Sam Grafton wins the PokerStars Festival Bucharest Main Event Title


Sam Grafton won the PokerStars Festival Bucharest Main Event Title for €117,707 on Sunday evening. Grafton was characteristically gracious after the event.

“I feel very proud,” Grafton said afterwards. “I’ve been playing PokerStars events for a long time, trying to win one for around six years. To finally win one feels amazing.

“Back then, I didn’t really realise what it takes to win a tournament, how rare it can be in your career. In the past, I didn’t value the runs I made, but now I know how difficult it is to win a live tournament. It feels amazing.”

Congratulations Sam. Let’s go for another beer and let you make another premonition that will then come true. The Barcelona Main Event, perhaps?
