During the first week-and-a-half of the 2017 World Series of Poker there were a number of players winning bracelets who had already won WSOP events in the past. Out of the first 15 events of this year's WSOP, 10 of the winners had already earned gold before.

By contrast the past week has seen many players win their first WSOP bracelets, which means this week's 2017 WSOP Quiz includes several questions about them — see how many you can answer correctly.
