Roland de Wolfe began in the poker industry as a writer for the English magazine Inside Edge. Through writing and covering tournaments around the world, De Wolfe decided it was time to seriously give it a shot of his own.
De Wolfe began playing some smaller buy-in tournaments in 2004 and had some success. The following year though, he had a big breakout after he won the WPT’s Grand Prix de Paris for just under $575,000. With that big win and a swelled bankroll, Roland began playing more and more events worldwide. The more events he played, the more results he posted.
In 2006, he entered the WPT World Championship in which he placed third for over $1 million. During the summer of that year, he would go on to cash in two WSOP events, making the final table of one of them. Also in 2006, Roland won an event at the Poker Meltdown Festival in London and took home nearly $700,000 for a win at the Irish Masters in Dublin. Two more six-figure paydays rolled in during November and December when he placed second in two events.
Back in Dublin the following year in 2007, De Wolfe took second to Marty Smyth in an event at the Irish Open for over $400,000. That year was also a pretty big year for Roland on the WSOP felt. He cashed in five WSOP events in the U.S. and also in one in London at the WSOP Europe.
De Wolfe is a member of Team Full Tilt where he can regular be seen playing online. He’s often found on the Omaha tables at the higher limits. Over his career, Roland has earned more than $4 million in tournament winnings.
