2010 WSOP bracelet winner Chris Bell has the lead with 27 players remaining in the World Series of Poker Circuit $10,000 Eastern Regional Championship at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City.

The event played down to its final three tables shortly before midnight Monday with several big names busting before the day’s end, including Day 1 chip leader Vanessa Selbst, Jordan Morgan, “Miami” John Cernuto, Brock Parker, Bernard Lee, Dwyte Pilgrim, Nick Schulman, TJ Cloutier and online poker star Isaac Baron.

Chris Klodnicki, Victor Ramdin, Beth Shak, Sorel Mizzi, Jonathan Little and WSOP Circuit Atlantic City main event winner Matthew Waxman are still in contention headed into Day 3 Tuesday.

Bell has more than $2.3 million in career live tournament earnings including a win in the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8 event at the 2010 WSOP this past summer.

The second of four WSOPC Regional Championships drew 136 players to Atlantic City this week, creating a $1,279,624 prize pool with $358,295 reserved for first.

The final nine will all win seats into the $1 million-dollar freeroll WSOP Circuit National Championship at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas May 27-29.

The WSOPC Eastern Regional Championship will play down to a final table Tuesday and a winner will be crowned Dec. 22.

The final table will be televised on VERSUS Network.
