Great result for David Peters. For the last few days he was dominating a festival of High Rollers at Aria.
After World Series of Poker Europe and WPT Montreal High Roller players decided to head to Aria. For the whole last week they participated in events with high buy-ins and as many as two of them were Short Deck. There was also Pot Limit Omaha.
On Wednesday players finished the biggest of the events. It was a $100,000 buy-in tournament and it attracted players who altogether decided for 24 entries raising the pool to $2,400,000.
Ben Tollerene managed to get into cash by taking the 4th spot. The final three included Rick Salomon, Jake Schindler and David Peters. Salomon with AK won against KK Schindler had, and thanks to that he faced Peters in the final heads-up.
Salomon was close to winning the whole event but his ace king lost to A9. Afterwards there was another flip that Peters won this time with KQ against opponent's TT. Salomon took home $672,000.
David Peters won the entire event and $1,104,000. Interestingly a day before that he was third in a $50,000 event. American cannot complain as during WSOPE in Rozvadov he lost only to Martin Kabrhel and still cashed 1.8 million. All in ll the last two weeks brought Peters over $3,000,000!

We've also had an opportunity to experience $25,000 game. “Only” 21 entries, but the winner, Stehpen Chidwick surely does not complain. The poker player cashed $283,500, who played the final HU with Bill Klein ($157,500).
