David Peat is a very aggressive cash game player

If you love to bet big money on poker tournaments, you might want to pay attention to David ‘Viffer’ Peat. This aggressive cash game player has a long history in the poker world, and his impressive list of live tournament results is impressive. His list includes EPT/WPT titles and WSOP bracelets. He has even sat down at the same table as the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Toby Maguire.

The name Viffer is more descriptive than his real name, and his YouTube videos reveal a quick decision-making style. This player typically plays big draws very aggressively and often crosses the way of other players. While many players believe there’s value in big semi-bluffs, the potential fold equity is extremely high, and it is better to play conservatively against a loose-passive opponent.

He is a very talkative player

Despite his unorthodox playing style, David Peat is a very talkative poker player, and his interviews often go viral. Peat’s most recent interview was published in Card Player magazine, on October 22, 2008. The article is p. 49. The talkative player claims to be owed thousands of dollars by a fellow poker pro. Peat’s claim seems to have merit, as it’s possible that the player may have received a bribe.

Aside from his very talkative play, David Peat also admits to being an avid party-goer. He admits to loving to shoot pool, hit the clubs, and hang out with friends and women in Las Vegas. He even made his living as a professional pool player before turning to poker. As a result, many people in the poker world call him a “Viffer.”

He is known for his “scandalous” behavior

There are several “scandals” surrounding David Peat in the poker world. One of these stories is about how Peat became a millionaire within a week after claiming to be broke and desperate. He claimed that in Las Vegas, money was easy to come by and that someone would stake him against a tourist with money he could beat. While his story is now settled, it did not stop his feud with fellow poker pro, Dan Cates.

The first incident involved David Peat. He was mugged while in Toledo, Ohio, and Detroit, Michigan. Peat told the agents that he was a poker player and had about $15,000 in cash. Peat was then chased down by the DEA agents and asked to come with them for questioning. The DEA agents confiscated his cash and a $50,000 Rolex watch. He was given a receipt and told to expect more information in the mail.

He is a very good player

There are many “scandals” surrounding Peat in the poker community. He was a member of Molly Bloom’s high-stakes cash game in New York City, which was made into a movie starring Aaron Sorkin. A-list celebrities frequented the game, and players included Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Toby Maguire, and many others.

While David Peat is known as a cash-game specialist, he has also had success in the tournament scene. His tournament record shows three cashes, including his first cash, in a $1,500 NL event in 2005. In 2008, he had two impressive finishes in WPT events. First, he finished 2nd in a $5,000 NL preliminary event at the Five-Star World Poker Classic, where he won $202,000. Then, he finished 7th in the WPT Mirage Poker Showdown, which he shared with Jonathan Little.

He is a party animal

Although many people think of Peat as a poker star, he’s not your typical professional. Despite his fame and fortune, he’s a true party animal. Peat admits to loving to party as much as playing poker. He enjoys hitting the clubs, shooting pool, and hanging out with friends. When not playing poker, he’s likely to be found chasing girls in Las Vegas. Prior to making it big as a poker pro, Peat made his living as a pool player.
