WSOP Event #49: And then there was one

wsop2009_thn.gifWe suppose it had to come to an end at some point. We were just hoping Barry Greenstein's winning streak in the $50,000 HORSE event wouldn't end today.

As we've mentioned a few times over the last few days, Barry Greenstein came into this big events as the only player to cash in every one of the HORSE World Championship. Each year he had improved on his previous performance. He made the final table the last two years.

Greenstein had a very tough Day 2 and looked to be on the verge of elimination a couple of times. He persevered, though, and managed a late rally. He came into Day 3 with enough chips to do some damage.

Instead, everything went south. No matter what he did right, the hands went wrong. He couldn't win a pot all day long and suffered three big river suckouts that spelled his exit.

Earlier in the day, Team PokerStars Pro Alex Kravchenko discovered his 80,000 chips weren't going to do him much good in Day 3. He was eliminated within the first hour of play, as well.

The remaining 43 HORSE players are now on their first break of the day. When play returns, Friend of PokerStars Bill Chen will be in action and looking to carry the PokerStars flag to the final table.
