HOT !

At the 2016 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, there will be 69 events and 69 bracelets awarded. A couple of new events were added to the 2016 schedule in addition to your favorite events such as the $10,000 buy-in Main Event Championship and the $50,000 Players Championship. In addition, the 2016 WSOP include populist events such as the $565 buy-in Colossus II, the $1,500 Milly Maker, a special $888 buy-in event sponsored by 888poker, along with several OG donkaments. We compiled a complete list of 2016 WSOP bracelet winners that will be updated daily.

2016 WSOP Bracelet winners

Would front-running Phil Hellmuth win more? Will Phil Ivey play events just to win prop bets? Will one of the European young guns like Fedor Holz or Dzmitry Urbanovich ship their first bracelet? Can your favorite pro win another? Or will your favorite pro who has never won a bracelet finally get the recognition they deserve? Or is this the year that we get to see the emergence of the next up and coming superstar?

Out of the first baker's dozen worth of bracelets, only one non-America won a bracelet – Sweden's Peter Eichhardt. Robert Mizrachi made history by winning bracelets in three consecutive years (joining his brother). Majority of the winners in the first week won their first-ever bracelet, while Mizrachi, Ian Johns, and Rep Porter added another bracelet to their collection.

Through the first 13 events, three were tagged as Championship caliber events with a $10,000 buy-in... Stud, NL Heads-Up, and Dealer's Choice. Those top-tier events were snagged by Robert Mizrachi, Alan Percal, and Jean Gaspard.

In the second full week of action, Jason Mercier shipped his first bracelet of the series for his fourth overall after winning the Lowball Championship. Mercier has a prop bet with Vanessa Selbst worth $1.8 million if he could win three bracelets at this year's WSOP. He got heads-up for a second bracelet in Event #20 Razz Championship, but he busted in second pace when Ray Dehkharghani won his first bracelet instead. Alas, Mercier's sick run continued and he capped off one of the hottest weeks in recent memory by winning another bracelet for his fifth overall and second of the 2016 WSOP. Mercier binked the 10K HORSE Championship. If you're keeping score at home...during one week during three 10K championships... Mercier finished in first, second, and first. As far as the prop bet goes, Mercier is 2/3 of the way there.

Through nearly 30 events, Americans won all but three bracelets. Two more non-Americans earned bracelets by the end of the third week of action. Cesar Garcia won Spain's first bracelet this year in Event #23 $2K NL and Benny Glasser won his second-career bracelet and the first bling for the U.K. this summer after winning an O8 event.

Ian Johns from Seattle became the second player at the 2016 WSOP to win double bracelets. He shipped Event #8 $1,500 HORSE during the first week of action and he also took down $10K Limit Hold'em Championship. Ian Johns won over $500K combined for both of his bracelet wins. Jason Mercier is the only other player aside from Ian Johns to win two bracelets at the 2016 WSOP.

Benny Glasser from the U.K. became the third player to win a double bracelet at the 2016 WSOP. He won back-to-back Omaha 8 events by winning Event #26 $1,500 O8 and shipping Event #32 $10,000 Omaha 8 Championship.

George Danzer won his fourth bracelet which put him in a tie with Max Pescatori for most wins by a European. Johnny World Hennigan also won his fourth-career bracelet when he took down the 10K Lowball Championship.

The 2013 WSOP Ladies Champion Kristen Bicknell became the first woman to win a bracelet at the 2016 WSOP. She also became the first Canadian to win one as well. The win in the BOUNTY event marked her second-career bracelet. Justthe next day, Safiya Umerova from Los Angeles became the second woman to win a bracelet in an open event at the 2016 WSOP.

As the series approached the final stretch, Shaun Deeb picked up another bracelet along with Allan Le, who became the first Le brother to win bling. Lucky Chewy finially won his first bracelet.

Nail salon owner Hung Le won the Crazy Eights bracelet and $888,888 in cash.

Brian Rast faded a field of 91 runners to win the $50K Poker Players Championship. Rast won his third bracelet, nearly $1.3M in cash, and the prestigious Chip Reese Memorial Trophy .

Tony Dunst won his first bracelet during the last weekend of action before the Main Event.

Courtney Kennedy, a poker dealer from Detroit, won the Ladies Championship and became the third woman to win a bracelet this summer.

Fedor Holz shipped his first bracelet in the last week of the WSOP. Holz faded a field of 183 high rollers and took down the One Drop High Roller for a $5 million score.

Here's a running list of 2016 bracelet winners that we will be updating throughout the duration of the WSOP, so bookmark this page for future reference...
