Gambling is an industry that faces a great deal of criticism. However, for some, casino-based wins have been their saviour, giving them the funds to live a full, rich life.
This was certainly the case for poker legend, Marty Wilson. Famed for his high-profile wins, having won over £4m in tournaments around the world, ‘Mad’ Marty Wilson’s death has come as a shock to the gambling community.
Passing as the tender age of 62, the Wolverhampton man appeared on Channel 4 many times, showing off his undeniable poker talents.
The star passed after a short struggle with pancreatic cancer.
When falling ill, the poker community wanted to help, setting up a fundraising page to help raise funds for his treatment.
“For as long as I’ve known Mad Marty Wilson, he’s been devoted to helping those who need it. If you are playing the Irish Poker Open this year, save a thought for Mad Marty because hope’s a good thing” read one comment left on the page.
