Girafganger7 – Between Genius and Madness

Girafganger7 is not only one of the best online poker tournaments players we have ever seen, but also in between genius and madness.

Girafganger7 - Between Genius and Madness

But that level of genius sometimes leaves an individual bordering on madness. That doesn’t appear to bother Bert “girafganger7” Stevens, though, because he tends to revel in this image with his frequent social media postings.

Check out the video in the tweet above where he nonchalantly picks out his opponent’s exact hand after correctly assuming that his king-high is good a lot of the time therefore not needing to bluff as air on the river.

The Belgian is one of poker’s special characters who lives in his own world—there really is nobody else like him in the space.

Check out this reaction as he is losing a pair vs overpair only to win with set over set on the river.

The genius level intellect does come with some drawbacks sometime, however. The other day, Stevens posted a behind the scenes look at his grind space, revealing a setup that had many thinking he was winding them up.

Surely this isn’t real, but yet it matches with the background from all of his Twitch Poker streams.

Former WSOP Main Event champion Espen Jørstad commented that he wants to know who designed his workspace and ACR Poker CEO Phil Nagy joked that it looks like his office.

Bert Stevens is also in the poker headlines frequently for winning high-profile events.

He was the first player to win two EPT Online events after taking down Event #8, a $2,100 NLHE 8-Max for $87,984 and Event #15: $10,300 NLHE 6-Max Turbo High Roller for $186,238 to write his name in the history books.

He also has a history of winning major titles on GGPoker, including the Super MILLION$ Main Event for $1,125,181 last December.
