Youngest Ever Main Event Champion

Postby suitedpairs29 » Tue Nov 11, 2008 6:55 pm

Congratulations to Peter Eastgate of Denmark for winning the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event and being the youngest Main Event winner at age 22 beating out Phil Helmuth when we beat Johnny Chan at age 24. He wins over $9,152,416 and the bracelet and induction into the most exclusive club of poker, main event champions.

From World Series of Poker.COM

Hand #274 - Ivan Demidov Eliminated in 2nd Place ($5,809,595); Peter Eastgate Wins the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event!
Peter Eastgate has the button. He limps in and Ivan Demidov checks the big blind. The flop comes down [2d] [Ks] [3h] . Action is checked to Eastgate, who bets 1.25 million. Demidov calls, then checks again when the [4c] hits the turn. Eastgate doesn't slow down, firing out a bet of 2 million more. Demidov counts to twenty, then check-raises to 6 million. With that bet, he has committed half of his stack to the pot. It could be the point of no return if Eastgate comes along. Eastgate thinks things over for about thirty seconds and then calls. When he does, everyone in the gallery rises expectantly to their feet. The river is the [7s]. Demidov announces all in and Eastgate snap-calls. Could this be it? Demidov shows first, tabling [4h] [2h] for two pair, fours and deuces. Eastgate is next to show, turning over [Ad] [5s] -- he's made a wheel! It's all over! Ivan Demidov has been eliminated in second place, earning $5,809,595 for his remarkable run through this tournament. Peter Eastgate has been crowned the champion of the 2008 World Series of Poker's Main Event.

Inspiration for all young up and comers, if he can do it, we all can!
