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.

Follow all of the Day 3 action with the PokerNews live reporting team as the $1,500 Dealers Choice crowns a bracelet winner Wednesday!

Glaser Makes a Savage Call

mnuwwarah • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Limit Hold'em

Benny Glaser was in the small blind and check-called Frankie O'Dell, betting in the cutoff on {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs}. The river was a {q-Clubs} and Glaser checked. O'Dell bet and Glaser went deep into the tank. He thought for about a minute and called.

"Good call," O'Dell said with a sigh, showing {10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

Glaser showed {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for just king-high.

"Benny da champ!" exclaimed Mike Ross. "Look at Benny da champ. That one's gonna get written up."

"They can write how bad he played it," O'Dell grumbled.

Glaser smiled and said something back softly that we couldn't hear.

Monnette Paid Twice

2-7 Single Draw

After the draw, James Pritchard checked and John Monnette bet 23,000 into about 40,000. Naoya Kihara called on the button and James Pritchard thought a bit and called in the big blind.

"Nine-seven," Monnette said, showing {9-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}.

Pritchard mucked what looked like a nine-eight, following Kihara in conceding.

"Nice hand," Pritchard said.

"I didn't know if I liked it when you overcalled," Monnette admitted.

No-Limit Hold'em

Mike Watson opened to 9,000 on the button, and Frankie O'Dell three-bet to 25,000 in the small blind. Watson called, and the flop came {k-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}.

O'Dell put in the continuation bet for 40,000, Watson reraised to put O'Dell at risk, and O'Dell called.

O'Dell: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Watson: {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{j-Spades}, and O'Dell's pair of eights held up.

Kelly Needs Heat

mnuwwarah • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Stud Hi-Lo

Peter Kelly had paired his first up-card on sixth, but he was facing a bet from Benny Glaser, who made open nines.

Peter Kelly: {x-}{x-}/{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Benny Glaser: {x-}{x-}/{3-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

Kelly thought awhile and folded, leaving himself just a few bets.
