LAS VEGAS–The other particularly exciting event this year was the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event — a limit-structured combination of different games … all leading to a super-prestigious No-Limit Hold’em final table. There wasn’t a single table that wasn’t at least half-full of well-known pros.

Mike Sexton drew a particularly tough table … one that would get only tougher when Mike the Mouth Matusow and Phil Hellmuth joined him. (Fortunately, Mike brought his iPod.)

Mark Tenner gives off a tell looking at his cards, and then smartly decides to muck.

Meanwhile, three PartyPoker players got to take part in this prestigious event after qualifying online. And though none of them made the final table, they did get to enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

Lastly, while all this was going on, Tom Sexton decided to not make things tough on his brother, so instead of HORSE, he was playing the $1,000 Seniors NLHE event.


The excitement doesn’t stop here at the WSOP. Nor does the clicking of chips — one thing that is very different from online poker. More to come …
