Dwyte Pilgrim vs David Peters: Who Is the Real DP?
Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Gavin Smith has negotiated an unusual last-longer bet between Dwyte Pilgrim and David Peters.
Gavin has seemingly declared out of nowhere that whichever player finished deeper in this event would forever have the right to call themself "The Real D.P." (As you may have noticed, the two players share the same initials.)
Keep in mind that all three players (Gavin, Pilgrim, and Peters) are all seated at different tables, but Gavin's voice is loud enough for everyone in the area to hear.
At first, it appears that neither player was much interested in Gavin's ramblings, but then Pilgrim says, "I'm the real D.P." When he hears that, Peters says, "Not so fast, Dwyte. How many chips do you have?" Pilgrim says he has about 230,000, and Peters admits he only has about 100,000.
Even though Pilgrim out-chips Peters by 2.3-to-1, Gavin says, "I still like your side of it, David."
J.C. Tran is at Gavin's table, and asks how David "The Dragon" Pham fits into all of this. Pham has more career earnings in live tournaments than Pilgrim and Peters put together -- and doubled. Gavin says, "David Pham? He's not a D.P. He's almost a D.F."
A short while later, Gavin negotiates a slight modification of the prize. Gavin says, "If David Peter wins, Dwyte can still use the moniker in any WSOP Circuit events that are held outside of the state of Ohio."
