WASSUP '09: Event #27, De Wolfe Wins De Bracelet
June 15, 2021

Roland De Wolfe, a champion of both the World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour, completed the so-called "Poker Triple Crown" this weekend when he earned his first bracelet by taking down Event #27 of the 2009 World Series of Poker- the $5,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo.

198 players entered Event #27 including top pros like Mike Matusow, Clonie Gowen, Kathy Liebert, Scott Fischman, Daniel Negreanu and The Life of Ivey's Phil Ivey, who made it deep into Day 2 of the event despite also playing in Event #25 the entire time- an event he eventually won.

None of the above listed players made the money of the Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo but that doesn't mean De Wolfe's final table was an easy one.  The Event #27 final table included quite a few established pros including Alex Kravchenko, Scott Clements, Andrew Black and Brett Richey, who made it all the way into heads-up play before finally rolling over to Roland.

The final table finish positions for Event #27- the Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/low Split 8-or-Better were as follows:

1st.  Roland De Wolfe- $246,616

2nd.  Brett Richey- $152,618

3rd.  Scott Clements- $101,063

4th.  Robert Campbell- $72,121

5th.  Alexander Kravchenko- $53,881

6th.  Andrew Black- $42,993

7th.  John Racener- $36,200

8th.  Armando Ruiz II- $32,105

9th.  Anthony Lellouche- $29,965

Bad table move. Rolande de Wolfe on mt left also Jeff Lissandro and Ben Tang
-Daniel Negreanu

Ok so worse than I thought. Roland is an absolute nutcase in this game! He just went ballistic preflop with 3567 three hearts in hand
-Daniel Negreanu

No longer chip boss. Got up to 210 then played a big hand with Andy Black. 175 at break. Still looking strong.
-JD Newitt

Are you serious. Ivey shows up for one hand. I flop 3 queens he makes a flush on me. I have 13k
-Daniel Negreanu

Dinner break, 28 players left I have 101k. 18 make the money. Avg is about 105k
-Andy Bloch

26 left. 13k would be tough to limp in the money but its worth 20 points. Ivey has 100k and isn't here- he'll cash lol
-Daniel Negreanu

Busted in 21st. 18 pay. F@%#k poker. I'm over it.
-JD Newitt

Small consolation: $17,495 moves me ahead of world champs Varkonyi and Johnston in the WSOP money list:
-Andy Bloch
