2010 WSOP Event #40: $2,500 Razz

WSOP, 2010-06-24, by Ozone

With just 57 events on the WSOP schedule, it always seems unlikely that a player would find him or herself fortunate enough to win two bracelets in a single year, but it seems every year someone manages to do it. Last year, Jeffrey Lisandro found a way to win three bracelets while Brock Parker, Phil Ivey and Greg Mueller managed two apiece. This year, Frank Kassela became a multiple bracelet winner in Event #40, a $2,500 Razz tournament that drew a field of 365 players.

Earlier in the series, Kassela won the $10,000 Stud Hi/Lo Championship over a field of 170 players.

The two wins give Kassela a combined $661,000 in tournament earnings and move him into a tie with John Juanda in the WSOP Player of the Year rankings.

When was the last year that no player managed to win at least two bracelets in a single WSOP? You have to go all the way back to 1999 to find the answer. Ever since Chris Ferguson won two bracelets in 2000, at least one player has managed to win at least two WSOP bracelets in every following year. Here are a listing of multiple bracelet winners since Ferguson started the streak:

2001 - Scotty Nguyen, Nani Dollison
2002 - Phil Ivey (3), Layne Flack
2003 - Men Nguyen, Layne Flack, Chris Ferguson, John Juanda, Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan
2004 - Ted Forrest, Scott Fischman
2005 - Mark Seif
2006 - Bill Chen, Jeff Madsen
2007 - Tom Schneider
2008 - John Phan
2009 - Jeffrey Lisandro (3), Brock Parker, Greg Mueller, Phil Ivey
2010 - Frank Kassela
