Peter Eastgate became the youngest player ever to win a WSOP Main Event last year. Aside from the event bracelet, the 9.1 million dollars and all the fame and glory he got from winning the biggest and most prestige full poker tournament in the world, he continues playing great poker and taking down new tournaments...

273 players bought in to PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) $5,000 side event which had a first place prize of $343.000. When the final table was down to 5 players Eastgate had a big chip lead and it didn't take long before the final table was down to only two players. Peter Eastgate and Florian Langmann, who placed second in EPT London back in 2007.

The final hand occurred when Eastgate picked up a pair of kings and went all-in and got called by Florian's pocket Jacks. The kings stood up and the 22 year old Dane once again proved that he deserves to be the World Champion.

Final Table:
1. Peter Eastgate $343 000 (picture, left)
2. Florian Langmann $184 300 (picture, right)
3. Antoine Berube $133 500
4. Tyler Cameron Hamade $95 300
5. Terrence Chan $70 000
6. Jakob Karlsson $57 200
7. Bruce Yamron $44 500
8. Justin Bonomo $31 600
9. Jan-Christoph Von Halle $25 500
