Winning two bracelets at the same World Series of Poker is a rare feat that less than 60 players have achieved during the long and storied history of the WSOP.
A whole host of familiar names have achieved the feat including Scotty Nguyen, Max Pescatori and Brian Rast, with Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth among a select group to have done it twice!
