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.
