Bert "girafganger7" Stevens Wins the EPT Online 08: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max] ($87,984)
Just 15 players started the day, and it took less than four hours to crown a winner in the PokerStars EPT Online 08: $2,100 NLHE [8-Max]. Bert "girafganger7" Stevens defeated Alexandros "Pwndidi" Theologis heads-up for $87,984 after agreeing to a deal to share the lion-share of the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Stevens has only recently been revealed as the person behind the famous nickname with over $10,000,000 in lifetime online cashes with almost $8,000,000 of them coming from the PokerStars virtual tables. This score here today jumps into the eighth spot of his top ten of online results. For Theologis, this is his fourth-biggest score on the PokerStars felt.
Other well-known players who reached the final table included Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood, Audrius "Stakelis24" Stakelis, Day 1 chip leader "efkinis24", and Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker.

"RaulGonzalez" Wins EPT Online 09: $5,200 8-Game [High Roller]
The mixed-game dominance of the mystery player known only as "RaulGonzalez" continues on PokerStars.
The German account took down EPT Online 09: $5,200 8-Game [High Roller] in a field of 51 entries on just a single entry, scooping up $100,050 in prize money and an EPT trophy.
While that can be won by RaulGonzalez in a day's work at the nosebleed mixed-game tables they frequently haunt, it will still undoubtedly be a welcome development. And the win comes on the heels of shipping the World Championship of Online Poker $10,300 8-Game just two months ago for $235,531.
