NeverScaredB nabs first live win at EPT Berlin
Ben Wilinofsky is hardly a recognizable name in the poker world, but his online screen-name of “NeverScaredB” is one of the most feared at the virtual tables, considering he has racked up nearly $1 million in online tournament wins since he burst onto the poker scene in early 2009.
Now the 22 year-old Canadian poker pro has his eyes set on the live tournament circuit, and this weekend he picked up his first live cash –and what a cash it was! Wilinofsky outlasted a very tough field of over 770 players to win the PokerStars EPT Berlin Main Event and pocket an impressive €825,000 in prize-money.
Wilinofsky came into the final table as the chip-leader but had his work cut out for him in the form of Team PokerStars Pro Joep Van Den Bijgaart from Holland, as well as Swedish sensation Martin Jacobson who was at his third EPT final table of the year, and fourth overall! In the end both Van Den Bijgaart and Jacobson were unable to overcome Wilinofsky –Joep finished in 7th place while Jacobson now has a 4th place finish to go along with two runner-up finishes this year—who cruised to the title after building a massive chip-lead.
Here is a look at how the final table participants fared at the EPT Berlin Main Event:
1. Ben Wilinofsky – €825,000
2. Maximilian Heinzelmann — €500,000
3. Vadzim Kursevich — €300,000
4. Martin Jacobson — €230,000
5. Armin Mette — €180,000
6. Darren Kramer — €140,000
7. Joep van den Bijgaart — €100,000
8. Jonas Gutteck — €66,000
