David Peters is only 30, but is already one of the most accomplished tournament players in poker history. The Toledo, Ohio native currently has $19.5 million in live cashes, which is good enough for no. 15 on the all-time tournament earnings list.
Peters’ poker resume is filled with high-profile wins, including a WSOP bracelet, an EPT title, many high roller events and the 2016 Card Player Player of the Year award.
Highlights from this interview include the worst orbit of his career, blinding off in Australia, dealing with a down year, unavoidable high-equity spots, an appearance on SportsCenter, Katy Perry is not Lady Gaga, losing $30k playing Yahtzee, the benefits of soothing jungle sounds, another plug for the big-blind ante, never collecting a paycheck, refreshing the crypto page, and a dream phone call with Michael Jordan.
