huck2.jpgHuck Seed is a formidable opponent in heads-up play, but he has always seemed to fall just short of the ultimate prize in heads-up tournaments. The 1996 WSOP Main Event champion changed that with his victory at the 2008 Canadian Open Poker Championship Heads-Up Main Event. Huck Seed always did well at the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, cashing every year with two third-place finishes, including one this year. However, Huck would not receive his long-awaited victory at the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, as that would go to Chris Ferguson, who had also long-awaited his victory, as he had two runner-up finished prior to his victory. Huck didn’t have to wait long for another chance, taking down the Canadian Open event just weeks after losing out at the NBC event. Huck finished third in the inaugural Canadian Open in 2006, and in 2006 he would win it.

The 2008Canadian Open Poker Championship Heads-Up Main Event culminated in a best-of-three series between Huck Seed and Brad “Yukon” Booth. The battle between Huck and Brad took more than five hours to resolve, with Huck Seed emerging victorious from the hard fought contest, earning the grand prize of $100,000. Bard Booth would earn $50,160 for his second place finish.
