In the last mixed game championship event of the summer, all of the big names came out to test their luck on the opening day of Event #64: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship, which drew 133 runners. Heading into Day 2, Chris Vitch leads a stacked field after bagging 279,500 chips to top the remaining 63 players.

Vitch came into the day looking to defend his title as the winner of this very event last year. He defeated 125 players then but will have a bit more competition this time around. Having won a World Series of Poker gold bracelet in the last two years, Vitch is looking to join Matt Matros and Loren Klein as the only players to win a bracelet in three straight years. As a mixed game specialist, Vitch has earned over $1.3 million in career tournament earnings and will be looking to add to that over the course of the next two days.

Some other big stacks following in Vitch's footsteps are Daham Wang who threw 276,500 in the bag, a mere 3,000 chips off the lead. Stuart Rutter ran up a stack of 236,000 to finish in the top three, while Terrence Hastoo (220,000) and Ryan Miller (207,500) round out the top five stacks.

The afternoon began with just 33 players taking their seats with a starting stack of 50,000 chips. Daniel Negreanu (76,500) was one of the first in his seat and remained there throughout the day. Negreanu added bits and pieces to his stack as the day went on until he nailed one big pot in the last level of the night. Negreanu entered a pot five ways and the action was capped on fourth street. By sixth street, the action was down to heads-up with Matt Glantz and Negreanu tabled two pair at showdown. That was good enough to earn him a healthy pot and put him back into contention, despite trailing off late.

Some other familiar faces to go wire-to-wire include David Benyamine (166,500), Jesse Martin (158,500),Eric Rodawig (79,500), and Mike Sexton (72,000). The entries continued to pile in as the day wore on with a total of 133 players making their way into the tournament.

The field was full of past bracelet winners and some of those moving on include Tom Koral (189,000), Scott Bohlman (156,000), Max Pescatori (85,500), Adam Friedman (79,000), James Obst (68,000), and Robert Mizrachi (35,500).

It wasn't a good day for all the players as over half of the field hit the rail over the first ten levels. Eli Elezra, Esther Taylor, Frank Kassela, Scott Seiver, Brandon Shack-Harris, Erik Seidel, Allen Kessler, Mike Matusow, John Hennigan, Jeff Lisandro, and Brian Hastings were among those eliminated.

With late registration staying open until the beginning of Day 2, the field is expected to add a few more entries. The action will resume tomorrow at 2pm local time on level 11 with the limits at 4,000/8,000. The prizepool and payouts will be announced once late registration closes and be posted shortly after.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on site to bring you all of the action throughout each and every event during the WSOP.

"Do you have three tens?" Koral asked.

"I have queens up," Rosario said, showing {Q-}{Q-}. Koral had her beat though. He showed his {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and that would earn him half the pot. Fricke and Koral chopped up Rosario's bets and she was left with just over 40,000 chips.

On seventh, Glaser checked. Vitch bet and Glaser thought for a good while before folding. Vitch showed down his {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for a straight and a low and that left Leah sweating his final card. It wasn't a good one as he threw up the {Q-Hearts} and his hand was mucked quickly after that as he was eliminated from the tournament.
