Although his first WSOP bracelet came in 2001, Ivey didn’t officially grab the attention of the poker world until he captured three bracelets in 2002, tied for the most in a single year record with Ted Forrest and Phil Hellmuth. He is a regular in “The Big Game” at the Bellagio and his exploits in high stakes poker have been immortalized in the poker classic The Professor, The Banker, and The Suicide King: An Inside Look at the richest Poker Game of All Time.
