There are 58 players remaining in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship and Ben Yu leads the way with 126,600 chips. In total just 16 players will get paid, so they're a long way away from knowing who those players will be.

Australian poker phenom James Obst sits in second place, and he's followed by Russian Nikolay Losev in third. Former winners of this event Freddie Ellis, Henry Orenstein, and Bertrand Grospellier are each still alive while other top pros and successful stud players like Eric Buchman, Frank Kassela, and Phil Hellmuth are in the hunt as well.

Meanwhile short stacks David Singer, Gabe Kaplan, and Daniel Negreanu will look to double-up quickly to keep their hopes alive. The goal today is to play 10 levels or get down to a final table of eight players. Stay tuned for Day 2 coverage of Event #61 here on PokerNews!
