David Peters


David Peters is a man who needs no introduction around the poker world.

At age 31, he’s seemingly a lock to make the Poker Hall of Fame when he turns 40. The Ohio native is one of just five players in history to surpass $30 million in lifetime live tournament earnings, joining Justin Bonomo, Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, and Fedor Holz.

Peters, a no-limit hold’em specialist, won’t tell you he doesn’t have much left to accomplish in poker, but the truth is there really isn’t much more for him to prove.

Not only does he have a WSOP bracelet and $30 million in cashes. He’s also one of the most consistent tournament performers ever and won the 2016 GPI Player of the Year award.

From 2015-2018, he cashed for at least $2.9 million each year, with his best year financially coming in 2018 when he surpassed the $10 million mark.

Peters has a quiet demeanor at the table. He lets his chips do the talking for him. At all times, he’s cool, calm, and collect. David has achieved success on many tours and the high-roller circuit.

He has made two WPT final tables, cashed 52 times in WSOP events, earned a fifth-place finish in the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl, and even has a Triton Super High Roller Series title. The man has done it all…almost.

What’s left for David Peters to accomplish as a poker player? Not much other than winning the WSOP Main Event or a Super High Roller Bowl.
