In April 2006, De Wolfe finished 3rd out of 605 entries in the WPT $25,000 Championship event at the Bellagio, winning over $1,000,000. In October 2006, De Wolfe won the European Poker Tour (EPT) Dublin event, and the €554,300 first prize. In the process, he became the first person to win an event in the WPT and the EPT. This achievement was superseded in January 2008 when Gavin Griffin won a WPT event to follow up on his WSOP and EPT wins, thus becoming the first person to win titles in all three competitions.
De Wolfe also reached the final table of the 2008 edition of Late Night Poker, finishing in 2nd place.
In June 2009, De Wolfe won his first World Series of Poker bracelet, winning the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better tournament for $246,616 and in doing so became only the second person (after Gavin Griffin) to complete the hat-trick of WSOP, EPT, and WPT titles.
