Former PPC winner Matthew Ashton of England is second in chips, while Daniel Negreanu sits fifth.

— Romania’s Alexandru Papazian and Kilian Kramer from Germany are heads-up for the bracelet and $888,888 first prize in the $888 buy-in “Crazy Eights” No-limit Hold ’em event. Papazian holds a 3½-to-1 chip advantage after the two agreed to pause the action early Wednesday.

— Player of the Year candidate Ryan Hughes is third in chips with 20 players remaining in the $1,000 No-limit Hold ’em event. Also alive is John Monnette, who currently sits seventh in the POY standings, four spots below Hughes.

— Ryan Laplante bagged the chip for the second straight day and is looking to go wire-to-wire in the $1,500 buy-in Mixed No-limit Hold ’em/Pot-limit Omaha event. Las Vegas resident Shannon Shorr is fourth with 16 players left after having less than one big blind at one point on Day 2.

— Poker pro Dylan Linde of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, leads the final 27 players in the $1,000 buy-in No-limit Hold’em turbo event. Linde won the WSOP Circuit Main Event in Hammond, Indiana, last October for nearly $350,000.
