Before turning to poker, Krux was a diamond merchant. He also once consulted with Native Americans about casinos and poker rooms.

Krux has made the final table of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) $10,000 no limit hold'em main event on three occasions (6th in 1990, 5th in 1994 and 6th in 2004 where he was eliminated by eventual winner Greg "Fossilman" Raymer.)

Krux also won a WSOP bracelet in the 1996 $1,500 pot limit hold'em, defeating a final table that included "Miami" John Cernuto.

As of 2010, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,400,000.[1] His 12 cashes at the WSOP account for $1,178,820 of those winnings.[2]

The casino where he mostly plays poker is Turning Stone Casino located in Verona, New York, when he is not participating on the tournament circuit.

Krux is married with four children.
