Event #2:

 

Event #1: Poland is on the Board (They Kinda Already Were)

Through 51 years of action, players from 59 different countries have won WSOP bracelets. According to the Hendon Mob, Poland was not one of them until after the opening event of the 2021 WSOP Online on GGPoker. Bartlomiej Swieboda navigated his way through 30,809 other entries to win Event #1 ($50 NLHE The Return) for $161,111 and the first WSOP bracelet for his native Poland. There are at least two previous bracelet winners born in Poland, though both were U.S. residents at the time of their victory. Henry Orenstein won his bracelet in a $5,000 Seven Card Stud event in 1996 while Michael Gracz won a $1,000 NLHE w/rebuys event in 2005.
