Hoyt Corkins - Poker Player Hoyt Corkins
From what I've read on some other sites, Hoyt Corkins is one of those old school gentlemen who you can't even provoke into saying something bad about someone else, not even Phil Hellmuth. This is the biggest thing that impressed me about him. (That and the big black cowboy hat--I just love that whole cowboy hat and sunglasses look he's got going on.) On a side note, it's almost fashionable to dislike Phil Hellmuth Jr. I guess I go against the grain, because I like him very much, and even liked his book, Play Poker Like the Pros.
Anyway--Hoyt Corkins is my kind of poker player. I admire aggression, and I admire big black cowboy hats too, although I haven't worn a cowboy hat myself since I was in my early teens. (And I mean early, like 13 or so...)
Here are some more articles about Hoyt Corkins:
- World Poker Tour Winner Hoyt Corkins (This is the best article I've seen online about him. She apparently kept trying to get him to "dish the dirt" on Hellmuth, and he just wouldn't do it because he's such a class act.)
