Bruce describes himself as "a doctor, not a pro poker player," despite his extended record of success. His hobbies include poker and fishing. He taught his skills to his youngest son, Archie.
In 2007, Van Horn made the final table of the $1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em event. He finished in 6th place, earning $36,732. He was also featured in a segment aired by ESPN during the episode where he was at the final table. In the segment, a number of top professional players, including T. J. Cloutier, Scotty Nguyen, and Chris Ferguson, were asked who the second-place finisher at the 1996 WSOP Main Event was. No one knew the answer because 1996 was one of the few years that the Main Event final table was not broadcast. Van Horn commented at the final table, in conversation with some of the other players, that he was happy that this event was being recorded so this time there would be proof that he had made the final table.
