Huck Seed is as well-known for his outrageous prop bets as he is for becoming poker’s world champion after winning the 1996 World Series of Poker Main Event. Some of his rumored prop bets include running marathons with no prior training, attempting to run a 4:39-minute mile and doing standing back flips, which at 6’7” tall is no easy feat. His success at the WSOP and on the World Poker Tour has led to over $7 million in live tournament winnings and four WSOP bracelets.
