Checking in at the WSOP

Checking in at the WSOP

The 2011 WSOP is now over two weeks old and 19 bracelets have been awarded, with players from the US, the UK, Canada, and Russia all striking gold with victories at the WSOP. Turnout has continued to be strong with some huge paydays for winners, topped by Allen Bari's win in Event #4 that was worth $874,116.

After plenty of drama to kick off the WSOP action (including Phil Ivey's bombshell announcement about sitting out the WSOP and suing Full Tilt as well as a confrontation between Full Tilt pro John Juanda and James Bord) things have settled down, with players getting into the groove of playing big events each and every day from early June well into July.

Fears that the US government's crackdown on online casino and poker sites might hurt turnout for WSOP events has so far been unfounded, as nearly every event held so far as met or exceeded last year's numbers.

As far as the big early winners, young British phenom Jake Cody won his first WSOP bracelet to go with his EPT and WPT titles, and John Juanda scored one for the big name pros when he won Event #16 (and denied Phil Hellmuth his 12th WSOP bracelet in the process when he defeated Hellmuth in heads-up play).

It's been a good start for the UK, with three Brits so far taking down bracelets, which puts them well on pace to break their best showing ever in 2010 when they won five bracelets to put British poker firmly back on the poker map. The US typically dominates the bracelet count easy year and so far 2011 is no exception.

Below you'll find all the winners for bracelets awarded so far at the 2011 WSOP, with 19 of the 58 total tournaments concluded:
