WSOP: McKeehen turns short stack into second bracelet

Everybody in the poker world remembers the moment Chris Moneymaker won the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event, but in 14 editions of the series since then, he’s failed to win that elusive second bracelet.

In fact, of all the players to win the Main Event since Moneymaker, only three had broken through to add another bracelet to their trophy case (Joe Cada, Jonathan Duhamel and Greg Merson).

WSOP: Mosseri steamrolls Negreanu for second gold bracelet

Daniel Negreanu waited an extra night, returning to the Rio for an unscheduled Day 4 in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship, but his quest for a seventh World Series of Poker bracelet was cut short in just four hands.
