David Peters Wins Second 2024 PokerGO Cup Trophy ($315,000)

After a marathon three-handed play, American Pro David Peters clinched victory in PokerGO Cup Event #7: $15,100 No-Limit Hold’em, pocketing $315,000. This win marks his second win in the series, following his earlier success in Event #1, where he secured $141,525.

However, this event posed quite a bigger challenge for Peters against the duo of poker superstars – Kristen Foxen, the four-time GPI Female Player of the Year, and Brock Wilson, a young poker pro who already boasts $7 million in lifetime earnings.

Peters has a remarkable start to 2024 with two other cashes in the PGT Last Chance series, marking one of the most impressive beginnings to a year in his already illustrious career. Just 33 days into 2024, Peters has already amassed over $700,000 in live tournament cashes.

With this latest win, Peters also ascended to the top of the PokerGO Cup leaderboard, securing a comfortable lead with 457 points. David Coleman trails in second place with 347 points, and Jonathan Little is a bit further behind with 277 points, with only the $25,200 Main Event remaining.

2024 PokerGO Cup Event #7: $15,100 NLHE Final Table Action

Daniel Smiljkovic

The second-to-last tournament of the PokerGO Cup series attracted 70 players, creating a prize pool of $1,050,000, with the top 10 players getting paid. Daniel Negreanu, the unfortunate bubble boy, was eliminated by Daniel Smiljkovic. The final table saw Smiljkovic, the 2023 PGT Champion, leading with 49 big blinds, closely followed by Peters with 47 big blinds, and Kristen Foxen entering as the short stack with 22 big blinds.

The final table saw rapid eliminations, with Morten Klein first to leave after Brock Wilson turned a set of queens against his top pair ace. Seth Davis soon followed, initially losing most of his chips to Foxen and then being outdrawn by Smiljkovic.

Brock Wilson

But Daniel Smiljkovic was the next on the chopping block. His ace-queen clashed with Brock Wilson’s pocket fours. Fortune favored Wilson as his hand held up, eliminating the German in fourth place. Armed with newfound chips, Wilson led the three-handed battle but could not maintain his lead against Peters and Foxen. The trio’s dynamic shifted constantly, with each player taking the lead at various points.

The turning point came when Foxen’s ace-high flush dominated Wilson’s queen-high flush in a preflop all-in, leaving Brock Wilson with just five big blinds. Wilson’s subsequent exit with ace-king against Peters’ queen-ten, where a queen on the flop sealed his fate, led to a heads-up battle between Peters and Foxen that lasted just 10 minutes.

Kristen Foxen

Starting the heads-up with double Foxen’s chips, Peters quickly leveraged his advantage with several steals. On the final hand, Foxen’s all-in with jack-ten was snap-called by Peters with ace-four. The flop revealed an ace, essentially securing Peters’ victory as Foxen needed a runner-runner to stay in the game. The turn was a blank, and with that, Foxen finished second for $204,750 while Peters celebrated his second win of the series.
