2010 wsopWhen it comes to large field tournaments, it’s unusual for a number of top pros to weave their way through the tournament and be in contention near the end, but this is exactly what has happened in the $1,500 Omaha 8 or better tournament at the 2010 World Series of Poker.

Among the remaining 26 players vying for the coveted WSOP bracelet, not to mention the 6-figure payday, are Dan Heimiller, Shawn Buchanan, Jeff Madsen, Ylon Schwartz, David Bach, and Huck Seed.

* Buchanan, who has a WPT title and almost $2.5 million in tournament earnings, is looking for his 1st WSOP bracelet.

* Long-time pro Heimiller will be looking for his 2nd bracelet, the first coming back in 2002.

* Schwartz is best known for his final table appearance, and 4th place finish, in the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

* Jeff Madsen, always a fan favorite, will be looking to continue his success in 2010, already having won the Borgata Winter Open worth over $600k. Madsen won back-to-back WSOP bracelets in 2006, and would love to add #3 to his resume.

* Bach captured last year’s Players Championship, and has been a WSOP staple over the past few years, and has racked up quite a few 6-figure scores in the process.

* Huck Seed is likely the best known player left in the field; the 1996 Main Event champion –Seed finished 6th in the Main Event the following year– currently has 4 bracelets, and has become known for his incredible Heads-Up play at the NBC Heads-Up Championships where he has finished 1st, 3rd and 3rd in the 5 years the tournament has been around.
