Player Bio – Joey Ingram

Joe Ingram, aka “Chicago Joey” is an American professional poker player and podcast host. He was born on June 24, 1982 in Chicago, Illinois.

Throughout his professional poker career, he stuck with his favorite poker format, online Pot Limit Omaha cash games, rarely venturing into anything else, be it tournaments or Hold’em. He’s best known in the poker community for his popular podcast titled Poker Life which he streams on his YouTube channel. On that same channel, he made videos about UFC fights that have garnered millions of views, far more than any of his poker content ever.

Ingram started off playing NLHE cash games both online and in land casinos. As he told Bluff Magazine Europe in an interview in 2014, his poker career didn’t have the most promising start.

“When I first started playing I was one of those fish online, who would deposit $1,000 and play $1/$2, $2/$4, $3/$6. I had no idea how to play poker, and I would run it up to a couple of thousand dollars and lose it all. (…) Once I turned 21, I started going to the casino. I would take all the money I made working as a waiter and I would go and lose it all.”

It would get to a point where his friends and family would worry he has a gambling problem. He started playing lower stakes on PokerStars after a while and eventually turned into a winning cash game player.

Joe Ingram created his YouTube channel in 2007. He debuted his Poker Life podcast on May 12th, 2014.

Poker Life eventually became one of the most popular poker podcasts on the web, and with that, Chicago Joey’s channel grew too. In October 2019, he reached 100,000 subscribers on YouTube.

His most popular videos aren’t related to poker at all, however. They are analysis of the post-fight brawl that broke out after the UFC match between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. The most viewed one has over 24 million hits.
