Tristan Wade Winner

After three days of No Limit Hold'em, Tristan Wade emerged on top of a 303 player field to take home his first WSOP Circuit ring and adds $106,806 to his career tournament earnings by defeating David Diaz heads-up on Monday afternoon at the Palm Beach Kennel Club.

The final day saw three players come back to fight for a Circuit Main Event title and after Tom Midena was eliminated in third place, it was a battle between two bracelet winners for a Circuit ring.

Just a few hands later, Diaz was all in with pocket jacks against Wade's   , but a king on the turn sealed the hand for Wade and gave him his first ring along with a six-figure score.

Final table results:

1st: Tristan Wade - $106,806
2nd: David Diaz - $66,039

Diaz leads the field with 2,825,000 of the 6,060,000 chips in play. Wade begins play second and Michigan pro Tom Midena is the table short stack.
