Three Ontario Poker Players Win Bracelets On WSOP.ca, Five More To Go!
However, when compared to the record-breaking fields at this year's WSOP, these online events, with their fields of 800-2,000-ish, may well represent some of the best chances for Ontario poker players to earn some WSOP gold.
Not to mention that you can take your shot at home, without having to leave the province.
The final day of each event is spaced out by a week, with plenty of Day 1 flights appearing on WSOP.ca ahead of the last push. So far there are three bracelets already awarded and eight bracelets total.
So, Ontario poker players still have a shot at five other events by signing up to WSOP.ca.
In the first week of the series, Event #1: $300 Gladiators of Poker Ontario Opener saw Mahmut “PokerKeeng” Zor take down the first bracelet, earning $38,304* in the process.
Here's what went down with the other two bracelets.

Mahmut Zor Makes Back To Back Final Tables
After winning a bracelet in The Opener, Zor wasn't done. By the time his shiny new bracelet slipped onto his wrist, he was already playing Event #2: $210 Mystery Millions.
Zor managed to make the final table of this mystery bounty event, earning himself $2,754 (not including bounties) for his ninth-place finish.
That also gave Zor the rare distinction of making back-to-back WSOP final tables.
With Zor out, the battle to be Ontario's second 2023 WSOP Online braceleter really got underway, eventually going to Hyundong “fishw33d” Kim who took down $27,298 for first and $7,590 in bounties, for $34,888 total.
