Poker Pro Peter Eastgate Jumps Into Ice Cold Harbor

Danish poker pro Peter Eastgate took the plunge into the icy waters of the Copenhagen harbor this week.

Eastgate, the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event winner, accepted a $6000 bet to jump into the freezing cold water then run home 2.6 miles in his soaking wet clothing. 

Pokernyhederne.com, which released the below video, reports that the bet took place over the weekend during a Christmas party.  No word on whether alcohol was involved, though we suspect it probably was.
