A Scottish player who now considers the Philippines as his home, Freddie used a patient and intelligent strategy to pick his spots all throughout the tournament. In the end, he found himself heads-up against local player Oplong Sinapilo.

With Sinapilo already running low on chips, the Filipino finally decided to make a stand and moved all-in with 10s 8c. Journeaux obliged and called his shove, tabling As 3s. He immediately hit on the flop as it came Ah 4c Ks. The Kh on the turn sealed the deal for Journeaux, crowning him as the champion of Wild ‘N Wet.

For the win, Journeaux won Php 137,700 in cash and a Php 11,000 seat to the upcoming Filipino Poker Tour (FPT) five million peso guaranteed event in June. Meanwhile, Sinapilo went home with Php 76,000 in cash as well as a seat to the upcoming FPT event.

The top ten finishers during the tournament also received Php 4,000 vouchers for future tournaments at the Wild Aces poker room.

The Php 500,000 guaranteed The Poker Circuit: Wild ‘N Wet was held at the Wild Aces Poker Sports Club in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines, from May 14-16. The event featured a total of 131 entries and 35 add-ons.

Wild ‘N Wet was an Asian Poker Tour (APT) accredited event. Players that cash in will be part of the APT Accredited Events Leaderboard.
