Third WSOP bracelet win for Peters
 

On Sunday night, the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Event #25: $7,777 NLH Lucky 7's High Roller proved to be a mammoth affair, with 151 entries (113 players, 38 rebuys) powering the prize pool into the seven-figure territory, with $1,113,927 up for grabs.

The tournament was the largest buy-in event on the 2021 WSOP schedule, and after more than 10 hours of play, it was poker pro David "dpeters17" Peters coming out on top to win a $283,940 top prize and his third career bracelet.

Peters won his first WSOP online event he played in this series. It's no surprise to see Peters claim another first-place victory, as winning his third bracelet just adds to an already impressive resume which sees him currently sit seventh on the all-time money list with $34,806,289 in total live earnings, according to the Hendon Mob.

After Anthony "Nowb3Athat" Spinella was eliminated on the money bubble, the 36 remaining players started falling at a rapid pace.

Among the notables to cash were WSOP bracelet winner Arkadiy "Crocofantos" Tsinis (31st - $7,797), Jeremy "Chipchecka" Ausmus (26th - $8,9111), Jesse "Patient0" Yaginuma (13th - $12,587), Dylan "TheSmith" Smith (12th - $15,484), Ankush "Rickrosstheb" Mandavia (10th - $15,484), and Christopher "beturaise" Brewer (9th - $19,494).

The final table saw most players sitting fairly deep and with one of the larger first place prizes on the line, play was slow until Jason "EddieVedder" Koon, who was holding a little more than 10 big blinds, bowed out in eighth place after jamming from the small blind with a king-three suited only to be called by Galen "turkmalloy" Hall from the big blind, holding a pair of eights

Hall, one of the four WSOP bracelet winners at the final table, was next to go after he after losing most of his stack to Ryan "protential" Laplante, he jammed his short stack in the middle with ace-five off and Laplante finished him off with a pair of tens.

From there, "CherryHillPd" went on an elimination spree sending Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats home in sixth place with a pair of ladies and Joseph "GLOOTIE" Demestrio exited in fifth place after his snowen were melted.

Brandon "DrOctagon" Adams was next on the chopping block after he jammed preflop with an ace rag and was called by Peters holding a pair of queens. Adams couldn't find an ace and took a fourth-place finish for $84,547.

Laplante was chip leader for a good amount of the final table but was left with crumbs after he flopped a set of kings only to get straightened out by Peters on the river. The very next hand saw Laplante jam with ace-nine on the button and "CherryHillPd" isolated with hooks from the small blind. Laplante turned a wheel draw but couldn't find an ace or a deuce on the river and was gone in third place for $120,638.

The heads-up match proved to be a battle as both players rode the rollercoaster with each acquiring doubles until "CherryHillPd" grew short and had to settle for the $175,443 second-place prize.

Final Table Results
1 David "dpeters17" Peters $283,940
2 "CherryHillPd" $175,443
3 Ryan "protential" Laplante $120,638
4 Brandon "DrOctagon" Adams $84,547
5 Joseph "GLOOTIE" Demestrio $60,486
6 Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats $44,780
