Canadian Players Have Won Eight Bracelets Through 38 EventsPublished on June 24th, 2013 2:03 am EST
Prior to the 2013 World Series of Poker, the record for the most number of bracelets won by a non-US country at a WSOP was seven.
Canadian players at this year's World Series of Poker have topped that record, as they have managed to take down eight bracelets through the first 38 events of this year's WSOP.
Justin Oliver was the most recent Canadian winner of a World Series of Poker bracelet after he took down Event #38 ($2,500 No Limit Hold'em Four-Handed) for $309,071.
Let's take a look at the bracelets that Canadian-born players have won at this year's World Series of Poker so far:
Event #3: $1,000 No Limit Hold'em Re-Entry
Event #6: "Millionaire Maker" NLHE
Event #8 - $2,500 Eight Game Mix
Event #11 - $2,500 No Limit Hold'em
Event #16 - $10,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold'em
Event #20: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better
Saint-Georges Est, Quebec
Event #28: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em
Event #38: $2,500 No Limit Hold'em / Four-Handed
When you include Daniel Negreanu's win in the WSOP APAC main event, this has definitely been a year to remember for Canadian-born players in World Series of Poker events.
