Today, the newly designed World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 Main Event bracelet was unveiled by well-known actor Vince Vaughn. The revelation was surrounded with pomp and excitement. A bevy of gladiator-dressed men carried the actor holding the new WSOP bracelet to the middle of the hall. There was only one thing wrong…he was holding it upside down!
Yes! Imagine you’re in charge of revealing one of the most sought-after poker awards in the world and you’re doing it wrong. Decked up in full gladiator costume, a red cape with golden laurel leaves crowning him, Vance was certainly the centre of attention. However, even though it was the unveiling of the WSOP Main Event bracelet, the main highlight of the night wasn’t even shown the right way.
Despite the slight mistake, it was a successful night with the world getting a glimpse of the Main Event bracelet. For Vance, we think playing a few WSOP events and winning at least one event might help him get a hang of holding a bracelet (just kidding!). The actor was in good spirits and was honoured to be the Master of Champions.

Well, while Vance eventually held the bracelet the right way up. Say, something like this happened in India, who would be the one to correct it? We do have an answer for this and that person would be Zarvan Tumboli, of course. Recently, at the Asian Poker Tour Vietnam 2022 when Shardul Parthasarathi won the APT Vietnam APT 2022 the Indian flag was upside down with the green band at the top. However, Tumboli came to the rescue and corrected the flag immediately and even lightly reprimanded the APT staff for getting it wrong in the first place.
With the new WSOP Main Event bracelet designed now revealed, players will be even more eager to clinch the top prize. The race for the Main Event has already begun and the WSOP staff also expects this year’s Main Event to be the biggest one yet. There was even a recent schedule change for the Main Event to better facilitate the big turnout expected.
