Thursday August 4, 2011 : $670,665 and change for poker pro
 
Video poker fans were speculating Tuesday on where famous poker pro Huck Seed was when he tweeted news of a major video poker machine win, boosting his information with a photograph of the generous machine and its welcome message to call for an attendant.

Seed triggered the interest when he tweeted: "Internet poker is down in the US, but I'm still pressing buttons!" The photograph embedded in the tweet showed a machine displaying a $670,665.60 win.
 
The poker pro was apparently playing $500 a hand and had ‘invested' some $50,000 over six hours before he was so generously rewarded.
