Canada's Timothy Adams Wins WSOP $2,500 NL Four Handed

Canada's Timothy Adams Wins WSOP $2,500 NL Four Handed Canada’s Timothy Adams won WSOP Event #28: $2,500 NL Four Handed, after defeating a field of 750 players over three days to capture a gold bracelet, as well as the $392,476 first place prize.
The event was added to the WSOP schedule for the first time this year, and has received overwhelming support from the players involved. Describing his experience at the high action format, Timothy Adams commented:
“Its all such a blur right now, I mean, three days of four-handed poker is crazy..Most of the time you are playing deep, so it’s like you are playing a deep cash game four-handed for twelve hours a day.”
Amongst the notable names having a deep run in the inaugural competition was Tony Dunst in 18th ($10,510), Tom Braband in 17th ($10,510), Sam Stein in 16th ($12,745), Eric Froelich in 15th ($12,745), Mickey Petersen in 10th ($25,252) and Jason Koon in 9th ($25,252).
Eventually, the final table was reached consisting of Anthony Gregg, James Schaaf, Timothy Adams and Brendon Rubie, who had a formidable chip advantage. However, Timothy Adams (Ad-Ks) soon soared into a chip lead after going all-in on a 7h-6d-2d flop against Rubie (Jd-9d), who then failed to hit his monster draw.
Still, Rubie managed to regain some chips after being dealt pocket twos and winning a race against Anthony Gregg’s A-3. Gregg, however, exited in 4th and was followed a while later by James Schaaf (4-4) who called off his tournament on a Q-2-2-Q-Q board only to discover Adams was holding pocket tens.
Timothy Adams then took a 10 to 1 chip advantage over Brendon Rubie into heads-up play but had his lead reduced to 3 to 2 before the defining hand was played. Adams (A-Q) went all-in on a Q-10-8-5 board and was called by Rubie with K-Q, who subsequently finished the runner-up for a $242,458 payday. Meanwhile, Timothy Adams captured his first WSOP winners bracelet, while taking his live tournament earnings to $581,248.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1. Timothy Adams – $392, 476
2. Brendon Rubie – $242,458
3. James Schaaf – $164,823
4. Anthony Gregg – $114,711
