Griffin-Benger-EPT-BerlinOn Saturday, Griffin Benger from Toronto captured a victory in the highroller event at the Berlin stop of the European Poker Tour, bagging €429,000. 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.

It is the largest live score of his career, trumping his previous largest score by over half of a million U.S. dollars, and his second career first-place finish. Benger defeated Aaron Lim heads up.  Lim recently won the 2013 APPT Seoul Main Event and a bracelet at the 2013 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific, earned €240,100.

What made the victory even more special for Benger is that it came on his 28th birthday. Griffin is also a member of Team Ivey Poker.

Congratulations Griffin !!
