Whenever, and wherever, there is a High Roller tournament, there is one name who is never missing from the players list, and that is the name of David Peters. Given the nickname ‘The Silent Assasin’ he has been grinding both real money poker games online- and live since 2003 but became active in 2006 where he started playing in all major events in the United States and overseas. With being number 6 of the all-time money list of the world, David is truly a grandmaster of the poker scene in terms of cashes.
Poker Career - How It All Started
David Peters first got in touch with poker, as many other players did, when the American amateur poker player Chris Moneymaker became the World Champion of Poker, by qualifying into the 2003 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event for just $86. It was this moment that David decided to give it a go on the virtual tables by grinding freeroll tournaments. Not long after he won his first freeroll tournament for $600 and from then onwards he never looked back.
By watching poker a lot on TV back in the days, he became very interested in the game. After his win in the freeroll, he put himself the goal to master the sit ‘n go games online. He got instantly hooked with the game and by studying his games from a very young age, he convinced himself that this is something he could do for a living. It is also something he gives as an advice to younger players who are dreaming of the same road he has taken to become so glorious in poker. ‘’Do not get too cocky in the beginning, take becoming a better player very seriously, and do no expect that big wins become standard. It is a very cruel game sometimes’’.
It is all poker players dream to play the biggest and hardest tournaments of the world and this always has been the ambition of David as well. Not only becoming a regular in such tournaments, but also the be a feared competitor for his opponents. Unfortunately, the D-Day for American poker came with ‘Black Friday’ and Peter was hugely affected by it as he had a lot of money locked up on his online accounts.
In that time, not even sure he was getting it back. Because of the block on online poker, he turned himself into a live games grinder and went travelling overseas as much as possible. Basically, the first year after Black Friday he only played live events. Soon after, he decided to move abroad to be able to play online poker again. Canada became his home ground, after he was missing online poker a lot. Online poker is in general for a poker professional a very good factor to induce the variance of the game, so it did for David.
Other Interests Than Poker
David Peter is known to be a very easy-going guy in the poker circuit. Away from the tables David is no other than that. Hanging out with friends, family and his wife is what he adores to do. He likes to watch sports, movies play basketball and so on. As you can imagine, going around the world for poker, David is also travelling most of the time. Somewhat which he loves to do. Getting in touch with different cultures and exploring new areas of the world is a nice add-on to his personal life, gained from his poker life.
