Day 2 of Event #10: $1,500 Dealer's Choice has wrapped up, and 21 players go through to Day 3. Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Benny Glaser finished the day as the chip leader with a stack of 489,500 and he’ll be in contention for a possible fourth bracelet when play resumes Wednesday at 2 p.m local time.

Other big stacks in the room include Rob Campbell (454,500), Michael Chow (443,000), and WSOP bracelet winners Frankie O’Dell (342,000) and “Miami” John Cernuto. The tournament will play to a winner Wednesday, with the first-place prize of $144,957 on the line.

The money bubble burst on Day 2, with 71 players assuring themselves of at least the min-cash of $2,250. Notable players finishing in the money included WSOP bracelet winners Ben Yu ($2,383), David “ODB” Baker ($2,871), Tom Franklin ($2,871), Frank Kassela ($3,299), Greg Mueller ($3,299), Andrew Barber ($3,299) and Dan Matsuzuki ($3,904).

The tournament will play down to an 18-player redraw on Wednesday and those players will compete until the bracelet winner has been decided.

Glaser went on a surge at the end of Day 2, making an extraordinary hero call and winning a massive pot at the expense of fellow O’Dell on the very last hand of the night in limit hold'em

O'Dell and the rest of the table were in disbelief, as Glaser called O'Dell's river bet with just king-high, and the call was correct as O'Dell was forced to table a failed ten-high bluff.
