Huckleberry Seed newest member of Poker Hall of Fame
 

(PRESS RELEASE) -- 1996 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Huckleberry “Huck” Seed is the 2020 inductee to the Poker Hall of Fame.

In addition to being a fixture of high stakes cash games for several decades, Seed has several notable tournament wins, including four (4) World Series of Poker gold bracelets. Seed won the 2009 NBC Heads up Tournament for $500,000 and the 2010 World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions. His total live tournament winnings are currently $7,649,864.

Seed, a Las Vegas resident, stands 6-foot-7 and was an all-state basketball player in Montana for Corvallis high school. He went on to star on the basketball team at Caltech college, where he studied electrical engineering. Away from the table, there are many tall tales of Seed’s wagers, Nicknamed the “Master of the Prop Bet,” additional Seed bets included he could train his long frame to do a standing backflip within six months and not shave for an entire year.

“Hearing the news that I am being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame this year brought back memories of my early poker days, walking into the Binion’s Horseshoe, about to start a poker session, admiring all the Poker Hall of Famers on the wall,” Seed said. “It feels good to be included with all the poker legends that I once idolized and competed against over the years. Thank you everyone.”
