The WSOP Non-Limit Texas Holdem Main Event 2010 features 7,319 players (4,973 of them are from the USA) who paid a $10K entry fee to participate in the great event with a staggering $68,798,600 prize fund.
A lot of poker legends have been eliminated on days 1 & 2: Doyle Brunson, Phil Helmuth, Chris Ferguson, Joe Hachem, Jamie Gold, Phil Ivey and many others. Some notable names still in the game are Chris Moneymaker, Daniel Negreanu, Allen Cunnigham and Johnny Chan.
Unfortunately, super grandmaster Alexander Grischuk (somehow not mentioned at the official website in the celebrity list) has also left the tournament on day 3. One of the critical hands for him went the following way: two players limped, Grischuk bet 11,500 with QQ. The big blind went all-in with 70,000; Grischuk called and saw only K6 suited. Then a king came...
After a couple more hands Grischuk (with only 25,000 chips left ) went all-in from the button. The big blind called with A10 vs Alexander's K6 suited and won when an ace came on the river.
