Sunday Million

David Peters is running hot right now, and we have the proof. While last week he finished 16th in the Sunday Million, this week he won the lot, and a first prize of $143,000.

As Pauly McGuire reported for the Blog, run good is a powerful force, something his next opponents should bear in mind whether playing him live or online. Time will soon tell.

Here's the full result.
