RIP Hans “Tuna” Lund

by , Nov 6, 2009 | 12:36 pm

The day before the November Nine return to conclude the World Series of Poker Main Event comes word from Matt Savage on the passing of poker veteran Hans “Tuna” Lund earlier this morning of cancer at the age of 59. Winner of two WSOP bracelets, along with two appearances at the WSOP Main Event final table (2nd in 1990 and 3rd in 1992). The 1990 final table featured a heads-up duel with Mansour Matloubi, culminating in one of the more dramatic hands in WSOP history (apologies in advance for the tacky promotion running along the bottom of the screen):

    I just watched this for the first time, and gotta say … wow, I really dig the coverage of old events without hole cards. I know how important they are, but the analysis and drama is really good without.

    Also find the smoking at the table amusing.
