The anthem of Canada sounded in Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas again and again as the six weeks poker season ended with a triumph of Canadian players, who managed to win 10 bracelets.

In addition, Daniel Negreanu, a resident of Toronto, was so good in Australian and US competitions that earned the WSOP 2013 ‘Player of the year’ title.

When in late June Kristen Bicknell from Ontario won the women’s tournament, it a new achievement has been recorded: the bracelets have been awarded to ten players from Canada, which is a huge progress after three bracelets received in 2012.

The previous record of the country was six bracelets won in 2010.
