The 2016 $1500 No Limit Holdem Poker tourney was won by Swedish Poker Player Peter Eichhardt. Age really has nothing to do with it in this case. He’s 50 and the runner up 69! He started playing poker as a hobby but later took it more seriously. He has entered the WSOP Main Event eight times but has never cashed. He collects $439,255.
At the victory hand, he held king jack hearts. His opponent, Davis Aalvik, had king nine unsuited. The flop showed three hearts giving Eichhardt his massive victory. Aalvik settled for second place and $270,842.
Eichhardt is also a part time writer and worked in a casino in St. Petersburg in the 90s. Scenarios from this period give him most of his stories that basically crime stories. The tournament ran one day longer than expected. There were 2,016 entries with a total prize pool of $2,7721,600.

Peter Eichhardt $439,255
