Bracelets since the boom (WSOP)
I thought it would be interesting to take a look at which players have had staying power since starting fields started to rise(2004-present). This list includes WSOP
-Europe and Asia.
Phil Ivey - 6
Jeff Lisandro - 6
Jason Mercier - 5
Phil Hellmuth - 5
Daniel Alaei - 5
Daniel Negreanu - 4
Jeff Madsen - 4
Robert Mizrachi - 4
Max Pescatori - 4
Tom Schneider - 4
21 players tied with 3
Doyle Brunson - 1
Johnny Chan - 1
Eric Seidel - 2
Mike Matusow - 2
Does this change your opinion on anyone? Is Mercier the best Tournament player in the World or is he just on a heater?
Phil Ivey has 6 bracelets in 6 different disciplines. His 10 career bracelets have come in 9 formats, none were NLHE.
Jason Mercier's 5 bracelets have also come from 5 different formats.
Mercier and Ivey both have 5 since 2009.
Mizrachi has won a bracelet in three consecutive years. Matt Matros and Michael Mizrachi were the most recent to accomplish this feat from 2010-2012.
Benny Glaser is tied with Mercier for the most bracelets over the last two years (3) and I had no idea who he was before today.
