What is And What Should Never Be

World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets have taken on an almost mythical significance, whereas most rational people recognize the far more valuable aspect of winning a WSOP event is the excessive amount of cash that the winner gets to keep.

Other tournament venues, like the Bellagio, award bracelets, and online site PokerStars even sends out bracelets to winners of the WCOOP.

In 2008, the Wold Poker Tour (WPT) retroactively awarded its own bracelets to the winners of all its events.
