Heart RIP Johnny Hughes

Posted on his Facebook account about an hour ago. Johnny died at home peacefully this afternoon.

RIP Johnny. I never met you, but you seemed like an interesting character who spoke his mind and enjoyed telling a good story. I've miss seeing your occasional posts around here and am sad I won't see any more.

to borrow Johnny's customary sign off:

I see that he's been posthumously unbanned. Nice gesture. RIP.

RIP Johnny.

I enjoyed his writing style blend of fiction and non. Whether the BS meter was high in some posts more than others, the man entertained. Hope you win in the big game on the other side.

re: RIP Johnny Hughes

I remember Johnny from back when I used to post on Pokerforums.org in the beginning days of the poker boom. He was the same crazy character back then and always got his balls busted, but I always had a warm spot in my heart for him.

He cracked me up. He will be missed.

RIP Johnny.

+1

Genuinely enjoyed the sporadic stories over the years. Who cares if they may have been slightly embellished? Most good stories are!

RIP Johnny

A good man, there to see poker grow explosively. Great story-teller.

Only positive is that the Seniors will start half an hour earlier.

He slipped a bit towards the end. Can happen to anyone.
