Gary Herbert "The Choirboy" Jones (born 29 October 1972) is a professional poker player from Stafford, Staffordshire, England. He is also a regular color commentator on The Poker Channel.

Jones had a 2nd-place finish to Jac Arama in his first appearance on Late Night Poker. He went on to finish 5th in the Runners-Up Final (having suffered a bad beat against Marty Wilson) eventually won by Joe Beevers.

At the 2004 World Series of Poker, Jones finished in 17th place. Surprisingly, he never faced eventual winner Greg Raymer throughout the entire tournament.

Jones considers pot limit Omaha to be his best game.

As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $500,000.

He plays online poker at PokerStars under the username "p10ker" and at PartyPoker as "MyimaTsarong" and at Fulltilt Poker using his own name.

In November 2009, Gary finished in 4th place in FTOPS event #22, the two-day event. He won $193,462 for his efforts, his biggest online cash to date. He has also won $27,000 in the World Championship of Online Poker.

He has chosen not to attend any live poker event where he has to fly for environmental reasons. This includes the World Series of Poker. For a similar reason he has dyed his hair green for the World Series of Poker Europe 2007 where he was called 'The Al Gore of Poker'.
