The first World Series of Poker win for a seasoned pro.Earlier this week, Stephen Chidwick took down the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller tournament at the World Series of Poker for $1,618,417.

After Chidwick took down the event, many people were surprised to learn that it was the first WSOP bracelet of his career.

As a result, Chidwick is officially removed from the "best players to have won won a World Series of Poker bracelet" list.

After all, Chidwick had well over $20 million in total lifetime live tournament cashes heading into the $25k PLO High Roller, as well as an additional $5 million in earnings online.

Heading into the PLO High Roller, Chidwick had five cashes of more than a million dollars in his live tournament career, including a $1.512 million cash in the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl.

In addition, Chidwick has a long string of wins over the course of his career, including multiple victories in $25k Pokerstars Championship events.

The World Series of Poker win, however, proved elusive to Chidwick until earlier this week, when he was finally able to take one down. Chidwick is generally regarded as one of the very best live players in the world (he is a regular on the Super High Roller circuit), and his bracelet was long overdue.
