Born in Marin County, Eli McCargar began playing poker with his friends at age 14 and quickly found that he had a knack for taking their money.

After a few years moonlighting in the startup world, Eli is now dedicating his full attention to poker, and is a regular fixture in tournaments and cash games on the Bay Area poker circuit.
