This is what they're playing for...
It is considered the most coveted, non-monetary prize in poker - the WSOP bracelet! Since 1976, a bracelet has been awarded to the winner of every event at the annual World Series of Poker. In the early years only a few were handed out. In 1990, 14 bracelets were won. By 2000, that number jumped to 24. In 2014, there were 65 bracelet events at the RIO. Bracelets are also handed out at the World Series of Poker Europe, the WSOP National Championship and the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific.
Did you know?
Johnny Chan is the last player to win back-to-back WSOP main events, a feat many think will never be duplicated because of the large & talented tournament fields these days. Jerry Buss, who was an avid poker player and owner of the LA Lakers, promised Chan an NBA championship ring if he could win three in a row. Chan tried! The 'Oriental Express' was dethroned of his three-peat effort when he lost heads-up to Phil Hellmuth in 1989. He was that close to three straight!
Tidbit: Chan is known for keeping a "lucky" orange in front of him on the table, an effort to keep the smell of cigarette smoke away.
