For decades, Larry Conners has been a staple in the local media scene here in St. Louis. He spent 27 years as a news anchor on TV. Today he's chasing after his largest cash as a poker player.
St. Louis folks recognize Larry Conners from his days reporting on local news in the St. Louis market. Today we're doing the reporting on Larry.
For years, Larry was the news anchor on KMOV here in St. Louis. Recently, the media man has been making a name for himself on the poker scene as well. Conners finished third in a $350 HPT prelim here in St. Charles last September for $20,850. Today, he's looking to top that score by winning the Mini Series Main Event for $28,710. Conners is down to about 100,000 in chips with blinds at 5,000/10,000 so we expect him to make his move pretty soon.
Blinds - 5,000/10,000 - Big Blind Ante 10,000
