Posted by Steve Ruddock on Oct 26, 2009 Posted in EPT News | No Comments »


Amidst a final table full of European Poker’s young-guns sat 47 year-old Cristophe Benzimra. Benzimra, who is quick to state he is not a professional player, was able to outlast some of Europe’s top poker pros including two ItalianTeam PokerStars Pros: Luca Pagano 4th place and Alfio Battisti 2nd place.

The win –which may change Benzimra’s amateur title—was worth a cool 358,000 Euro.

The top US finisher was PokerStars Pro Shaun Deeb, who finished in 22nd place. The hometown Polish fans lost their last player when Wojciech Polak went out in 23rd place –So the “Polska, Polska, Polska” chants came to an abrupt halt before the final table!

The EPT’s next stop will be in Vilamoura Portugal from November 17-22. Vilamoura is a big time vacation destination that will likely draw many of poker’s biggest names for the 5,000 Euro championship event.
