With the WSOP Main Event dominating last week’s schedule, there were only a handful of bracelets awarded. Still, history was made with Josh Arieh winning his fourth bracelet — and his second of the 2021 Series — and Georgios Sotiropoulos his third. It was Sotiropoulos’ first live WSOP win since 2015.
