Event #16: MILLIONAIRE MAKER $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em: Updates
Under a hundred players are left to go after the top prize of a million bucks. In the top 10 in chips right now are Olivier Busquet, Andrew Lichtenberger and Steve Gross. Mike Sexton, Erick Lidngren and Hoyt Corkins are all still alive, as well.
Event #17: $10,000 Razz Championship: Updates
There are just 12 left in this one, with play resuming at 2 p.m. It’s an amazing group, as more than half the players left have bracelets already.

Event #18: $1,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold’em: Updates
From an initial starting field of nearly 1,800 entries, just 29 remain in the second turbo event of this WSOP — a tournament with fast blind structures. The top two in chips — Gregory Kolo and John Gale — are in search of their second bracelets.

Event #19: $3,000 Limit Hold’em 6-Handed: Updates
November Niner Jorryt van Hoof and bracelet winners Daniel Idema and Chris Tryba are near the chip lead after day 1.
