Poker couple David Benyamine (top left photo) and Erica Schoenberg (top right photo) were among the pros who busted early in today's $2k buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event.

The first tournament to kick off today at the 2008 WSOP was the $2K Buy-In No-Limit Hold'em event (Event No. 23).

1,344 runners entered--about 300 less than last year--bringing the total prize pool to $2,446,000. First place walks with $507,613.

Players are currently on dinner break, and only 350 remain. It's Barry Greenstein who leads with 53,000. Swede Simon Lindqvist is close behind with 51,000. Other big names who are up early include Men Nguyen, Young Phan, and TJ Cloutier.

Maridu11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth is still among the crowd, stacked at 13,000. He's been 'dodging some bullets' today, surviving an all in early with KK against AA when he spiked a set on the river.

Our crazy Brazilian friend Maridu (photo at right) is up there near the top with 40,000 at the dinner break.

Chip counts here.

Guess whose boobs are whose here.
