Hoyt Corkins

After winning the World Series of Poker in 1992, Hoyt took a decade lng break from the game.

He came back with a vengeance in 2003 when he started playing in the big tournaments again. He won the WPT Foxwoods World Poker Finals No Limit Hold’Em event, beating among others Phil Hellmuth who nickmaned him Mr All In. This was a dig at Corkins, but in retaliation the mild mannered player only said that Hellmuth deserved to finish higher than third.

He prefers to play the WPT and WSOP, his games of choice are No Limit Hold’Em and Pot Limit Omaha.
