"puCK" is an American Protoss player who is currently playing for IvDgaming.
On April 11th, 2012, puCK and Fitzyhere competed against each other in a BO21 showmatch to find out which of them would become part of ROOT Gaming's roster. After a hard fought battle puCK emerged victorious with a 11-8 score and joined ROOT's roster. As it happens ROOT accepted both Fitzyhere and puCK to their roster. On October 16, 2012, ROOT Gaming announced that puCK would be leaving the team to focus on personal issues. A month later, puCK re-joined the team.

 Heart of the Swarm
In WCS America 2013 Season 1, puCK was one of two players, alongside DeMusliM, to qualify for Premier League through the Challenger League qualifier and bracket stages. This included a 2-0 victory over Suppy, the best performing American in Season 1.
puCK played in the Acer TeamStory Cup Season 1 starting on March 27, 2013, as a member of ROOT Gaming. puCK was fairly successful in PvT and PvZ, going 3-0 and 3-1, respectively, but had an abysmal 0-6 record against Protoss for a subpar total score of 6-7.
In the Round of 32 of WCS America 2013 Season 2 Premier League, puCK seized a 2-1 win over MacSed before suffering consecutive 1-2 losses to Jaedong in the winner's match and MacSed in the final match. Against MacSed, puCK favored quick Blink research, which was read by his opponent and exploited with early aggression and quick Dark Templar tech. After falling to Challenger League, puCK defeated HyuN, who had just won 2013 DreamHack Open Valencia, but lost to Neeb 0-2, despite having defeated him the previous season. In the group stage, puCK advanced to Premier League for Season 3 by defeating mOOnGLaDe 2-1 and 2-0.
In the final season of the 2013 WCS America, puCK was placed in a group with teammate Minigun, CranK, and Scarlett. After falling to Scarlett 1-2, puCK defeated Minigun 2-1 to face CranK in the final match. In the third game of the match, puCK fell victim to an unusual Stargate into Dark Templar build to fall out of the tournament in the Round of 32. In Challenger League, puCK defeated JonSnow 2-1, received a walkover past Revival, and defeated HuK 2-1.
