In the other semifinal, Great Britain’s Charlie Carrel meets Adrian Mateos of Spain in a battle of young European phenoms.

— Kyle Loman leads the way in the $1,500 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. event with 18 players remaining. A number of former bracelet winners are still standing, including Max Pescatori, David “Bakes” Baker, David Singer, Richard Ashby and Brandon Shack-Harris.

— Professional poker player Matt Berkey of Las Vegas returns for the second day of the $1,500 Six-handed No-limit Hold ’em event with one of the largest stacks in the field. Dustin Bush owns the overall lead with 263 of the 1,748 entrants remaining.

Thursday’s highlights:

— David “Dragon” Pham of Cerritos, California, won the $1,500 buy-in No-limit Hold’em event ($391,960) for his third career bracelet. Pham now has more than $2.2 million in career WSOP earnings.

— Frank Kassela of Las Vegas won the $1,500 buy-in No-limit 2-7 Lowball Draw event ($89,151) for his third career bracelet. Bernard Lee finished second.

Quotable:

“Generally speaking, when it comes down to being a recreational player, I consider myself one of the best recreational players in the world. I have no idea what I could do if I hopped on that train and played all year long, but I’m sure I’d have a lot more tournament success than just showing up here six weeks every summer.” — Kassela, on his latest WSOP win.
