2007 World Series: Back in the saddle
I've decided that I will not ask Barry Greenstein about how much he lost in props to Eli Elezra last night. First of all, it's none of my business (nor, by extension, yours). Second, he's got better work to do than keep me up to date on his side action. Among the players in the $50,000 HORSE event who are flying the PokerStars flag, Greenstein finished Day 1 of the event with the most chips.
The marathon HORSE World Championship begins Day 2 with most of the field still in tact. Today will last just as late as last night with three days still to go. I've spent enough time rambling about how big, how important, and how prestigious this tournament is. Everybody understands that part now. With Day 1 out of the way, the real work of winning this thing begins.
While Greg Raymer is starting Day 2 off well, his table-mate and fellow Team PokerStars member John Duthie is not. Duthie is already looking for pasture with a little more green in it after an early Day 2 elimination.
Still alive today are Bill Chen, Daniel Negreanu, Isabelle Mercier, Matt Hawrilenko, Victor Ramdin, and, of course, Barry Greenstein.
