Introducing Our New Official Pick to Win It: Howard Lederer

Howard-lederer Last week or maybe two weeks ago we announced that we were retiring Huck Seed as our "Official Pick to Win It."TM

For those new to the site, we've basically been picking Huck Seed to win every major event (WSOP Main Event, NBC Heads Up, $50k H.O.R.S.E.) for the past four years, save the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event when we randomly switched to Chino Rheem.

Now that Huck has captured his big trophy, it's time to move on and annoit a new "Official Pick to Win It."

We offered a hint last week or possibly two weeks ago that had absolutely nothing to do with who we were going to select. Most of you thought we were going with Patrik Antonius. That wouldn't have been a bad choice. However, we feel like there is someone more due, more deserving, more ready to pop back up from under the radar and claim a major crown. So our new OPTWITM is none other than Howard Lederer.

When we told Howard of this, he responded by saying:

"I'm thrilled to be your guy. Hopefully it won't take long for me to justify your pick."

Not only are we confident of Howard coming through for us, we're also particularly pleased to add the term "chip lederer" to our lexicon and will use it liberally whenever Bub is near the top of the leaderboard.

Stay tuned...
