Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond and Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky are two of the greatest online poker players in history, putting in many hands together on the virtual felt over the years. However, on Saturday at the WSOP, the two faced each other face-to-face.

Galfond and Sulsky advanced to play each other in the $10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em heads-up championship at the 2013 summer festival.

Both players, along with the other remaining 14, are vying for a first-place prize of $331,190. That sum kind of pales in comparison to what Galfond and Sulsky are used to gambling for on the Internet. However, the gold bracelet is on the line as well.

Galfond has far more experience live than Sulsky does. Galfond won a bracelet in 2008, while Sulsky has never cashed at the WSOP.

The tournament is scheduled to wrap up tomorrow. Stay tuned for more updates.
