Day 1 of Event #73: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship has concluded.
This first day of this championship event drew 136 entries with 80 returning for the penultimate day on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. local time (PST). Expect that number to rise slightly as late registration is open until the start of Day 2.
The first day of this championship event played as expected, with many notables bagging and tagging up for Day 2.
Leading this star-laced field is Gary Benson who bagged up 331,000 chips and will look to use that ammunition to position himself at the finale of this championship event.
End of Day 1 Top 10 Chip Counts

|5||Shaun Deeb||United States||256,000|
|6||Scott Seiver||United States||256,000|
|9||Brett Richey||United States||187,500|
Still in the hunt and always a factor is bracelet owners Shaun Deeb, Erik Seidel, Brandon Shack-Harris, and Yuval Bronshtein. These players will each be looking to secure a spot at this WSOP championship final table in search of that coveted gold bracelet along with the first-place cash.
Those that were not as fortunate include Daniel Negreanu, Allen Kessler, Phil Hellmuth, Felipe Ramos, and John Esposito who all hit the rail before the day’s end.
The players will return for Day 2 on Sunday afternoon to play seven 90-minute levels with a ten-minute break at the end of each level, and a 60-minute dinner break at the end of Level 14 (~8:30 p.m.).

Please stay tuned to PokerNews for a recap of the day's events coming your way soon.
John Esposito: //
Brandon Shack-Harris: //
Benny Glaser: //
Gary Benson: //
With Esposito already all-in on fourth street and at-risk it was Shack-Harris that fired out a big bet on sixth street and was called by Glaser and Benson.
Seventh street Shack-Harris slowed down and Glaser checked. This prompted Benson to fire out a bet and both Shack-Harris and Glaser folded.
The hands were tabled and it was the two pairs of aces and tens held by Benson that pipped the two pairs of kings and treys held by Esposito, and the latter was eliminated from the tournament.
Josh Arieh: //
Sherry Hammers: //
Daham Wang: //
Sixth street saw Wang lead out and he was called by Arieh and Hammers.
Seventh street Wang slowed down and Arieh fired away and both Hammers and Wang called.
After all the debris had subsided, it was the trip treys held by Arieh that took down the high half, while Hammers won the low half with her eight-perfect.
