Thousands of people use the services of Ladbrokes to satisfy their online poker needs every day. But most of them can only dream of accomplishing what their fellow Ladbrokes peer Peter “Pete4002” Eastgate has managed to do.
The 22 year-old from Odense, Denmark has managed to become one of the final nine players left in the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event. Peter made it through the tough 6,844 player field to the final table where major guaranteed money awaits.
In fact, even if Peter busts out before everyone else at the table, he’ll still be guaranteed $900,670. But he’ll have to wait quite a while before finding out where he’ll finish as the WSOP Main Event final table won’t take place until November 9th.
Many people from Ladbrokes were extremely happy to see Peter Eastgate make it this far, including the MD of Ladbrokes, Edward Ihre.
Ihre commented on Eastgate by saying, “It’s great to see a Ladbrokes Poker player make it through to the final table. He has done brilliantly, and is definitely a top-class pro in the making. We’re proud to call him a Ladbrokes regular, he’s qualified through to the televised stages of Poker Million twice (2006 and 2007), so he’s no stranger to high stakes pressure.”
Eastgate will be entering the contest in fourth place with a total of 18,375,000 chips which gives him a strong chance to survive deep into the last leg of the lengthy Main Event.
