David Peters

Just five players remain in Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty No-Limit Hold’em with a gold bracelet and $1,166,810 plus bounties slated to head the eventual winner’s way.

Leading the pack of elite poker pros is Chance Kornuth (14,265,000) who, thanks to a heater on Day 2 that saw him eliminate Daniel Negreanu among others, has put some distance between himself and the other four players. Closest to catching him is David Peters (8,920,000) who built up a large stack during bubble play courtesy of a huge confrontation with Koray Aldemir (860,000) whose flopped set of eights fell to the rivered straight of Peters. Rounding out the final five are Ali Imsirovic (1,815,000) and Dario Sammartino (1,740,000).
