Biography

Tom McEvoy spent most of his working life as an accountant, an industry he’d aspired to work in since graduating with a BS Honours degree in the field. By the time he reached his thirties though, Tom had grown tired of his job and began to look for a better way to earn a living. Luckily, he’d always been good at playing cards.

While he may not get as much TV time as some of the bigger names in poker; ask any major pro to list the greatest players of all time and Tom’s name would almost certainly pop up. He was around in the days when events like the World Series attracted only the most skilful players and has a tournament results record that is enviable to say the least. Tom has won an incredible four WSOP* bracelets, a figure that puts him right up there in a select group of players that have won more than two. His best year came in 1983, when he took down the $1,000 Limit Hold’em event for $117,000. A few days later, he went on to win the Main Event, cashing for $540,000. His other bracelet wins were in the $1,000 Limit Razz event in 1986 and in 1992’s $1,500 Omaha Limit event. These two victories helped Tom add a further $121,600 to total live earnings of over $2,500,000. In the years since, he has continued to find success in the biggest buy-in events around the world, and scored a victory for the old guard when he took down the Champions Invitational tournament at the 2009 WSOP* - winning the Binion Cup and a 1970 Corvette for his efforts.

Away from the casino, Tom has also built a solid reputation as a respected poker author, with thirteen books currently published. In what spare time he gets, he enjoys collecting stamps, watching movies, reading about history and dining at fine restaurants.

With his place in poker history already secure, it’s almost irrelevant what Tom achieves in the future. Yet with so much experience and natural skill for the game, don’t be surprised if he wins another major event soon. Tom is a member of Team PokerStars Pro and plays online using the screen name ‘TomMcEvoy’.
