Breaking News: Huck Seed Wins Major Poker Tournament

Huck Seed wins 2008 Canada Open Poker ChampionshipAs many of you know, the Entities who comprise Wicked Chops Poker have been picking poker pro Huck Seed to win a major poker tournament for the past few years now, but to no avail.

First he disappointed at the 2006 National Heads-Up Poker Championship when he came up just short in 3rd place. Then the 2007 WSOP Main Event, where he finished 73rd. And most recently he fell short at the 2008 National Heads-Up Poker Championship, coming in 3rd once again.

Well, word just got out today that Huckleberry Seed has won the 2008 Canadian Open Poker Championship in Calgary, Alberta, where it must be like 70 degrees below zero today. If the sun is out.

The tournament was a $5,000 buy-in event featuring 128 players competing in a heads-up format. Among the big name pros who competed were Bill Edler, Mel Judah, Gavin Smith, Antonio Esfandiari, Greg Mueller, Phil Laak and Jennifer Tilly, a woman.

Seed, who first/last hit it big when he won the 1996 WSOP Main Event, was up against Canadian poker pro Brad "Yukon" Booth at the final table, and came away the victor, if you some how didn't read between the lines of this post. For the win, Seed takes home $100,000. Booth cashes $50,160.

"This was an amazing tournament in terms of both structure and quality of players" said Seed after his win. "I love it when the cream rises to the top and I get a chance to play with the best in the world. I am so happy that I finally won a heads up tournament!"

Among the top six finishers at the 2008 Canadian Open: Gavin Smith (4th - $30,000) and 2005 WSOP Main Event champ Joe Hachem (6th - $20,000).
