Stevens followed up with a third-place finish in the GGPoker $840 High Rollers Marathon for $16,494 and 182.89 PLB points and a deep run in the $5,250 Sunday 500 on GGPoker for another $12,146 and 236.06 points, which made him reach the top spot.
Girafganger seems to be unstoppable as he continued his sunrun in the last night’s Sunday Grind.
Bert not only made the final table of the $2,625 High Rollers Blade Mulligan, but also shipped another major for a whopping $38,785.69 by defeating fellow online legend Rui “RuiNF” Ferreira heads-up.

Russian high stakes crack Artur Martirosian ships Sunday 500 High Rollers for $135,486.48
When speaking of online high stakes crushers the name Artur Martirosian can’t be done without.
Martirosian is making one final table after another and added another major victory in the Sunday 500 High Rollers at GGNetwork for an incredible $135,486.48.
Due to the high buy-in of $5,250, this tournament has an extremely tough field, which also reflects in the final table lineup with Isaac Haxton, Patrick “pads1161” Leonard, Ivan Zufic, David Coleman and Seth Davies.
The latter made it to heads-up, but had to admit defeat to Martirosian after a great battle. Davies’ Runner-Up finish was sweetened with a nice six-figure score though.
