2. Phil Ivey. Phil Ivey has the reputation of being of the most formidable poker players in the world. He is even considered one of if not the smartest players in the world. He learned poker at a very young age at the hand of his grandfather. Where he got his poker education is very evident. His play style does not allow for jumping up and down yelling when he wins a big hand, and also does not allow for getting angry and whining when he takes a tough beat.
