2015 WSOP Main Event November 9 Profile: Tom Canuli

A word to the wise. If you can’t afford the truth, avoid a conversation with Tom Cannolly at all costs.

Now, that’s not to say you won’t like the interaction with a sweet 23-year-old man from North Cape May, New Jersey. In fact, the opposite is true. After spending just 10 minutes with him, you are almost guaranteed to feel energized and energized.

However, I have warned Canuli against saying that. Canuli is the poster child for the cliché “chest wrapped around his sleeve” ad, but at the same time, he exudes such unwavering affirmation that he doubts it’s real. 파워볼게임

“No, that’s the truth,” Canuli said with a smile when asked about his unwavering optimism and constant skill in spouting Tony Robbins-like words. “For some, it’s something that doesn’t care. Maybe they don’t want to hear the truth? But I’m sincere with myself and I mean it. That’s who I am and I won’t apologize for it.”

Like it or not, Canuli’s strong personality and tenacious self-motivation have helped guide him to the biggest stage in poker. In just over two weeks, he will be the youngest player on the table when he sits down at the Penn & Teller Theater at the Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino on Nov. 9.

Canuli has experienced a lot of desperate times since he started playing poker at the age of 16, risking his real money. He has ridden a wave of emotions as a professional poker player, and people often doubted him. But that uncertainty had never seeped into Canuli’s head, and even at the age of 18, his bank account went from $180,000 to nothing, and he had to “rebuild back into pennies” several times.

“I always knew that lower scores in my career would be temporary because of my ability to play the game,” he said with certainty. “I realized in high school this is what I want to do for a living. This was my dream and I didn’t stop pursuing to reach it. The word ‘stop’ isn’t in my vocabulary. If you keep pursuing your dream, you work hard, and you’re motivated, good things will come.”

He also credited the support of his family, especially his parents, Nikki and Tom. They were not sure what effect poker would have, but they supported his decision to specialize in it.

“I have always been completely honest with them about my finances and they always trusted me,” says Cannolly, who lives with her mother and two younger brothers, Christopher, 14, and Matt, 12. He also has a 25-year-old sister, Kelly.

Of course, a strong support system and a positive attitude are not the only reasons Canuli earned more than $1 million in lifetime income. He also excels in reading people’s instincts.
