European Poker Tour and Other Achievements

Grafton kicked off the 2021 EPT Prague in style, taking down the 10,200 NLHE Bounty High Roller. He beat online legend Niklas Astedt in heads-up play to claim the 80,360 up top as well as several 5,000 bounties.

A second high roller Spadie Trophy nearly went home with Grafton days later, but he was denied by Rodrigo Selouan in the 25,000 Single-Day High Roller IV event. Nevertheless, the runners-up prize of 220,050 made EPT Prague an event to remember for one of poker’s most jovial characters.

He won his first major poker title in 2021, taking down the GUKPT London Grand Final for 102,700 ($163,953).

He would then have to wait five years for his next marquee win, Grafton found success in Event #22 A$5,000 No Limit Hold’em - Six Max at the 2017 Aussie Millions Poker Championship. Six months later he won the 2017 PokerStars Festival Bucharest Main Event for 117,707.
