World Series of Poker (WSOP) seems to have a moniker attached to it every year like “The Year of the Pro.”, “The Year of the Young Guns” and “The Year of the Online Player.”
So, how the 2017 WSOP stays apart from this, for this year poker the moniker is “Year of the Old Timers.”
We this moniker we are not trying to call the players old at all. It will be fair to say, that they have been around the block once or twice. They come to the WSOP every year and after then get to business. This year their ethic of work is rewarding them.
After awarding the 46 bracelet out of 74 totals here are the stand of some of the notable “old timers”.
Two bracelets won by David Bach
The player has eight cashes, and it includes the $10K events three final tables, presently he is sitting fourth on the leader board POY.
Frank Kassela and David Pham “The Dragon” both claimed one bracelet and three other cashes
On the other hand the player David Singer won second bracelet of his career.
On the other hand, Mike Matusow has three final tables of events of $10K and he missed one very narrowly.
Phil Hellmuth had one final table and five cashes and he too narrowly missed the One Drop final table.
Coming to Barry Greenstein, then he has eight cashes in the event. So far, only 46 bracelets have been awarded and there is enough poker present for every player in WSOP. For the serious poker players, what matters more than money is the bracelet and this is the reason that almost all serious poker pros come to this event every year. This year as well, the legacy has been continued.
