David Peters's Biography
Originally from Toledo, OH, David Peters first took up the game of poker in high school after watching poker on TV. At first, he organized home games with buddies and played freerolls online to start his bankroll. In just a few short years, his career began to take off and now he’s an international tournament machine.
David started catching the attention of the international poker community in 2007 when he finished 12th at the EPT Grand Final at Monte Carlo. In 2008, David won a WSOP Circuit ring in a $1,060 NL Event at the Caesars Palace circuit stop. Later that year, David made his first career six-figure score after winning the HPT Mount Pleasant Main Event, taking home $130,187 in the process.
David came close to WSOP gold twice in 2010. First, he finished runner up in a $1k NL Event at the 2010 WSOP in Vegas and later that year he finished 4th in the £2,500 NL Six-Max Event at the 2010 WSOP Europe. He just missed the final table of the 2010 WSOP Europe Main Event, finishing 10th.
2013 has proven to be David’s best year in live poker by far. After finishing 2nd in the IPT San Remo Main Event, David went on to finish 6th in the WPT World Championship.
David followed up his first WPT final table appearance with a strong 2013 WSOP where he cashed eight times and made one final table appearance. Right after the WSOP, David took down the largest score of his live tournament career after winning the Bellagio Cup IV Main Event and $355,093.
David has $3.69 Million in live tournament earnings and is one of the hottest pros on the circuit today. He attributes his success to hard work and always trying to bring his A-game to the table despite the prior day’s results.
