Clements is the first of these three that we'll talk about as he holds numerous WSOP accolades in the game of Omaha including two World Series of Poker gold bracelets. In 2006, Clements won the $3,000 Omaha Hi-Low for $301,175. In 2007, he won the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha. He also has a second, a third, a seventh and a ninth in other Omaha events.

If you take a look at the WSOP All-Time Omaha Hi-Low money list, Clements has $747,828 in earnings and is second to only Sammy Farha. He's 112th on the WSOP All-Time Omaha money list with $194,206 in earnings.

Force is right back in action after winning Event 3: $3,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha last night. He defeated Jason Koon heads up to win his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet for $207,708.

Along with his standout win last night, Force has several WSOP cashes to his name. In total, his record boasts seven of them, including a stellar 11th-place finish in the 2006 Main Event for a whopping $1,154,527. From those WSOP finishes and including his win last night, Force has a total of $312,644 in WSOP earnings in tournament that contain some variant of Omaha.

Max Stern from the 2011 WSOP

Stern has a gold bracelet of his own and it's in the game we're playing today, Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better. Back in 1995, Stern won the $1,500 Omaha 8-or-Better event for $140,400.
