David Peters finally seals the deal, wins $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em for $412,557

If we take a look at Peters’ World Series of Poker resumé, we see eight final tables before this event, with pretty much finishes in all spots but the one that’s worth the most. Until now. Peters bested a field of 1,860 players in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em to win his first golden bracelet, along with the $412,557 price money.



On the third day, 28 players returned, all hunting for the top spot. Among the noteable names were this year’s EPT Monte Carlo runner-up Adrien Allain, Faraz Jaka and Matt Affleck. The latter finished in third place for $184,456 (and is known for the bad beat he got from Jonathan Duhamel deep in the main event in 2010).
