Peter Eastgate - Poker Profile: Representing Denmark

For a while there Peter Eastgate held a strong lead but ultimately landed in the 4th place position as he heads into November's 2008 World Series of Poker finale. 

Eastgate's poker profile is a little dull to say the least as he only had $84,346 winnings through his poker career, though that is on the "professional" circuit and Eastgate is known to play well back home.

This 22-year old comes to us from Odense, Denmark where he participated in the 2008 EPT Scandinavian Open (Copenhagen) - Season 4, coming in 32nd.

In a town where gambling, booze and strippers are available 24 hours a day, and the mayor doesn't mind if anyone sees him playing a one-arm bandit, it can be hard to be judgmental of others and their actions.

But a new low, even for a place as tawdry as Sin City, was achieved the other day at the 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) when a crowd of poker players and fans gave a standing ovation to a disgraced child molester!
