Champions of a World series of poker of WSOP


Before start of an anniversary, 50th series of most of all champion bracelets in Phil Helmut's asset, and Antonio Esfandiari already took away from Las Vegas more than $21 million on Tuesday, May 28, in Las Vegas the main event of year for all pokerist of the planet — a World series of poker of WSOP starts. This year a series celebrates anniversary — it will pass for the 50th time. Within one and a half months (till July 16) champion bracelets in 88 tournaments on all kinds of poker will be played, and in Main Event WSOP the new world champion will be defined! By the way, 41 final tables are planned to be sent live on CBS channel and in PokerGo service! For the rich history a World series made legends hundreds of players, and before start of new competitions we will tell about the most outstanding of them. American Phil Helmut keeps superiority in two nominations at once. On its account of most of all champion bracelets — 15 (among them there is one bracelet of the world champion), and it is more often than others got to prize-winning zones of the WSOP tournaments — 133 times! On 10 trophies Doyle Branson and Phil Ivy have in the asset, and Johnny Chong and Johnny Moss on 9 victories in tournaments have series. The most successful woman in the history of a series at the moment is Vanessa Selbst who earned more than $2.2 million in the WSOP tournaments. However, now Vanessa departed from poker, and, perhaps, in the nearest future someone will surpass her result. Among men on prize-winning on WSOP out of competition Antonio Esfandiari who already took away from Vegas more than $21 million prize-winning. The lion's share was made here by a victory in the Big One for One Drop tournament which at once brought to the American $18 million! On the second place in this list there is Danijel Colman ($17.4 million), and closes the three Danielle Negreana ($16.3 million). By the way, this year many tournaments in WSOP so in case of success it can bypass Colman and, perhaps promise to win back Negreana, even to gain the lead the list. There are champion bracelets of WSOP and in collections of the Ukrainian players. Twice Alexey Kovalchuk became the best on a World series, and one trophy was taken away by Evgeny Kachalov. As for the main event of a series then Ukrainians went beyond a final table twice. In 2011 in top-9 there passed Anton Makiyevsky, and last year behind "finalka" Artyom Metalidi played. Both as a result finished the eighth. Perhaps, someone from our pokerist will become famous on the future series. Let's watch results of Ukrainians in poker Mecca. Good luck!
