In what will surely be a historic event, the Dzivielevski brothers are attempting to both win WSOP bracelets on the same day! Older brother Vitor Dzivielevski is currently 5th in chips with six remaining in the $5K 6-Handed No Limit Hold’em event, while younger brother Yuri Dzivielevski is chip leader of the $10K No Limit 2-7 Lowball event with eighteen players remaining.

Both will be coming back to their respective events on the same day, hoping to claim a piece of WSOP history.

Work To Do

Vitor DzivielevskiWhile the Dzivielevskis are incredibly close to making a historic WSOP achievement, there’s still a lot of work for both of them to do. Vitor has never won a WSOP bracelet before and will be hoping that he can break that duck at the final table of the $5K event. But, with just under 6 million chips, he currently sits in 5th place, nearly 12 million chips behind the chip leader Norbert Szecsi. Vitor will be hoping for an early double-up to get him right back in contention for the bracelet.

His younger brother Yuri Dzivielevski is no stranger to winning WSOP bracelets, but with 17 other players fighting for the title, he’ll do well to hang on to his chip lead. Yuri is up against veritable legends of the game, such as Jason Mercier, Eli Elezra, and Daniel Negreanu, so his run to a fourth WSOP bracelet won’t be easy.

However, the two players are obviously incredibly skilled poker players, and there aren’t many “poker families” that could rival them

Family Affair

The World Series of Poker is no stranger to successful families, with arguably the most successful being the Brunsons. The legend of poker Doyle Brunson collected 10 gold bracelets before he passed, and his son Todd Brunson has one to his name. In fact, they accomplished a similar feat to what the Dzivielevskis are hoping to achieve, both securing bracelets in the 2005 WSOP.

When it comes to poker families, arguably the Mizrachis are the most successful, given the share of bracelets between the brothers. Michael Mizrachi has five WSOP bracelets, including three Poker Players Championship titles, and Robert Mizrachi has four of his own. They’ve never been able to win an event in the same year, but their success at the WSOP is unquestionable.

Another newly-formed poker family that many consider to be one of the best is the Foxens; Alex and Kristen. Kristen has three WSOP bracelets to her name, while Alex won his first last year in the $250K Super High Roller. While they’ve not won in the same year so far, we’re sure they’ll be around for many years to come.

Despite the success of these families, the Dzivielevskis will stand alone if they manage to pull off the simultaneous bracelet win. We can only imagine what the party will be like after if they manage to do it!

Do you think the Dzivielevskis can do it? What do you think is the best poker family playing right now? Stay tuned for all the latest WSOP news and events.
