David Peters, is now a four-time World Series Of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner and richer by $1,166,810 after he took down Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty at the 2022 WSOP. Peters entered the High Roller Bounty final table (FT) as the chip leader and defeated Chance Kornuth to add a WSOP title to his credit. Kornuth who recently won the World Poker Tour (WPT) Choctaw Championship for $486,600 ended up in the runner-up position for $721,144.
This was one of the fastest WSOP FTs as it played out only till 26 hands were dealt. The heads-up clash between the two rivals lasted only for 10 minutes. The last hand took place at Level 18, when the blinds were 60,000/120,000, ante 120,000. Peters had Kh and Ks while Kornuth had 8s and 8c. The flop opened to 6h 7d 9s giving Kornuth an open ended straight draw. The river and turn opened Ad and 7s respectively. Peters won with the bigger two pairs (KK, 77) and pocketed $1,166,810 in prize money.
Talking about his victory, Peters said, “It feels great, especially the first event of the series, the first event being away from the Rio, it’s such a prestigious tournament, so many great players.” “Getting number four is big. There are not too many people who have four. It’s a very, very nice start to the series,” he further added.
“It’s always nice to beat someone that’s hot and a great player. It wasn’t exactly a super long heads-up battle, but it was nice to beat a player like that for sure,” commented Peters. With this victory, the latest WSOP $100,000 High Roller Bounty winner adds yet another bracelet to his name.
