Phil Ivey said in a statement:
“WPT is one of the most respected brands in poker, and I’m honored to become a WPT Ambassador. My commitment and passion towards poker has never been higher and I look forward to working with the WPT to showcase poker around the world, adding to its continued expansion.”
Ivey’s history in the WPT goes back two decades since its inception. A win in the WPT L.A. Poker Classic in 2008 is backed up by a further nine final table appearances in major WPT tournaments.
He was also instrumental in helping WPT Global get off the ground earlier in the year by hosting a $10,000 Influencer Freeroll.

WPT Celebrates 20-Year History by Signing Up the Poker G.O.A.T
Adam Pliska, WPT CEO, sounded more than satisfied to have added such a great of the game to the WPT stable.
“Phil Ivey is one of the greatest to ever have played the game of poker. His career achievements and success as a frequent WPT final tablists underscore his deserving legacy as a true poker icon. As WPT celebrates its 20th-anniversary season, we have aligned the brand with talent and events that symbolize the very best in personal achievement. I cannot think of anyone who better represents that more than Phil, and I know players will appreciate the chance to interact with him at upcoming events.”
It has also been announced that Phil Ivey will be heavily involved at the WPT World Championship Festival at Wynn Las Vegas in December. He will be playing in the $10,400 WPT World Championship as well as many of the other events.
Outside of playing, Phil Ivey will also be available for several fan engagement meetings as well as an exclusive off-the-felt experience scheduled for December 10.
Fans of Phil Ivey who can’t travel to Las Vegas to meet their hero in December will almost certainly have a chance to square up against him on the WPT Global platform next year.
Those who harbour ambition to face Phil Ivey directly across the real felt rather than the virtual one, can actually qualify for prestigious WPT event on WPT Global for a heavily reduced investment.
