Marty Wilson earned his nickname “Mad” when he jumped into a zoo’s polar bear enclosure as a teenager in order to escape from rival football fans. His subsequent life has lived up to the moniker and made him one of the best-loved and most entertaining anecdotalists in poker.

It will culmination of a fantastic weekend of poker, with Europe’s largest live tournament in terms of the size of the field, The Boylepoker International Poker Open, kicking off on Friday 15th.
