The “Triple Crown” is one of poker’s most elusive accolades. To become a Triple Crown winner, a player needs to capture titles on all three major poker tours – World Series of Poker (WSOP), World Poker Tour (WPT), and European Poker Tour (EPT). Currently, only nine players own the Triple Crown title.
New WSOP Triple Crown Title Up for Grabs in 2021                                 
The WSOP recently announced that it’s holding three separate festivals this year, each of which will award gold bracelets, paving the way for a “new” and somehow “different” Triple Crown title.
The race for the title begins on July 1st, when the WSOP Online kicks off. The action will then head to the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas in late September for the live, in-person WSOP festival. The WSOP will wrap up 2021 with WSOP Europe, another live event which will get underway in November at the King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.
So who could potentially capture a WSOP Triple Crown title this year? The list is quite long, but let’s just write down the Top 10 most recognizable names who could be in line to earn the accolade.
Phil Hellmuth
Hellmuth easily makes it to the list, considering his outstanding WSOP record. The “Poker Brat” won all of his 15 bracelets in WSOP live festivals in Las Vegas and Europe. This means Hellmuth only needs to win an event in WSOP Online this year to become a WSOP Triple Crown winner.
Daniel Negreanu
Like Hellmuth, Negreanu also needs to win an online bracelet event, either on WSOP.com or GGPoker. He already owns six gold bracelets in total, all of which he also won in live festivals (WSOP Las Vegas, WSOP Europe, and WSOP Asia Pacific).
Fedor Holz
Holz should win in WSOP Europe to take home a Triple Crown title. The German poker superstar has won two gold bracelets so far throughout his career – one in Las Vegas, the other one at the 2020 WSOP Online.
Antonio Esfandiari
Esfandiari has three WSOP bracelets – two of them he won in Vegas, the other one in Europe. The 42-year-old should take down an online bracelet event to earn the WSOP Triple Crown title.
Bertrand Grospellier
Grospellier could add another Triple Crown title to his name, and that’s if he also wins an online bracelet.
Kristen Bicknell
The only female player on the list is Kristen Bicknell. The Canadian poker pro won two bracelets in Las Vegas, and added another one during the 2020 WSOP Online, meaning she needs to win an event in WSOP Europe to complete the Triple Crown title.
Chance Kornuth
Kornuth, the founder of Chip Leader Coaching poker site, could also potentially bag the Triple Crown title if he wins in WSOP Europe.
Jeff Lisandro
Perth, Australia native Jeff Lisandro is also on the list. He has six bracelets, all of which he won in live festivals (WSOP Vegas, WSOP Europe, and WSOP Asia Pacific). What he lacks is an online bracelet to complete the title.
David Peters
Peters needs to win a bracelet in WSOP Europe to be a Triple Crown winner. He won his first bracelet in 2016, and added another one at the 2020 WSOP Online.
Tony Dunst
Poker pro and commentator Tony Dunst also needs to capture a bracelet in WSOP Europe. Similar to Peters, Dunst also has two bracelets – he won one in Las Vegas in 2016; the other one at the 2020 WSOP Online festival.
Triple Crown Winners in Poker History
American poker pro Gavin Griffin was the first player to become a Triple Crown winner. His first WSOP bracelet came in 2004, and in 2007 and 2008, he bagged titles in the EPT and WPT respectively.
The latest to achieve this major feat was Roberto Romanello, when he won a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2020 WSOP Online. The poker pro from Swansea, Wales captured his EPT and WPT titles in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
The remaining players on the Triple Crown list are Bertrand Grospellier, Roland De Wolfe, Jake Cody, Davidi Kitai, Mohsin Charania, Harrison Gimbel, and Niall Farrell.
