De Wolfe hunts down a win at EPT Dublin

"This week I didn't have the luck of the Irish, I had the luck of the whole of Europe," said Roland De Wolfe. "It's an honor to be the first person to win an EPT title and a WPT title when there are so many good players out there. I'm thrilled."

The Dublin event brought out 389 players from all over the world who Roland de Wolfe managed to topple to take his slice of the €1,847,750 prize pool.

The players who made it to the final table with de Wolfe were U.K. players Rob Yong, Gavin Simms, and Nick Slade as well as William Thorson, of Sweden; George McKeever, from Ireland; and Patrick Bueno and David Tavernier, both from France.

Other poker pros who played in the event included Andy Black, David Colclough, Greg Raymer, Mel Judah, Chris Moneymaker, and Antanas "Tony G" Guoga.
