Peter Eastgate has since he won the WSOP Main Event 3 years ago already stopped playing poker once, then returned to the poker scene again and sold his WSOP bracelet on Ebay. There has been a lot of things going on in Eastgate's life since the big win in 2008, and it doesn't seem like he has any problem to spend the money he won.
In an interview with a Swedish poker magazine, Peter Easgate says that he's hooked on sports betting and that it has costed him a significant amount of money. For example, he lost 1.7 million dollars during the World Cup of Soccer last year. However, East Gate says that he has stopped playing for that kind of money - mostly thanks to a method he invented himself.
"If I bet more than $2,000 on a game, I have to pay $20,000 to 4 of my friends. Because of this I take better care of my money and lately I haven't betted as much as I used to", says Peter Eastgate
