His first place winning in WSOP that year was a whopping $9,152,416. Peter became the 9th person on record to win big prize money in a single win, and he became the first in Denmark’s all time money list beating his fellow Denmark poker big player, Gus Hansen. Peter also broke Phil “The Poker Brat” Hellmuth’s record of being the youngest WSOP big time winner at the age of 24. Peter was only 22 years old at that time. As of 2014 his total tournament earnings reach $11,131,450, placing him 17th in the all-time money list.
