"I had an ID. I was Jerome, Jerome Graham. That was my name. Everybody in Atlantic City knew me as Jerome until I turned 21. When I turned 21, I walked into the Tropicana and found the shift manager. I said, Hey, my name's Phil." She said, "What?" I said, "My name's Phil. I'm sorry. She told me it was OK. She didn't think I was old enough to be in there anyway, but there was nothing they could do then; I was official."

"A lot of people who play professionally don't enjoy what they're doing, and you can tell, and it makes a difference. I love poker. I love everything about it. It's the greatest game in the world. I'm always trying to improve and always thinking about getting better. Some people I play against are just playing because that's their job, and that's a big advantage I have over them."
