David Peters, 26, is a professional poker player from Toledo, Ohio. A member of Team Ivey, Peters has over $3.2 million in online tournament earnings and over $2.7 million in live tournament earnings.
This is his 21st cash at the World Series of Poker. In 2010, Peters finished runner-up in a $1,000 buy-in event, earning $350,803. It is the largest score of his career, which is filled with close calls and near misses in major events.
Peters does have five live wins, however, including a gold ring in 2008, two wins at Festa al lago, and a Main Event victory on the HPT.
Team Ivey already has a bracelet this year with Phil himself winning one down under, and Peters could bring a second to the team with a win today.
