Kassela Kills: WSOP Day 10 Recap

Jerry Yang
2007 Main Event champ Jerry Yang is making a rare appearance in the $1.5k Six-Handed No-Limit Hold-em event.

Day 10 of the 2010 WSOP had plenty of drama, with many top pros facing off in the $10k Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship.

By the end of the day Frank Kassela had grabbed the chip lead in the Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship, American Yan Chen won a WSOP bracelet and the money bubble burst on Day 2 of the $1k No-Limit Hold'em.

Here's a more detailed look at what went down Monday at the 2010 WSOP:

Event #16 - $1.5k Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

One of the trends  we've seen so far at the 2010 WSOP has tournaments coming close to making the money on the first day.

This $1.5k Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event burst the bubble on Day 1, with the original field of 1,663 whittled down to an astounding 149.

2007 Main Event champion Jerry Yang is still in the hunt in a rare public appearance, along with other notables such as Al "Sugar Bear" Barbieri, Eric Buchman and Mark Seif.

Day 2 begins Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.

Event #13 - $1k No-Limit Hold'em

We saw this event go deep into the money, as players advancing from Day 1a and 1b came back Monday.

The original field of 3,042 is down to 56, with David Baker, Burt Boutin and Andy Black amongst the remaining notables.

Day 3 commences at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, and play is scheduled to go down to a final table of nine.

 Event #14 - $1.5k 2-7 Draw Lowball No-Limit

Yan Chen took down his first career WSOP bracelet, outlasting Arizona-native Mike Wattel in the heads-up finale.

Chen takes the bracelet from a starting field of 250 players, and takes home $92,817 for the first-place finish.

Nick Binger and Alexander Kravchenko also made the final table but finished short of the bracelet.

Event #15 - $10k Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship

A field of all-stars began Day 2 of the Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship, drawing the attention of many spectators in the Amazon Room.

Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Eli Elezra, Erik Seidel and Jennifer Harman were all in the field when play kicked off, and it was a viewer's delight with top pros hanging in throughout the day.

Of the 107 players who started the day only 18 players survived to see Day 3. Still two places away from the money in the event.

Frank Kassela finished with the chip lead with 515,000 chips but John Juanda, Marco Johnson and Steve Zolotow are all in the top 10.

Play continues at 3 p.m. on Tuesday and will play all the way down to a winner.
