London born poker pro Roland de Wolfe has won the Mansion Poker London Open 2010 after defeating a field of 111 players over two days to take down the title and the £77,000 ($116,000) top prize.
The £2,000 buy-in tournament at Les Ambassadeurs Club in London managed to produce a prize pool of £222,000, as well as attract a host of poker pros and celebrities including ex-football star Teddy Sheringham, Hendon Mobsters Barny and Ross Boatman, Andy ‘Greekfish’ Andreou and WSOP bracelet winner James Vogl.
Roland de Wolfe showed his class throughout the tournament and eventually defeated James Vogl heads-up, who had to be satisfied with his £41,180 pay-day. Roland de Wolfe has now earned in excess of $4,700,000 from live tournament cashes over his six year career and following his victory, Marketing Director at Mansion and Jeff Turner commented:
“MansionPoker would like to offer its congratulations to the winner of the poker tournament, English poker professional, Roland De Wolfe, who can now add the MansionPoker London Open 2010 to his list of victories including the World Series of Poker – World Poker Tour and The European Poker Tour.”
Roland de Wolfe has certainly enjoyed an illustrious career since making the transition from ‘Inside Edge’ gambling journalist to poker player back in 2004. Soon after he won first prize at the WPT Major Grand Prix de Paris 2005, picking up an impressive $628,678 for his victory to help springboard his poker career.
In April 2006, Roland then made his biggest score to date when he placed third at the WPT Five-Star World Poker Classic 2006 for a $1.25 million pay-day, and in October the same year added another $726,477 to his bankroll after winning the EPT Dublin event. In the process, he became the first person to win an event in the WPT and the EPT and by 2009 had captured a WSOP bracelet to complete his hat-trick of titles and ensure his deserved reputation as a world class poker tournament specialist.
