Tom McEvoy is one of the best-known names in poker. Virtually all successful
poker players have read one or more of Tom’s six books: Tournament Poker,
How to Win at Poker Tournaments, Championship Hold ‘em (with TJ Cloutier),
Championship Omaha (with TJ Cloutier), Championship No-Limit and Pot-Limit
Hold ‘em (with TJ Cloutier) and Championship Stud (with Max Stern and Linda
Johnson).

Tom didn’t set out to be a poker player. He began his professional life as an
accountant. However, he quickly discovered that he could make a far better
living (and probably a more interesting one) at the poker tables, and moved
to Las Vegas in 1979 to pursue a full-time poker career.

Tom specialized in tournaments, which were far fewer in those days. In 1983,
just four years after beginning his poker career, Tom won his first World
Series of Poker bracelet – and no, it wasn’t in the main event. Tom won the
Limit Hold ‘em event and $117,000 in prize money. Six days later, he went on
to win the most coveted title in poker, the WSOP $10,000 Championship
Event, along with $540,000 in prize money and his second of four WSOP
bracelets. He went on to win the WSOP Razz title in 1986 and the WSOP
Limit Omaha title in 1992 (against his friend, Berry Johnston). He has
eighteen other final-table appearances at WSOP events, and a total of 27
money finishes.

Tom’s poker books are required reading for serious poker players, covering a
wide range of topics from general poker strategy, starting hands and money
management to reading players and taking poker thinking to higher levels.
He has been a featured columnist for Card Player magazine for eight years,
sharing poker knowledge in his Tournament Poker column every other week.

In addition to poker, Tom has a keen interest in backgammon, fine dining and
movies. He is a voracious reader, favoring fantasy and horror – his favorite
author is Stephen King. Tom is also an avid stamp collector, history buff and
collector of dragons.

Tom is a true gentleman of the game, with an unquestioned reputation for
integrity as well as world-class poker. We are proud to have a player of Tom’
s caliber, both as a player and a person, as a member of the PokerStars team.
