Thursday, June 16 2011 : Event 21: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship was drawing to an exciting close as midnight approached in Las Vegas Tuesday night, with Bertrand Grospellier locked in a tough heads up with Steve Landfish at level 23 on the third day of play.
 
Almost three hours into the heads up Grospellier looked to be in a strong position with a more than 2 million chip lead in the event, which attracted an original field of 126 and generated a prize pool of $1.18 million.
 
Earlier on the third day of the competition fourteen survivors returned to the tables, now all in the cash zone, and including John Hennigan, Chad Brown, Jason Mercier, Alexander Kostritsyn, Sorel Mizzi, Ville Wahlbeck, Nick Schulman and Men Nguyen.
