The 2014 WSOP has entered into their history book more than a third of this year’s events and there is no denying that players from the U.S.A. have taken control, blowing away the competition at the Rio in Las Vegas. This year there were 65 bracelets to be awarded; thus far 23 of those have been snatched up with American players taking an overwhelming lead by slipping 20 of those bracelets on their wrists.
U.S. players have filled their bank accounts with $38, 059, 289.00 in winnings from a total of 2,720 cashes. The closest country now in distant second place is Canada with $1, 531, 605.00 with just over 270 cashes and no bracelets yet. The only other bracelet winners so far are Germany with two bracelets but only $972,205 and Belgium with one bracelet and just $660,793.
