Chad Eveslage is an American poker player and three-time WSOP bracelet winner from Indiana with over $7.1 million in career earnings and two World Poker Tour (WPT) titles.
Growing up on a cow farm in southern Indiana, Eveslage discovered poker on ESPN during the Moneymaker Boom and started playing online. After starting off with play money, Eveslage “did well” in poker and started playing real money in high school.
At the 2022 WSOP, Eveslage defeated Jake Schindler heads-up to win Event #8: $25,000 High Roller for $1,415,610, the largest cash of his career.
Later in the year, Eveslage bested Steven Buckner in the record-breaking World Poker Tour (WPT) $10,400 Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $1 million and his second WPT title.
Eveslage came close to winning a third WPT title in November 2022 when he finished third in the 2022 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open (RRPO) $3,500 Main Event for $390,000 to give him the lead in the WPT Player of the Year race.
At the 2023 WSOP, Eveslage won two bracelets in the first week of the series, first in Event #5: $1,500 Dealer's Choice for $131,879 and then in Event #10: $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship for $311,428.
