Benger also had a 9th place finish at the EPT Berlin in the €2,000 No Limit Hold’em Event which paid him €9,200. In addition to his victory in Berlin, Griffin Benger just last month had a series of three final table cashes at the EPT/UK & Ireland Poker Tour in London including a 1st place finish that paid him £ 33,290.
