2007 WSOP: Eli Elezra tops H.O.R.S.E. race
The first day of the real poker world championship, the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event, has ended. Eli Elezra tops the field, but the High Stakes Poker pro is hunted by a pack of big-time players including Carlos Mortensen, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and Doyle Brunson.
In total only 148 players entered the $50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E. event, but they are all world-class poker players who will do anything to win the tournament.
With the big starting stacks and the limit format, the tournament is scheduled to last for four days, but 23 players, including Jeffrey Lisandro, Johnny Chan, Gus Hansen, David Benyamine and Sam Fahra busted out already on the first day.
Day 2 starts off at 2 p.m. (PDT) and of course you can read all the latest live updates and see all the latest photos in the Live Tournaments Section here at PokerListings.com
Otherwise Event 38, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em was played down to the final table, and Event 40, $1,500 Mixed Hold'em got underway with its opening day.
