Eugene Katchalov Leads the Final Eight into Day 3

After two tournament days and 20 levels of 60 minutes each, the 331 strong field of Event #49: $1,500 Seven Card Stud has been whittled down to the last eight hopefuls. The finalists will return back to the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel and Casino at 2 p.m. local time with Eugene Katchalov in the lead with 521,000.

Katchalov won this very event in 2011 after overcoming a huge chip deficit heads up against Alessio Isaia to win his first WSOP gold bracelet. It will be another challenge for Katchalov today, as he faces stiff competition with five other WSOP bracelet winners still left in contention.

Shaun Deeb follows close behind with 485,000, while Adam Friedman (396,000) and Yaniv Birman (386,000) are in the middle of the pack. Four-time WSOP bracelet winner Max Pescatori bagged up 315,000, just ahead of Katherine Fleck with 256,000. The two short stacks are John Monnette (85,000) and Cory Zeidman (44,000).

All eight finalists have $8,941 guaranteed for their efforts, but all eyes are set on the first place payout of $111,101. Here is how the players will line up for the start of Day 3:

Seat 1: Yaniv Birman - 386,000 (16 BB)
Seat 2: Adam Friedman - 396,000 (16 BB)
