David Peters has done it again! The tournament legend from Toledo, OH, ranked 7th on The Hendon Mob’s all-time money list with $33,737,539 in lifetime winnings, captured his second gold bracelet in Event #54: $10,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold’em Championship for $360,480, Peters followed up on his 2016 bracelet win in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event to double his tally of the coveted prize.
After being behind for the majority of the final showdown against Michael Addamo, Peters wrestled himself back on top before winning nine hands in a row to drop Addamo to the short stack. Addamo doubled back once but the second all-in brought Peters the victory, denying the Aussie’s bid at a third WSOP title and leaving Addamo to settle for $223,488 as the runner-up.
