Not sure why, but he was one of the first players we started following when we got into the industryTM. Just seemed like an interesting dude, and we liked the way he played. That’s why he was our first Official Pick to Win ItTM (a distinction now applied to Howard Lederer).
Huck eventually fulfilled that designation last year by capturing the 2009 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, an event he’s pretty much pwned since it began. When we spoke with him at last year’s draw party red carpet, we thought he was stoned. Watch the clip, seems like it, right?
Apparently he’s not. He’s just a healthy dude flying high on some good organic shit. Where can we get some of that? Holy shit.
