David "dpeters17" Peters Claims Third Bracelet in WSOP Online Event #25: $7,777 NLH Lucky 7's High Roller ($283,940)

David Peters

On Sunday night, the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Event #25: $7,777 NLH Lucky 7's High Roller proved to be a mammoth affair, with 151 entries (113 players, 38 rebuys) powering the prize pool into the seven-figure territory, with $1,113,927 up for grabs.

The tournament was the largest buy-in event on the 2021 WSOP schedule, and after more than 10 hours of play, it was poker pro David "dpeters17" Peters coming out on top to win a $283,940 top prize and his third career bracelet.

Peters won his first WSOP online event he played in this series. It's no surprise to see Peters claim another first-place victory, as winning his third bracelet just adds to an already impressive resume which sees him currently sit seventh on the all-time money list with $34,806,289 in total live earnings, according to the Hendon Mob.

6Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats$44,780
7Galen "turkmalloy" Hall$33,529
8Jason "EddieVedder" Koon$25,063

After Anthony "Nowb3Athat" Spinella was eliminated on the money bubble, the 36 remaining players started falling at a rapid pace.

Among the notables to cash were WSOP bracelet winner Arkadiy "Crocofantos" Tsinis (31st - $7,797), Jeremy "Chipchecka" Ausmus (26th - $8,9111), Jesse "Patient0" Yaginuma (13th - $12,587), Dylan "TheSmith" Smith (12th - $15,484), Ankush "Rickrosstheb" Mandavia (10th - $15,484), and Christopher "beturaise" Brewer (9th - $19,494).

Final Table Action

Final Table

The final table saw most players sitting fairly deep and with one of the larger first place prizes on the line, play was slow until Jason "EddieVedder" Koon, who was holding a little more than 10 big blinds, bowed out in eighth place after jamming from the small blind with a king-three suited only to be called by Galen "turkmalloy" Hall from the big blind, holding a pair of eights

Hall, one of the four WSOP bracelet winners at the final table, was next to go after he after losing most of his stack to Ryan "protential" Laplante, he jammed his short stack in the middle with ace-five off and Laplante finished him off with a pair of tens.

From there, Charles "CherryHillPd" Hook went on an elimination spree sending Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats home in sixth place with a pair of ladies and Joseph "GLOOTIE" Demestrio exited in fifth place after his snowen were melted.

Brandon "DrOctagon" Adams was next on the chopping block after he jammed preflop with an ace rag and was called by Peters holding a pair of queens. Adams couldn't find an ace and took a fourth-place finish for $84,547.

Ryan Laplante
Laplante Comes Up Short After Brutal Cooler

Laplante was chip leader for a good amount of the final table but was left with crumbs after he flopped a set of kings only to get straightened out by Peters on the river. The very next hand saw Laplante jam with ace-nine on the button and Hook isolated with hooks from the small blind. Laplante turned a wheel draw but couldn't find an ace or a deuce on the river and was gone in third place for $120,638.

The heads-up match proved to be a battle as both players rode the rollercoaster with each acquiring doubles until Hook grew short and had to settle for the $175,443 second-place prize.

The 2021 WSOP Online continues on Monday with Event #27: $1,000 PLO Championship. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.

WSOP Legend: 3-Time Poker Players Championship Winner Michael Mizrachi

Michael Mizrachi

The World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship (PPC), which was created in 2006, is considered the tournament where the best of the best take on one another and duke it out in a variety of poker games, a reflection of all-around poker skill. Imagine playing the likes of Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, and Daniel Negreanu five days in a row in a short-handed mixed format.

Needless to say, the hefty price tag coupled with a small, elite field created a legacy for the PPC where champions are considered among the greatest overall poker players. A quick glance at its 14-year history shows nothing but greatness among champions, from John Hennigan to Mike Gorodinsky, and with the late David "Chip" Reese as perhaps the event's most fitting inaugural winner back in 2006.

Winning once is the poker professional's dream. Winning two? You're in a league of your own. But winning the toughest event with poker's best three times? Only one man achieved that improbable feat on this day back in 2018, after winning his first two titles in 2010 and 2012: Michael Mizrachi.
