WSOP Players and Champions

The biggest poker tournament on the planet, the World Series of Poker has crowned a number of champions. WSOP players hail from all sorts of backgrounds, from expert pros who have already amassed an impressive bankroll, to amateurs who have made their mark simply by competing in this prestigious tournament. Here are some of the more notable players to have stormed the tournament to success, most of whom have been granted a place in the Series’ hall of fame.

Daniel Negreanu – Poker legend Daniel ‘Kid Poker’ Negreanu is perhaps one of the most well known poker players today who continually walks away in the money. The WSOP is no exception – in 2004, Negreanu bagged a coveted WSOP bracelet, made the final table in five events and finished in the money in six tournaments.

Erik Seidel – This Las Vegas native was crowned the WSOP champion on no less than eight occasions before being signed into the Series’ hall of fame. In terms of WSOP players, Seidel is certainly up there with the best of them. At that point, his WSOP scorecard boasted an impressive 60 money finishes.

Mike Sexton – Sexton, who hails from Indiana, bagged a WSOP bracelet back in 1989 and has bagged over 40 tournament cashes. This player’s WSOP earnings reached a total of over $910,000 upon being signed up into the WSOP hall of fame.

Phil Hellmuth – Hellmuth had earned a total of 11 WSOP bracelets when he was signed into the WSOP hall of fame, and walked away in the money in 84 occasions. His highest win came in 1989 when, after storming the Main Event, he walked away $755,000 richer. It’s no wonder this WSOP player’s nickname is ‘The Poker Brat’.
