The 2018 World Series of Poker at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas features 78 bracelet events with buy-ins ranging from $365 to $1 million. We compiled a list of 2018 bracelet winners, which will be updated daily. There will be multiple High Roller events in the $100K, $50K, and $25K range. In addition to the Big One for One Drop with a price tag of a cool million. There's also the Little One for One Drop and your favorite branded events like the GIANT, MILLY MAKER, COLOSSUS, and the MARATHON. Oh, and how could we forget the big kahuna of them all... the $10,000 buy-in Main Event Championship! And yes, Phil Hellmuth would go on to win his 15th bracelet.

Will Phil Hellmuth win another bracelet to pad his stats? Is this the year Kid Poker breaks through with multiple wins? Will Phil Ivey return to his glory days and win a few more pieces of bling? Will the Germans continue to dominate High Roller affairs? Will one of the red-hot, sizzling players amidst a mega-rush (e.g. Jason Koon and Justin Bonomo) win a bracelet? Or more? Those are some of the many potential storylines at the 2018 World Series of Poker.

The 49th running of the WSOP will take place at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. Click here for a comprehensive weekly breakdown of the 2018 WSOP Schedule.

Elio Fox made waves in the first weekend of action when he won the inaugural $10,000 NL Super Turbo Bounty. The first-time event attracted 243 players and Fox outlasted all of them to win his second-career bracelet.
