2023 WSOP Bracelet Winners Round-Up

The 2023  World Series of Poker (WSOP) is underway and, already, there have been thrills, spills, and bracelets won. 

With so many events taking place in a short space of time, Bally’s and Paris on the Las Vegas strip have been humming with activity since May 30. As ever, the great and the good of poker are in town. Topping the list of standout performers so far at this year’s WSOP is Chad Eveslage.

The American pro had more than $7 million in live cashes before the 2023 WSOP. Among those cashes were five WPT wins, including one at the 2022 Five Diamond World Poker Classic in Las Vegas. Eveslage’s record also included a WSOP Circuit ring and a WSOP bracelet. 

Now, after a strong opening week at the 2023 Series, Eveslage has three bracelets. The man from Indiana beat 455 players to win the $1,500 dealer’s choice event for $131,879. With one dealer’s choice bracelet in the bag, he proved his dexterity once again, this time in the $10,000 equivalent. 

There were 115 players who anted up in the Dealer’s Choice Championship but, as he did the $1,500 event, Eveslage emerged victorious. His second bracelet of the series was worth $311,428. That means he’s up $443,307 since the start of the WSOP. Not only that, he’s the first person to win two bracelets in 2023. 

The WSOP’s Million-Dollar Men 

Also leaving their marks on the 2023 World Series of Poker in recent days were Tyler Brown and Alexandre Vuilleumier. They were the first two players to break the seven-figure mark after putting in career-best performances. 

Brown beat a mammoth field of 18,188 entrants to win the $1,000 Mystery Millions event. He had $296,377 in live tournament cashes before winning Event No. 3, so he’s far from a novice. However, after coming through the masses on June 6, Brown’s $1 million win signaled his arrival on the pro scene.  

Vuilleumier was similarly impressive in the $25,000 High Roller 6-Max event. The Swiss poker player is an International Master in chess with a peak rating of 2,400. That background has certainly helped him learn the nuances of tournament poker. 

Why? Because Vuilleumier only started playing poker tournaments in January 2022. Since then, he’s finished third in the EPT London main event and won a $10,150 6-max at PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. He completed his meteoric rise last Thursday by winning one of the WSOP’s toughest events. 

The $25,000 6-max attracted more than 200 top pros, including runner-up Chance Kornuth. Despite being surrounded by vastly more experienced players, Vuilleumier remained resolute. Drawing on his chess background, he remained focused for three days to secure his first bracelet and biggest payday to-date.

WSOP Event No. 11 $600 NLHE Deepstack 6,085 Kenneth O'Donnell $351,098

 

Another player making the headlines in recent days is Nick Schulman. The American pro picked up his fourth WSOP bracelet after topping a field of 360 entrants in Event No. 9. Schulman has been grinding the circuit since 2005, and today, he has more than $15 million in tournament earnings. 

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Schulman’s latest bracelet is that it was in a different discipline to the others he’s won. While most players have their successes in Hold’em, Schulman now has WSOP bracelets in Stud, 2-7 Lowball, and Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.
