Look, we get it. The United States of America has a pretty strong home-court advantage when it comes to putting up stats at the World Series of Poker. The fact is that the vast majority of all bracelets ever awarded have come on American soil, in events with predominantly American players.

Players from the USA have won over 19 times as many bracelets as players from any other nation, with neighboring Canada being the closest competition. In fact, all-time bracelet leader Phil Hellmuth contributes enough wins on his own to tie Ukraine for 11th on this leaderboard. Every player with seven or more bracelets won is American, and of the nine six-time winners at the series, seven are from the US. The other two are Canada’s Daniel Negreanu and Australia’s Jeffrey Lisandro.

Canada boasts 10 multi-bracelet winners overall, including three-time winner Kristen Foxen, who sits in a four-way tie for the most bracelets won by a female player. Chanracy Khun and Stephen Nahm are two Canadian players that have won this year to add to their country’s totals. Khun took down the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship, while Nahm won a $1,000 pot-limit Omaha tournament.

The United Kingdom has 63 victories at the series, with nine multi-bracelet winners. The leading winner from the UK is mixed-games master Benny Glaser, who has four bracelets to his name. Fourth-ranked Germany is led by fellow four-time bracelet winner George Danzer, with three-time champ Dominik Nitsche hot on his heels. Germany’s total grew by one when 22-year-old online star Leon Sturm took down this year’s $50,000 High Roller event for his first bracelet.

Ninth-ranked Brazil has also been able to add a win this summer, with Rafael Reis as the last man standing in the $1,500 six-max no-limit event to bring his nation’s total to 22.
