Tommy Angelo

"No one is tiltless, which means everyone can tilt less." Insights like that are what drove the popularity of Angelo’s first book, Elements of Poker, now a poker classic that is loved for its fresh and practical perspectives. Since he began offering coaching in 2004, two hundred students have paid for his candid advice, wanting more of what they found in his poker articles and videos. In 2017, Angelo completed Painless Poker. “I have no words left,” he wrote to his mailing-list fans. "I put them all in here.” Painless Poker combines Angelo’s own struggles with a fictional poker-coaching seminar featuring seven suffering poker players. It's an innovative combination of memoir, fiction, and poker instruction. In 2019, Angelo released two books. Waiting for Straighters is about preflop play at No-limit Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha. The other release is Angelo's first non-poker book. It's called Dailyness: How to Sustain a Meditation Practice. 2019 also saw the birth of PokerSimple, a series of YouTube videos Tommy is making in collaboration with friend Lee Jones. They come out every Wednesday. When at home in Oakland, California, Angelo writes, cooks, meditates, and makes music, as part of what he calls his “urban monastic lifestyle.” He cohabits with two cats, and Kay, his wife.
