In just over a month of World Series of Poker action at the Rio, five new players joined the list of four-time bracelet winners, growing the list to 56.

Those four-time winners included $10,000 limit hold’em champion John Monnette, $10,000 seven card stud and $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. champion Anthony Zinno, $10,000 Dealer’s Choice championship three-peater Adam Friedman, $10,000 no-limit deuce-to-seven lowball championship winner Farzad Bonyadi, and $10,000 six-max no-limit hold’em championship winner Ben Yu.

Three more who were already among the prestigious group added to their bracelet totals, including Phil Hellmuth extending his lead on the field by winning his sweet sixteenth. Brian Rast secured his fifth title at the series just days before Shaun Deeb joined him as just the 28th player in the history of poker to win five or more bracelets. (For more on Rast and Deeb’s wins, check out the WSOP recap on page 24).

In addition to the 56 players with four or more bracelets, there are another 58 players who have managed to earn three WSOP titles. Seven of those players won their bracelet in the 55 live events to wrap up so far at the 2021 series, including Michael Addamo, Josh Arieh, David ‘Bakes’ Baker, Kevin Gerhart, Chance Kornuth, Ryan Leng, and Bradley Ruben. There are still plenty of bracelets yet to be handed out in 2021, but it’s clear that this series has so far belonged to the pros and veterans of the game.
