Welcome back to Day 3 of Event No. 35, the $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship. Only eight have survived from a 256-player field largely comprised of poker's top players.

Each of our quarterfinalists has already accomplished a lot, defeating five opponents thus far to make it to today. But much work is still to be done. Three more rounds are left to be played, with the final being a best-of-three affair.

Here are the quarterfinal match-ups with which we'll begin today:

Jason Somerville vs. Kido Pham

Faraz Jaka vs. Ayaz Mahmood

Alexander Kostritsyn vs. Ludovic Lacay

Ernst Schmejkal vs. Vanessa Rousso

All eight are guaranteed paydays of at least $92,580 for making it this far, but each is eyeing that $625,682 first prize and WSOP bracelet that would come should they make it through three more tough opponents.

The action begins at 3 p.m. local time. See you then for reports from all of the matches as the next 2010 WSOP bracelet winner is determined.
