There are just 36 players in history to have won five or more World Series of Poker bracelets. Of those three dozen legends of the game, just five have managed to secure double-digit wins at the WSOP, with the latest being Erik Seidel.

With his tenth bracelet win earned at the inaugural WSOP Paradise this month, Seidel joined all-time bracelet leader Phil Hellmuth as the only player with ten or more WSOP titles to have won one in the past nine years. Phil Ivey’s tenth win came back in 2014, while both Johnny Chan and the late Doyle Brunson’s most recent wins at the series took place back in 2005.

The most recent players on this illustrious list to add to their bracelet collections are among the six-time and five-time winners. Josh Arieh, Shaun Deeb, Brian Rast, Jeremy Ausmus, Jason Mercier, Brian Hastings, Brian Yoon, Benny Glaser, Eli Elezra, John Monnette, and Adam Friedman have all won at least one bracelet in the past two years.

Deeb has won the most bracelets in the past decade, with all six of his victories coming in 2015 or later. Glaser, Hastings, and Ausmus have all secured five bracelets in the same span.

2023 will have seen the most bracelets ever awarded in a single year, with 234 handed out across several live and online festivals. That represents more than twice as many bracelet events as were held in 2019, and more than three times as many as in 2016. With more and more bracelets up for grabs each year, who knows how high the final bracelet counts might climb for some of the game’s top players before they call it a career. ♠
