WSOP bracelet winner Tristan Wade scored his first ever circuit gold ring in the first stop of the 2014/2015 WSOP Circuit tour beating a field of great players and managing to come out on top of an 8.5 hour final table marathon. It’s normally the case that players get a hold of a ring before a bracelet but doing things the other way around isn’t to be frowned upon, and adding to his 2011 WSOP Europe bracelet is the coveted ring.
Wade is a 29 year old professional player from South Florida and already has a cool $1.1 Million in tournament earnings to his name, and the field of 303 players meant that he also scooped a very handy $106,806 when taking this one down at the Kennel Club. It was no easy task and he had to get past another WSOP bracelet winner in David Diaz in doing so. After the win Wade stated that, “I’ve been waiting to win a tournament for a while, it’s in my backyard so I got to have the family come and support me. My mom got off work early and they were staying up late late night and rooting for me and following the updates. It’s really nice to have my family here and be close to home.”
The head up session provided two fellow professionals and WSOP winners going for it, and it’s not often that this is seen on the Circuit, however it did prove that no matter how big you get, there’s always space in your schedule for a great WSOP Circuit event.
