I am happy to say I will not spend more time on VMware Player. I did work around the bridged network problem by creating a wrapper script for vmnet-bridge but later I have problems installing VMware tools. The VMware nowadays is not that VMware ten years ago. Using VMware is simply causing me endless troubles and benefiting negligible performance gain.

Qemu or VirtualBox is the solution.

Like you, I have all three virtualization applications. And all of them are running Slackware64-current so that I can compare QEMU, VirtualBox and VMplayer. While there are more CPU flags present with VMplayer such as SSE4.2, benchmarks that I have run reveal that VirtualBox matches VMplayer in every metric that interests me (I don't do games). The flexibility of QEMU is also very appealing to me since I can experiment with different hardware. I do keep VMplayer around on my system but since its hood is welded shut, it doesn't have the hack value of the other two.

JMHO and YMMV.
