U.S. American Reuben Peters Wins EPT Dublin, Annette Obrestad, a Girl, Finishes Second

Reuben_peters_dub4Reuben Peters, a 45-year-old father of two from Colorado, has won the EPT Dublin, besting a field of mostly European players with unnecessary letters in their names to take home €532,620. He also earns a spot at the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo next year.

Peters, whose name comes oh so close to Davidson Matthew status, started the day as one of the shortstacks but doubled early and eventually found himself heads-up against WSOPE champion Annette Obrestad, a girl. The Norwegian teen phenom, who had already taken out four of her final table opponents, held a nearly 4-to-1 chip advantage over the U.S. American when it came to heads-up play but like a wife at Target on a Saturday afternoon, or Monday after work, or whenever, Obrestad ended up squandering her lead away on useless crap. She finally saw her run towards another European championship come to an end when she called Peters' all-in with pocket sevens on a board of 10-6-3. With A-10 in the pocket, Peters would hold on to win the hand and EPT Dublin main event.

With her runner-up finish, Obrestad wins €297,800, putting her ahead of Jennifer Harman on the list of all-time women money winners. Only two other women, Kathy Liebert and Annie Duke, have won more than Obrestad's $2,052,688 in career tournament winnings. Not turning 21 until September 2009, Obrestad still won't make her WSOP debut on American soil until the summer of 2010.
