Event 27: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E.

Ballet Recital & the H.O.R.S.E. Urologist

• Taso 2

With the blinds and limit so slow, catching notable hands is a challenge. We just canvassed the tournament floor trying to catch something, but to no avail; nonetheless, we did discover some new faces in the field.

Rep Porter was seen sitting at Table 28. If you recall, Porter missed Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz, the event he had won in 2011, in order to attend his daughter's ballet recital. It was a fine example of having one's priorities in order, but clearly today Porter is focused on nothing but H.O.R.S.E.

Another man we spotted was David Arsht, who recently captured his first World Series of Poker bracelet in Event 13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em for $221,921. The former urologist proved his poker chops that day, though you might figure him for a veterinarian today as dabbles in the H.O.R.S.E. arena.

Other players we've found out and about include Jon Turner, Maria Ho, Michael Mizrachi, Shaun Deeb, Jeff Madsen, Allen Cunningham, Cary Katz and Joe Serock.
