UK Poker Player De Wolfe Wins at EPT Dublin

UK Poker Player De Wolfe Wins at EPT Dublin

Monday 30th October 2006

Top pro Roland De Wolfe has won the Dublin leg of Season 3 of the European Poker Tour (EPT). Not content with merely beating a field of 388 players, De Wolfe also became the first player to win a World Poker Tour and EPT title.

In an action-packed final table, De Wolfe had approximately 70 per cent of the chips in play by the time there were only three players left in the game – William Thorssen, David Tavernier and De Wolfe himself. The blinds were at 30,000/60,000 with a 5,000 ante.

When Thorssen was knocked out, heads up play began. 1.4 million played 2.5 million in chips with De Wolfe still in the lead. After about a half hour of exchanges, De Wolfe sent Frenchman Tavernier packing when he filled up to trips on the turn and Tavernier moved all in on the river with a complete bluff.

'This week I didn’t have the luck of the Irish, I had the luck of the whole of Europe,” said De Wolfe after his win in which he scooped €554,300.

Previous WSOP champions Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker were present at the event but failed to make the leader board.
