World Series Of Poker - H.O.R.S.E. Tournament

The $50.000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. tournament consists of 5 different games and is considered the most prestigious of the World Series - you really need skill to win this one. Annie Duke, Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey (top photo) all at one table, while Annie's brother, Howard Lederer (back left) gets bounced early. Annie Duke and Barry Greenstein were sitting together at one point, and defending champion, Scotty Nguyen faces off Vitaly Lunkin, this year's $1.9 million winner of the $40,000 buy-in 40-th anniversary opening tournament.

More famous players than you can shake a stick at and ESPN is not televizing this tournament. If they're not taping this, what are they going to show? Me over at the 1/2 cash game getting my aces cracked?

  1. Nice shots.

    The one I took (who you see from the back) wasn't Annie Duke, but a friend named Carol Kline. Annie was one table over (along with Negraneu, Mike the Mouth and Chrisy Gazes -- a tought table for sure. (excuse spelling)
