A field of 152 players started in Event 12, the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em. Making Wednesday's Day 2 was what it took to make the money and 32 players did just that. From there, three rounds of matches were played and when all was said and done, only four players survived to have a shot at capturing the World Series of Poker gold bracelet tomorrow.
Among the players that were eliminated in the round of 32 were Scott Baumstein (29th), Tommy Vedes (28th), Kevin Saul (26th), Eric Froehlich (25th), Andrew Lichtenberger (23rd), Mark Radoja (21st), Richard Lyndaker (19th), and Darren Elias (18th). They each earned $10,966.
Those who fell in the sweet 16 and collected $20,674 include Antonio Esfandiari (16th), Jonathan Jaffe (13th), Paul Volpe (12th), and Vanessa Selbst (9th).
Following them out the door with losses in the elite eight worth $56,380 were Michael Drummond (8th), Andrew Robl (7th), Jeffrey Gross (6th), and Chris Moore (5th).
