Tristan Wade wins WSOPE Shootout tournament

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Oct 14, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

Event #4 of the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe featured a very tough final table lineup that included amongst others, Triple Crown winner Bertrand “ElkY”Grosspellier, Online Player of the Year contender Taylor “ambiguosity” Paur, as well as poker pros James Dempsey, Tristan “Cre8ive” Wade, Steve O’Dwyer, Richard Toth, Mike “SirWatts” Watson, and Emil “WhiteLime” Patel.

In the end it would be online phenom Tristan Wade who would walk away with the hefty first-place prize-money and his first WSOP bracelet. Wade is no stranger to live tournaments, as he managed two final tables at the 2011 WSOP tournament series this summer, and with the nearly $200k in prize-money he pocketed for his first win, Wade is now approaching the $750k mark for 2011 earnings.

Wade and the rest of the table would see some of the stiffest competition at the final table eliminated early on as WSOP bracelet winner James Dempsey was the first to go in 9th place, followed by Paur, Patel, O’Dwyer, and Grosspellier. At this point Wade amped up his aggressiveness and it paid off big time for the budding poker star. He would eventually find himself heads-up against Canadian pro Mike “SirWatts” Watson, and despite a tough battle, Wade managed to win the tournament when his Pocket Jacks survived against Watson’s A4.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1. Tristan Wade — €182,048

2. Michael Watson — €112,526

3. Richard Toth — €84,016

4. Max Silver — €63,151

5. Bertrand Grospellier –€ 47,763

6. Steve O’Dwyer — €36,357

7. Emil Patel — €27,842
