Peter Eastgate Biography

Peter Eastgate
  • >1 WSOP bracelet
  • >Over $11.5 million in Career Tournament Earnings

    Newly crowned WSOP* Main Event Champion Peter Eastgate began playing online at PokerStars after graduating from high school in his native Denmark, and has been playing at a professional level ever since. He already had several impressive results on the live tournament scene before this year’s World Series, despite not being a regular live player. He made the final table of the Irish Poker Open in 2007, finishing in 9th place for a cash of $46,714. This was followed by a top 30 finish at the European Poker Tour Copenhagen event earlier this year, worth another $16,610. But this was nothing compared to what he was to win in Las Vegas.

The PokerStars Six man was one of the favorites going into November's Final Table, a prediction that was soon to become a reality. After four hours of heads-up action against fellow PokerStars player Ivan Demidov, Peter finally achieved what all poker players dream of - the most prestigious Championship title in the game, the bracelet and $9,152,416 in cash. He also enters the record books, as the youngest ever Main Event winner at just 22. With his total live tournament winnings currently at $9,245,611, Peter is also now one of the highest earning players in the history of the game - 11th place on the all time money list.

Peter is clearly a man wise beyond his years when it comes to money management. He says that he won't be splashing out on expensive things or living a crazy life now that he's a multi-millionaire - he'll be investing the money instead. With what looks like a long and healthy career in poker ahead of him, they'll no doubt be even more money for investment on its way in the future.

You can find Peter playing online exclusively at PokerStars.
