Phil Ivey was in London for the EPT 2010 and we had the time to interview him for a few questions. About him, he started poker when he was kid, his father initiated him at the game and certainly because he is from the Nevada, Phil Ivey started to play at poker in the casinos of Las Vegas.
Little anecdote about Phil: he played at the casino before 21 years old and used to present a fake identity at the doormen of the casino to play his hobby poker. His nickname was “Jerome no Home” because he couldn’t leave the casino, he wanted to play and play again. Also, the player told us that to become a great player you have to love poker online and be patience, train every day at the poker through internet or during tournament at casinos and analyse your adversaries all the time. Believe him he knows what he is talking about!
