Timothy Adams Has a Four Score; Wins WSOP Event #28

Timothy Adams - WSOP Event 28

Evidently, as far as some players are concerned, six players is too many, and heads-up is too few, or so it seems, since there seem to be so many that like playing four handed.

There was a new event unveiled this year at the World Series of Poker, bringing new meaning to the term ‘shorthanded game.’ The $2,500 No-Limit Holdem Four Handed Event #28, made its debut to great reviews, especially from the winner Timothy Adams.

If the 750 entries were any indication of popularity and durability, the new Four Handed event should be around for years to come. Similar to the Six Handed (or 6-Max) games, the Four Handed Holdem format makes for a game full of action as all but one player will have either a blind or the button, making it impossible to ‘sit and wait.’

The format has become increasingly popular with online players, so much so that the WSOP head honchos decided to try it as a bracelet event this year. One of the 750 players that decided to try for a slice of the $1.7 million prize pool and the first gold bracelet issued for this event was 26 year old Canadian Timothy Adams, a business school graduate turned poker pro.

After making the trek to the Rio from his home in Burlington, Ontario, it took Timothy three days to end up as the last player sitting at the final table which played out on the ESPN Main Stage on June 23rd. After a heads-up match between Adams and Brendon Rubie that seemed to drag on forever Rubie got all his chips in on his {k-Spades}{q-Hearts} with a board of {8-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{a-Spades}. But Adams was sitting with the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} to send him to the winner’s circle and his first WSOP gold bracelet and $392,476.

Among the bracelet holders that played and cashed in the new Four-Handed event were: Eric Froehlich (15th), Sam Stein (16th), Michael Banducci (19th), Brain Rast (22nd), Jeff Madsen (25th), Annette Obrestad (41st), Humberto Brenes (55th), Gavin Smith (58th), Leo
(69th), and Davidi Kitai (79th).

The final table payouts were:

1stTimothy Adams$392,476
2ndBrendon Rubie$242,458
3rdJames Schaaf$164,823
4thAnthony Gregg$114,711
