Mark began playing poker in January 2008 after coming from a poker playing family including brothers, father, & uncles that all now form FTP.

This details his journey through poker starting in January 2008 playing over Paul’s bar to a year on when he went onto win the January 2009 Aspers £100 (+£10) NLH F/O collecting £1500. Mark is predominately an online player exclusively through PokerStars & has trademarked PokerStars clothing with regular appearance around North East casino’s sporting their gear. Mark opts for a TAG style although by his own admittance is prone to a Mike Matusow blow up.

Despite the kudos from winning a UK festival event Mark is like any great player still willing to learn & develop his game.

Mark is a recruitment consultant by profession & when not either in the office or on the felt he like’s to spend time with his wife Diane & his 2 children Lauryn & Zach. Mark has been passionate about football & particularly MUFC since a young age which inevitably rubbed off on younger brother Daniel, more recently Mark began playing golf recreationally but this appears to have taken a back seat while he pursues poker.
