Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

David Peters Eliminated in 2nd Place ($350,803)

David Peters - 2nd place

After that crippling hand versus Marcel Vonk, Peters lost another and was down to about 1 million chips when Vonk open-raised all in from the button. Peters checked his cards, and didn't waste much time making the call.

Peters {K-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Vonk {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

The flop brought an ace -- {7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{8-Hearts} -- but gave Peters a pair as well, which meant he wasn't drawing dead after the {4-Spades} turn. But the river brought the {9-Diamonds}, and after leading for much of this heads-up battle, Peters was eliminated.

Volk has won!
