Incredible WSOP Winners in 2021
So, which poker pros deserve some recognition for their amazing achievements this year?
The 61-years-old player is one of the most successful pros in history – which landed him a spot in the Poker Hall of Fame back in 2010. Seidel participated in the 11th WSOP event, which had a 624-player pool. Seidel managed to beat them one by one until he had only one opponent left: Francisco Benitez.
And after an intense poker session, Seidel managed to assert his dominance. He won an astounding prize of $977,842, increasing his poker earnings to $37,870,375. This amount safely secures him a spot on the "All-Time Money List", which is a spectacular place to be.
But that's not the only impressive thing about Seidel's win! This is the 9th WSOP bracelet the poker pro earned, a record only a few players managed to break. If he manages to acquire another bracelet in the future, he will be tied with poker legends like Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan, and Doyle Brunson.
The up-and-coming poker pro might not have an impressive list of wins under his belt, but his latest win proves Bruschi means business.
The 14th WSOP event had 2,639 entries, which meant that players had to fight hard for a spot at the final table. And even though the competition was fierce, Renan managed to surpass most opponents and ended up in a heads-up match against Leonid Bilokur.
After an exciting poker session, Bruschi walked away with his first gold bracelet and a $150,327 cash prize.
That raises Bruschi's overall earnings to over $400,000, which is rather impressive for such a young poker player. Who knows? Maybe the Brazilian pro will surprise us even more in upcoming events and tournaments.
More Fun is on the Horizon for WSOP Fans!
The first WSOP event took place back in the 70s' when apparently, there were less than 100 poker tables in all of Nevada. In the first WSOP event ever, only 30 players competed in a fun and expectation-free game.
And here we are today, only a few decades later, hundreds of thousands of players either join the tournament online or travel far to enjoy the live event.
This year, poker enthusiasts will be able to compete for a golden bracelet in more than 100 separate events.
Between July 1 and August 1, players will be able to enjoy 33 online competitions, trying to win a gold bracelet in the process.
Later in the season (between September 30 and November 23), players will have a chance to join any of the 88 regular events. That is, as long as there won't be any new COVID restrictions to stop the games from taking place.
And lastly, the main WSOP events will start on November 4, 2021, and will last until November 17.
