Roland De Wolfe – 2nd Player to Win Poker’s Triple Crown

Poker’s Triple Crown can be won by winning three of the most prestigious events in poker: World Poker Tour (WPT), European Poker Tour (EPT), and World Series of Poker (WSOP). Roland De Wolfe became the 2nd man to win the said Crown by capturing the $5K Pot Limit Omaha 8 Bracelet in the 2009 WSOP. In the said Event the Englishman wore a Union Jack track suit to honor his country.

The first one to get the Triple Crown was Gavin Griffin. He won the first one at the $3,000 Pot Limit Hold ‘Em tournament of the WSOP in 2004; the second one at the wolf bracelet EPT Grand Final in 2007 and the last one at the WPT Borgata Classic in 2008.

On the other hand, De Wolfe garnered the first leg of the crown by winning the WPT Grand Prix De Paris in 2005; the second one during the EPT Dublin Title in 2006 and the last one at the $5k PLO8 title at the WSOP this year competing with 197 participants including Griffin.

De Wolfe was once a writer at a poker magazine called Inside Edge and he confessed that he’s really not familiar with the poker variant that gave him his first WSOP bracelet. He even admits that he just combines his knowledge on PLO and Omaha 8 to become successful with the tournament.

Roland is not a stranger in the US and European tournament scene. He’s been a familiar face since he made his first WSOP cash in an NLHE event. Surprisingly, his largest earnings did not come from the Triple Crown wins but from finishing third at the $25k WPT Championship in 2006 taking at least a million dollars.

Designs are offered in a huge variety including butterfly, hummingbird and dragonfly jewelry. Personalize your handmade jewelry gifts by choosing their favorite animal jewelry designs for that someone special. Wolf, horse, cat and dolphin jewelry are always on the favorite animal jewelry list. Paying extra attention to the preferences of your loved ones will guarantee the perfect unique gifts for any occasion.

Everyone has at least one hard to buy for person on their shopping list. Do not despair for the answers are usually easier than we think. Another time saving trick is to review your choices online before you head to the stores. Many online retailers and wholesalers also have local retail outlets where you can see the pieces in person before making your final decisions.

His win this year at the WSOP marks his first victory at American territory though he have very good outcomes on his preceding WSOP tournaments bagging 14 WSOP cashes and more that $650k in WSOP pay.

Since the number of EPT participants have been increasing these past few years, it won’t be long till the two member club will have a few additions. This is because a lot of top US pro poker players have been touring Europe to join EPT tournaments.

Possibly, in the future more tournaments will be added to the Triple Crown such as the Aussie Millions and Asian Pacific Poker Tour to form a Grand Slam title.
