$10million Man Bert 'girafganger7' Stevens Bags EPT Online Double

Records were bound to be set, or even broken, as PokerStars took their iconic EPT series online for the first time in its history, and Bert girafganger7 Stevens grabbed his share of it by taking his second title in just three days – a $186,238 scoop of the $10k Turbo High Roller…

The Belgian former number 1 ranked online MTT player, became the first player to take down two online events, having recently also crossed the $10million online earnings barrier.

Stevens had bagged the $2100, 8-max NLHE midweek, pocketing $87,984 after a heads-up deal with Alexandros 'Pwndidi' Theologis, and yesterday he was back in the mix as the $10k Turbo 6-max came to a conclusion.

The 69 entries were whittled down to a final table stacked with crushers, Belarus beast Mikita 'fish2013' Badziakouski looking for his own second title of the week, with Hungarian maestro Laszlo 'omaha4rollz' Bujtas showing his skill at two cards to go with his PLO mastery.

It was Stevens, however, who would land four crushing blows to see off his illustrious rivals, his pocket 8’s seeing off Bujtas’ middling ace in a race, Ukraine’s BoldSergey toppled by flopped trips, and Badziakouski’s jacks falling to a flopped ace.

That left Australian highroller specialist Michael 'Imluckbox' Addamo between Stevens and a double for the record books, and the very first hand of heads-up decided the battle…
