Top 3 Countries With The Most Bracelet Wins in WSOP History
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) recently confirmed that the live poker festival is finally happening this fall, after taking a break for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The hunt for WSOP gold bracelets continues at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from September 30 to November 23.
The WSOP gold bracelet is one of poker’s most highly-coveted trinkets. While a bracelet does not necessarily define how good you are as a player, a poker resume seems “incomplete” without it.
Let’s take a look at the top 3 countries and players recording the most bracelet wins throughout the festival’s long history.
3. England (53 Bracelets)
England has so far recorded a total of 53 bracelet wins. Benny Glaser from Southampton currently holds the most number of bracelets in his home country with 3.
He won his first one back in 2015, and then added two more the following year. Barny Boatman follows Glaser with two bracelets.
Among prominent English pros who are bracelet holders include Liv Boeree (1), Chris Moorman (1), and Stephen Chidwick (1).

2. Canada (66 Bracelets)
Canada currently ranks second in the list of countries winning the highest number of gold bracelets with 66. Poker legend Daniel Negreanu leads the pack in his home country with a total of 6 bracelets. He also presently occupies the 9th spot in the all-time gold list.
Negreanu’s first WSOP victory came in 1998 when he won a $2K PLO Hold’em tournament.
He added three more in 2003, 2004, and 2008. The most remarkable year in his WSOP journey was in 2013, during which he won the $10K NLHE Main Event in Vegas and followed it up with a victory in a €25K High Roller tournament at WSOP Europe.
Kristen Bicknell follows him in second place with 3. Daniel Dvoress, Jonathan Duhamel and Timothy Adams each have one bracelet.

1. USA (1,170 Bracelets)
No surprises for guess that the U.S tops the list of most number of WSOP bracelets. Phil Hellmuth currently holds the record for most WSOP bracelet wins with 15 and for some considered The G.O.A.T. He won his maiden bracelet during the 1989 $10,000 NLHE World Championship. In 1993, he achieved a major feat when he won three bracelets, becoming just the second player to do so (the first was Walter “Puggy” Pearson in 1973).
Other American poker legends with multiple bracelets are Johnny Chan & Phil Ivey (10), Doyle Brunson & Johnny Moss (9).
