Poker enthusiasts will admit that this game is pivoted on variance. The lows, highs and middling bits are ineluctable, thus, adapting to the evolving dynamic is imperative for all players. Then it comes the penultimate eve to the finals, this is the day of reckoning, but the second player is still copiously compensated. Danish Peter Eastgate has demonstrated excellent poker dexterity to topple US dominants in the game. He has also jumped into different events where his skill has been equally noted as well. He won the 2008 WSOP main event to set the record as the youngest player hitherto until Joe Cada recently vanquished him.
He first rose to prominence in the poker landscape by winning the World Series of Poker main event. In the Main Event, the final hand garnered him $9,152,416 and cast him in limelight. However, although this heralded for success, Eastgate was drummed out as he held out his Main-Event, coming at the 78th position. Before WSOP, he had a good cash finish during the European Poker Tour event, 2008 in Copenhagen and appeared in the Irish Poker Open finals in 2007. Another big win was the $46,714 that he got when he took part in the Paddy Irish Poker Open in 2007. Hailing from a less-vibrant poker region, he has arguably exemplary accomplishments.
Subsequently, after his spoils at the World Series of Poker major event, Eastgate has defended his play vociferously. His cash in at the EPT/ European Poker Tour PokerStars.com Caribbean adventure gave him $5,000 and also emerged second in the 2009 EPT in London for £530,000. He was 5th in the 2010 (NBC) National’s Heads-Up Championship in Las Vegas raking off $75,000. By that year, his gross live events winnings were beyond $10,900,000. He is highly promising and balanced to clinching more prizes.
