Players to watch:

— The team of Daniel Negreanu, Eric Wasserson, David Benyamine and Mark Gregorich owns the chip lead with six teams remaining in the $10,000 Tag Team event. Negreanu, one of the most recognizable faces in poker, is chasing his first gold bracelet since 2013 and seventh overall, which would tie him for seventh all time.

Several other notable players stand in Negreanu’s path, including 2014 Main Event winner Martin Jacobson and his teammate Mark Radoja. The duo of Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov enter the final day third in chips.

— Former “Survivor” contestant John-Robert Bellande is one of 50 players left in the $3,000 Shootout No-limit Hold ’em event. Barry Greenstein, Olivier Busquet and James Obst, who finished 13th in last year’s Main Event, were among the notable professionals to advance.

— Defending champion Benny Glaser of England will look to chip up in the $1,500 Omaha High/Low 8 or Better, as 254 of the 905 entrants remained. Rex Clinkscales of Las Vegas bagged the chip lead after Day 1, and actor James Woods was in 32nd place.

Thursday’s highlights:

— Bryan Hollis of Gaithersburg, Maryland, overcame a 3½-to-1 chip deficit during heads-up play to win the $565 buy-in Casino Employees No-limit Hold ’em event ($68,817) and his first career bracelet.

Quotable:

“I’ve never made it past the first break before. Last year I busted this tournament in seven hands.” — Hollis, on winning the Casino Employees event.
