Players to watch:
— Two-time bracelet winner Paul Volpe is in sixth place with 233 players remaining in the $1,500 buy-in “Monster Stack” No-limit Hold ’em event. Scott Baumstein of New York has the chip lead, while 2015 Main Event champ Joe McKeehen, former “November Niner” Scott Montgomery and 10-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Maurice Hawkins open play with top-50 stacks.
— Professional poker player David “Chino” Rheem of Los Angeles leads the final 19 players in the $3,000 buy-in Six-handed Pot-limit Omaha event. Rheem has three World Poker Tour titles and more than $2.5 million in lifetime WSOP earnings but is yet to win a bracelet.
— Circuit grinder Will Berry of Norman, Oklahoma, has the chip lead with 264 players left in the $1,500 buy-in Bounty No-limit Hold ’em tournament. Two-time bracelet winner Brandon Cantu is close behind in second place.
— Raymond Henson of Houston, who leads the WSOP Player of the Year race, has a top-10 stack in the $10,000 buy-in Pot-limit Omaha Hi-Low/8 or Better Championship. Italian pro Dario Sammartino has a commanding chip lead, as 116 players remain.
— Professional poker player Christopher Vitch of Phoenix overcame a star-studded final table to win the $10,000 buy-in Seven-card Stud Hi-Low/8 or Better Championship ($320,193) for his second career bracelet. Vitch, 34, emerged victorious after a four-hour heads-up duel with English pro Benny Glaser.
Massive disappointment: PAIN! Chip leader 14 left, finished 9th (not even an official final table!). Had bad run outs, misplayed one hand
