About me

I always wanted to be a writer when I grow up. And a musician. And a poker player. And that's how it turned out. I made my living in the 80's playing drums and piano. Then for 15 years I was a professional poker player, dabbling in writing. And now I write full time. Though I must say, I still don't feel like I've grown up yet.

Painless Poker is my third book with the word Poker in the title, and likely my last. Next I want to try to write novels.

The reason I feel qualified to write about the dark side of poker, and ways to brighten it up, is because I have coached 100 poker players, mostly professional players, on all the most delicate aspects of the game, such as self-destruction, table presence, and convincing your mom that you're not insane for dedicating your life to a card game.

Thanks for stopping by. There's tons of free content at my site, and also details about my coaching program. You can check that out at tommyangelo.com.
