Tommy Thomas was a man who knew how to beat the odds. As son of the legendary card hustling and golf-gambling Titanic Thompson, Tommy followed in his father’s footsteps.
"He loved to play 'hold um,' Texas hold them. He started the world’s hold um tournament in Los Vegas at Benny Venny’s Horseshoe Club," says Tommy. "He was the host. He and Chill Wells hosted that game, and he’s in the poker Hall of Fame out in Las Vegas. He gambled all over the world, all over the United States."
