Poker Legend Tom McEvoy Joins Game Face Gaming

It has been announced recently that legendary poker pro Tom McEvoy has joined reality gaming social network, Game Face Gaming, Inc as a pro consultant for its non-wagering online poker offering.
The US gaming platform is a subscription based social networking site currently in its Beta testing phase, and the addition of the highly respected Tom McEvoy is now being hailed as a major boon for Game Face Gaming. Commenting on the deal, company CEO Felix Elinson stated:
“We are thrilled to have a person with Tom’s credentials join our team. Tom McEvoy is one of the best known names in the poker world, not to mention a true gentleman of the game. Tom has an unquestionable reputation for integrity as well as a World Class Poker Player. His years of industry experience and guidance is a powerful addition to the team, while we go through the next stages of development and ultimately product release.”
The 66 year-old US poker pro started out his career as an accountant, but started playing poker full time in 1978 after being laid off from his job. In no time at all Tom McEvoy was making more money at poker than he ever had done while at the office and soon had a string of impressive results to his credit.
In 1983, Tom McEvoy then claimed his first WSOP bracelet at the $1,000 Limit Hold’em for $117,000, before then going on to take down the $10,000 Main Event for $580,000 the same year. He has since accumulated a total of 4 WSOP bracelets to go with his nearly $3 million in live winnings, and has been nominated several times for poker’s Hall Of Fame. He is also a respected poker author, and has published over a dozen strategy books.
Talking further about his new duties at Game Face Gaming, CEO Felix Elinson commented:
“In addition to being a member of the Face Up Pro Team, Tom will also do an online poker workshop for the Platinum members of Face Up Gaming on a monthly basis. We are proud to have a player of Tom’s caliber representing Faceup Gaming both online and in the poker instruction community.”
