Farnood win at WSOPE good news for Afghanistan
The Afghan poker scene is going crazy with rejoicing right now. First question: Why? Second: Is there really an Afghan poker scene?

So here's how the final table plus the last few stragglers in the 2008 WSOPE £2,500 H.O.R.S.E turned out:
|Place ||Name ||Prize |
|1st ||Sherkhan Farnood ||£76,999 |
