Tristan Wade is a confirmed child of the “Moneymaker Effect”. After seeing Chris’s performance in the 2003 WSOP Wade decided to educate himself more about the game, and after reading a few books began playing low stakes online games and home games around Orlando, FL.
After honing his skills, he attended his first WSOP as soon as he turned 21 in 2006. A year later he made a deep run, placing 163rd for $51,398 which was his highest live cash at the time. Since then, he has simply been crushing it. In 2011 alone, Tristan has amassed over $800k in tournament earnings with 3 WSOP final tables including his first win at the WSOPE $3300 NLH event in Cannes, France. In that event, Tristan was honored with his first WSOP bracelet and his place in poker history .He is also considered by many people to be one of the best poker instructors in the world, having been responsible for the education of thousands of players around the world. Tristan is that rare combination of great skill and great knowledge of the game that makes his such a rare talent.
