Tristan Wade Wins WSOPE Bracelet And $261,150 In France

US pro Tristan Wade has just triumphed at WSOPE Event #4, the €3,200 NL Shootout, after defeating a field of 339 players over three days to earn his first old bracelet, and collect the  €182,048 ($261,150) first place prize.
The 27 year-old from Florida is Director of Training  at the Deepstacks University, who now has $979,662 in live earnings to go with his  $1,457,157 won online playing under the screen name “Cre8ive.”
Tristan Wade also made two final tables at WSOP 2011 which, combined with his WSOPE victory in Cannes, has now propelled the seasoned pro into 7th spot on the 2011 World Series of Poker Player of the Year board. Commenting on his remarkable victory in Cannes, Wade said:
“The World Series of Poker is the best tournament series in the world. So, winning a gold bracelet in one of these events is a feat that most people will never accomplish…I would rather win a World Series bracelet rather than any other tournament. I am so glad I did. Now, I hope I can knock down some other tournaments, as well.”
As Tristan Wade reached the final table of the €3,200 NL Shootout, he was accompanied by two WSOP bracelet winners; Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier and James Dempsey. He was also one of 5 Americans at the final table, which further included 2 Brits, a Canadian, a French and a Hungarian player.
Eventually, Tristan Wade (985k) went heads-up against Michael Watson (1.378m). Soon, however, Wade was able to move to a 2-to-1 chip advantage before the defining hand of the tournament was played.
Watson raised and then four-bet shoved holding Ah-5h into Wade’s pocket jacks, only for the board to then run out Qs-Qd-4h-10c-2h. Consequently, Michael Watson collected €112,526 for his runner-up finish, while Tristan Wade was crowned the champion.
Here are the finishing results at the final table:
1st: Tristan Wade (US) €182,048
2nd: Michael Watson (US) €112,526
3rd: Richard Toth (Hungary) €84,016
4th: Max Silver (UK) €63,151
5th: Bertrand Grospellier (France) €47,763
6th: Steve O’Dwyer (US) €36,357
7th: Emil Patel (US) €27,842
8th: Taylor Paur (US) €21,459
9th: James Dempsey (UK) €16,637
10th: John Armbrust (US) €12,981
