Marc “The Conv” Convey has attended plenty of World Series as a PokerNews blogger, not to mention extended stints behind the scenes as a commentator for the European Poker Tour.
Now it’s Convey’s turn in FRONT of the cameras. The Brighton-based player, who recently founded marketing agency 23 Digital, enjoyed an astonishing hand on Day 1 of the $1k No Limit which put him firmly in the spotlight.
The Conv flopped a set of Kings – and then hit a one-outer on the river for quads (busting three players in all, two with pocket Aces).
