Raymond Henson, the current points leader in the 2017 WSOP Player of the Year race, returns. Also in the field are Chris Ferguson and Tyler Groth, who won his first bracelet two weeks ago.

— Professional poker player Jacob Bazeley, with more than $1.2 million in combined WSOP and Circuit earnings, is one of 29 players remaining in the $1,500 buy-in Bounty No-limit Hold ’em event. Harrison Gimbel of Jupiter, Florida, has the chip lead.

Quotable:

“Mike (Mizrachi) and I have been friends since ‘99. We started playing in the same underground clubs with Robert Mizrachi, Chino Rheem, Stuart Patterson … a lot of guys that have had a lot of success in poker. They’ve gone out and really crushed it on the tournament scene, and I’ve really just been along for the ride on the cash-game scene. They always push me to play tournaments.” — Calvo, who was being railed at the final table by several Florida pros
