Not too many people ever have won as much money in a handicapping contest as Ken Jordan did last Sunday, when he finished second at the 16th annual National Handicapping Championship, netting $250,000 in the process. Jordan’s a fascinating character who shared his insights in this one-on-one interview with me just days after his NHC score.

The tour is a year-long competition in which players accrue points in NHC qualifying events both online and in person throughout the year. Prizes are awarded to the top five finishers at the year’s halfway mark, and the top 20 finishers receive cash at year’s end – at least $250,000 will be awarded.
