New WSOP bracelet winners 

There are a couple of accomplished players who have already added bracelets to their poker resumes this weekend.

In NJ/NV, Israeli Ori “try2trick” Hasson won his first WSOP bracelet on Saturday in a $400 No-Limit Hold’em event that attracted 474 entrants with 281 rebuys. Hasson, who is approaching 50 WSOP cashes, won $58,491. He has $365K in WSOP cashes in total.

In Pennsylvania, Richard “EatMushrooms” Ali won his first bracelet in the $500 No-Limit Hold’em event on Sunday that brought in 149 players who rebought 49 times. Ali won $20,715. He owns three WSOP circuit rings, all won online within the last year.

Ali’s first WSOP cash came in a live event in 2016, and if he continues his online dominance on in Pennsylvania, he’ll most likely pass $400K in WSOP cashes before the year is out.

His account has only been active since August 2021, but according to Sharkscope, he’s already pulled more than $100K from the site in 296 tournaments.

Drew “dudeguydrew” O’Connell picked up his second WSOP bracelet on Sunday by winning the $3,200 high-roller event in NJ/NV for $96K. The event attracted 99 players. O’Connell won his first bracelet last August in the $1,000 championship.

“Rvrruner” was the winner of the $500 bracelet event on Sunday in the combined NJ/NV market. He collected $64,590 in the event, which attracted 508 players and 214 rebuys.

In Michigan, “Full_send” finished on top of a field of 140 (34 rebuys) for a bracelet and $18,204.
