Reminiscent of the Players Championship that just ended on Wednesday morning, every table was stacked for the start of event No. 10 ($10,000 seven-card stud world championship) at the 2010 World Series of Poker .Also reminiscent of the Players Championship, Michael Mizrachi tops the list as chip leader following an impressive performance on day 1. Finishing with the second most chips on day 1 is the runner-up to Mizrachi in the Players Championship, Vladimir Schmelev.Fresh off his bracelet win in the Players Championship, The Grinder hit hand after hand, admitting to his table at one point midway through the day that he hadn’t lost a pot yet.In one big hand Mizrachi called his opponent’s bets on each street, before he raised on fifth street. Seat 6 called and continued calling Mizrachi’s bets on every street until the last. After some consideration, seat 6 finally folded his hand to The Grinder, sending a huge pot Mizrachi’s way that sent him over the 100,000 mark.Mizrachi showed his down cards to prove he wasn’t bluffing: (K K ) 10 7 K Q (2 ) Seat 6: (X-X) Q A J 3 ( MUCK )The three kings pushed the Players Champion into the chip lead, but it wasn’t long after that he ran into three kings held by an opponent. How did Mizrachi answer…With three aces.In that hand, against Eugene Katchalov , Mizrachi looked to be in trouble against Katchalov’s kings, but The Grinder was running good, and he hit one of the two remaining aces to give himself three aces and boot Katchalov from the tournament. Their cards:Mizrachi: (A A ) 4 3 A 10 (2 ) Katchalov: (K K ) K 9 6 8 ( MUCK )Mizrachi ended the day with 191,900, a convincing chip lead much like he had after day 3 of the Players Championship. Oddly enough, Schmelev was second in chips with 180,000.But with a field so packed with stars there are plenty of scary-good players still nipping at their heals, including Daniel Negreanu , Doyle Brunson , Men Nguyen , Jennifer Harman , Chris Ferguson , and plenty more, including last year’s winner of this event , Freddie Ellis .There were a total of 150 players that entered this $10,000 world championship event, and that created a prize pool worth $1,410,000. The winner will walk away with $394,807 at the final table on Saturday, June 5. Sixty-two players busted on day 1, leaving 88 players that will still be in the hunt tomorrow.Check back with CardPlayer.com starting at 3 p.m. for live coverage of day 2 action.
