I achieved that by winning the WSOP main event in The period following has taken me on a worldwide tour, where I have seen some amazing places and met many new people; it has been a great experience.
What this will be, I do not yet know. I have decided to take a break from live tournament poker, and try to focus on Peter Eastgate, the person.
I want to thank PokerStars, my friends and family for their support over the last 20 months, and for their support in my decision to take a break from poker.
I moved from London back to Denmark in and I tried to study bio-medicine. But if you look at it from the outside, it would sure look boring.
I need to set some goals, find a passion one way or the other. Back in I retired for about eight months , then played a few events, and that was it.
My spending levels are the same as of any regular guy, so I have money for the next 70 or 80 years. Peter is a nationally recognised expert in all aspects of trust law including charitable trusts as well as being a senior specialist in the areas of Wills, estate and succession law, elder law, the law of attorneyship and asset protection.
He provides advice on complex estate and trust matters to clients throughout New Zealand and overseas, and to other professionals within the Canterbury area.
None of those attempts ultimately panned out with a long-term change to Eastgate's life. I had four exams and flunked each one of them, which told me that I wasn't equipped to handle this profession.

But it simply wasn't my thing, so I dropped that as well. Today, Eastgate lives a quiet life in Denmark. Some believe he is broke, depressed or lonely.
But Eastgate is still living comfortably off of his WSOP main event earnings with a very humble existence and simply enjoying life.
I'm still safely economically independent," Eastgate said. The way I live my life, I could live my life like this for another years. To others, it seems like a big mystery when I have to account for all the times I have done nothing.
From the outside, it seems incredibly boring, but I'm thriving. I'm not depressed by any means. I really like the exercise, although I'm just strolling.
I also often hang out with several close friends. Overall, I'm very unproductive -- just imagine a Sunday, and I live that every day of the week, but I'm enjoying myself.
When he looks back at what he accomplished in the poker world, Eastgate still has pride in his past achievements and poker-playing ability -- and ultimately, he's not concerned with people's opinions of him and his lifestyle choices.
For me, it was mostly about the money, not being recognized for your results. Peter Eastgate was just 22 when he managed to attain the peak of the success in the poker game before his career was really started.
