Huck Seed Bio


Huck Seed may not be the type of poker celebrity who deliberately draws attention to himself, but the 1996 World Series of Poker champion's poker accomplishments sure do.

Seed is a self-professed gambler with a very impulsive nature. In 1989, he took a leave of absence from his engineering job at Caltech to play poker. He never returned.

Since then, he has won four WSOP bracelets. Two are in razz, one in pot-limit Omaha, and one for the 1996 no-limit hold'em main event. He has cashed in numerous major tournaments in nearly every form of poker that is still competitively played. His poker range is showcased in his WSOP bracelets, as well as in his seven-card stud event win at the 2000 World Poker Finalsand a seventh-place finish in the 2008 WSOP H.O.R.S.E. world championship.

Seed currently holds the best NBC National Heads-Up Championship record of all-time at 18-4. Seed has cashed in all five years of the tournament's history and won it all in 2009 for $500,000.

Seed is a Full Tilt pro.
