Today’s guest on the Chasing Poker Greatness podcast is the founder of Faded Spade & Above the Felt Entertainment Tom Wheaton.

Tom and I both entered the poker world at about the same time which means Tom has been a cardplayer for a very, very long time.

When we got into poker current poker supernova Landon Tice was barely 4-years-old.

If that doesn’t make me feel old then I guess nothing will – yeesh.

But even though Tom entered poker in 2004, he took a very different career path than your average everyday grinder which you’re about to hear all about.

He even almost dropped out of the poker world entirely because, you know, who’s got time for a hobby like poker when you have a full career and growing family?

But the poker gods were not finished with Tom just yet…

In today’s conversation, you’re going to learn:

The amazing story of how Tom lucked his way into getting connected with WPT executives.

How FadedSpade managed to disrupt the playing card industry.

Why Tom’s wife was a catalyst in his ultimate decision to Chase Poker Greatness…

And much, MUCH more!

Without any further ado, I bring to you the founder of Faded Spade (The OFFICIAL playing card of the World Poker Tour) & Above the Felt entertainment which already represents some of the biggest and brightest names in the poker world, the one and only Tom Wheaton.
