Despite bringing the smallest stack into the final eight, Timothy Adams is no stranger to high pressure situations and success on the poker circuit. Adams, a Canadian professional poker player hailing from Burlington, ON, holds over $1.6 million in live tournament winnings to his name. Adams is also known for his online play under the name "Tim0thee".
Adams' live tournament results date back as far as 2007, but he found true glory during the summer of 2012 at the World Series of Poker. During that summer, Adams scored an impressive five cashes, one of which happened to be a victory and a WSOP bracelet. Adams conquered the field of Event 28: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Four-Handed to clinch his first bracelet win and pocket over $392,000 in prize money.
Despite his WSOP bracelet being one of, if not the most prestigious items on Adams' live poker resume, his largest cash came earlier this year at the 2013 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final. Adams scored a fourth-place finish in the €100,000 Super High Roller which netted him €485,100 in prize money ($636,088) for the largest live tournament score of his life. If Adams can work his short stack up and best the field today, he will break his personal record set at the EPT Grand Final and find a new event sitting at the top of his resume.
