Christophe Benzimra is PS EPT Warsaw Winner

The PokerStars European Poker Tour Warsaw event has a winner.  There were 203 players in all at the Casino Poland this week all vying for a piece of the prize pool.  But after almost a week there was only player left sitting at the felts.
The winner is Christophe Benzimra who beat Alfio “aLFioSn0b” Battisti heads up to take the title for himself and the fifth ever win for his country.  The final table consisted of 8 players that got down to business shortly after 1:00pm today.
Less then 15 minutes into the final table play Anatoly Gurtovoy was sent home in 8th place and then just a few minutes later Alexander Klimashin’s pocket 9’s didn’t hold up and he was taken out.
After that things started to settle down and the final 6 players relaxed a bit but eventually all went home but Benzimra and when asked about poker he said, “To me poker is more about having fun than making money.”
But I imagine it’s a lot more fun when you take home a check for 1,439,170PLN and a €10,000 entry into the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo next month.  PokerStars is still running satellites but you must be a member to win so take advantage of the new player bonus of 100% up to $600 dollars on your first deposit.
