EPT kopenhagen: Oud-wereldkampioen Peter Eastgate over comeback

Peter Eastgate keerde deze week terug op de pokertour en wel in zijn eigen land op de EPT van Kopenhagen. De Deen die wereldkampioen werd in 2008 en 9,1 miljoen dollar won, stopte afgelopen zomer met pokeren. Hij zat er helemaal doorheen en kon niet meer van het spelletje genieten. Het vele reizen en de duizenden interviews die hij gaf werden hem te veel. Eastgate verkocht zijn World Series of Poker bracelet voor meer dan honderdduizend euro, waarna de opbrengst naar UNICEF ging. Na zijn grote succes in 2008 bleef de sterke Deen het geweldig doen op het toernooicircuit, vandaar dat zijn beslissing om te stoppen met pokeren veel mensen verbaasden in de pokerwereld. Een vakantie naar de Himalaya's hielp hem in ieder geval tot zichzelf te komen. Voor de camera's van PokerStars legt de Deen uit waarom hij stopte en snel terugkeerde.
