EPT9 Berlin: Button bashing Joe Kuether bags €36,500

Joe Kuether has picked up an EPT trophy and €36,500 in Berlin taking the American to $1.25m in live career winnings. It's Kuether second cash of the festival having min-cashed in, and quickly then bust from, the €3,000 Berlin Cup High Roller (which Micah Raskin went on to win).

David Yan, who has been helping out a lot this week in the EPTLive webcast, also picked up a final table finish for €5,600. Call it skill or karmic payback, Yan deserves a result from this week. Thanks for the help.
