Roland de Wolfe - "The Sheep"


The big bad Roland de Wolfe or "The Sheep" has been around the felt for a total of only three years. As an adolescent, de Wolfe was used to pool, poker, and snooker gambling from his family background.

De Wolfe followed many poker tournaments not as a fan but as a journalist for a British gambling magazine, Inside Edge. After becoming editor of the magazine, he tried his luck at the tables and realized he was pretty good.

After winning first prize in the Gutshot Poker Festival, he went on to make a money finish in the $1,000 No Limit event of the 2005 World Series of Poker. In the summer of 2005 when he claimed the World Poker Tour Grand Prix de Paris title, pretty good became an understatement.

Then, finishing third out of 605 runners in April of 2006 at the WPT $25,000 Championship event at the Bellagio, he carried off over $1,000,000. Roland de Wolfe rose to third yet again at the $2,000 No Limit Hold'em Shootout World Series of Poker solidifying his mark with the big dogs.

When asked if he was going to move to America, Ronald de Wolfe answered "I'm committed to playing European events for Full Tilt Poker for the next year at least, so I'll be staying over there."

His career earnings from live tournaments have accumulated to about $1,800,000.
