Biography

Parker Talbot is best known in the poker world for his exploits online with more than $3.4 million in online tournament cashes. His popularity soared with his popular Twitch stream under the handle “tonkaaaaP”.

He is a PokerStars Ambassador having joined in June 2016.

Intro

Born in Ontario, Canada, Talbot became interested in poker at a young age of 13 after watching the World Poker Tour on television with his parents. He played against his dad for many years before he first played in a casino on his 18th birthday.

Talbot immediately lost the $100 he had before his father gave him another $100 as a present. From there, he never looked back.

The origins of his popular “tonkaaaa” and “tonkaaaaP” online screennames came about thanks to his hockey coach calling him a Tonka truck and the nickname sticking.
