Early Years

Evelyn was born on the 14th of September 1975 in Toronto, Canada. She discovered her love for gaming at an early age. By the time she was 14, she had started making money playing pool. In an interview she confessed that as a kid she used to encourage other school children to bet their lunch money. After completing high school, 17 year old Evelyn started working as a dealer for poker and blackjack. This is where she learnt the chip tricks. It is also where she met the poker legend Daniel Negreanu. At the time he was yet to make it big in poker.

The relationship between Daniel and Evelyn was short lived, but they remained friends. Daniel became her poker coach and mentor. He helped her come up with a playing style that could successfully tackle aggressive players. She was soon obsessed with the game, dealing as well as playing in backrooms across the town.

For her 21st birthday, Daniel took Evelyn to Las Vegas. This was the first time she came across other professional poker players and recognized the huge potential in poker. She realized that talented professional poker players made millions and lived entirely off the winnings, and that she may be able to make it big in poker. One visit was all it took and Evelyn was hooked. The glitz, glamour and big money of Vegas compelled her to move to the sin city. Soon after arriving in Vegas, Evelyn started working as a blackjack and poker dealer. This gave her an excellent opportunity to observe other player, study their style of playing, learn about the tells and most importantly build-up a bankroll.

The event helped her catch the attention of the poker world and started off her career as a professional poker player. Since then, her successes at a number of poker tournaments have proved that she is not just a pretty face, but a serious poker player. Her ability to get over bad bets, stay even tempered and move on to play a solid game is probably her biggest strength as a poker player.
