    Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009 by t2admin

Peter Eastgate has been a very busy man. Eastgate has been traveling the world competing in various poker tournaments since his WSOP Main Event win in 2008. After having a hard time at PokerStars EPT Barcelona Eastgate decided to compete in the PokerStars WCOOP High Roller Event. Eastgate did quite well and cashed out in eighth place.

The high roller event took place on September 13th and had a buy-in of $25,500. The guarantee for this event was $800,000 but with 36 players competing, the prize pool was increased to $900,000. Daniel Negreanu was the host of this WCOOP event which was a no limit hold’em event in match play.

Eastgate’s first match was tough and it would take four hours to complete. Eastgate got an early lead but his opponent managed to hang on for some time before Eastgate sealed the deal. The second match for Eastgate was against Tobias Reinkemeier. It did not take Eastgate long to move on to his third match, which would be against online player Adonis112.

Adonis112 is known for being insane at the poker tables along with having a rude attitude. He abuses his opponents verbally and according to Eastgate’s PokerStars blog he was no exception. Eastgate commented: “The third match was over really fast. I played Adonis, who is known as a wild one, who usually verbally abuses his opponents, including me on a couple of occasions.”

Eastgate would get far in the competition but would finish in eighth place in the event. first place would go to online player Iftarii who earned a large prize of $315,000 for his efforts.
