Three more events at the WSOP.com, and three more winners at the 2020 World Series of Poker Online. Two noobs joined the bracelet club with their first-ever victories, while Nick Binger finally broke through to join the multi-winners club with his second bracelet victory. It took nine years, but Binger finally added another bracelet to his collection. Back in 2011, Binger shipped a $5K PLO8 event for nearly $400K and his first bracelet. Now, Binger has one for each wrist.
