Veteran poker player Tobias Peters has finally won a World Series of Poker gold bracelet after 11 years of trials and tribulations.
The Dutchman took down WSOP Europe Event #7: €1,650 NL Hold’em 6-max for a payday of €143,100. Not the biggest winners prize we’ve seen at the WSOP but that gold bracelet will mean everything to Peters.
The one-day event went on until around 6am the following morning when Barny Boatman of Hendon Mob fame was defeated, the last of the 495 entries that stood in the way of Peters from claiming his life’s goal.
The top three finishers also won an entry ticket for the 2023 WSOP Europe Main Event.
Speaking after his victory, Peters said:
"I didn't care about the €200,000 [his prize from the Colossus]. The sixty thousand was nice, but I wanted the bracelet. The day after, I jumped into the Six-Max, and then I won the bracelet.
"But for this one, I really didn't care about the money. I only cared about the bracelet because I didn't have it. I already finished in almost every spot on the final table in WSOP tournaments.
"In any other tournament, I would put my chips in much earlier because the money jumps were not important to me at that stage. But just because it was a bracelet event, I was so careful with my chips and I really wanted to stay alive as long as possible."
