In This Week’s Episode:

After PokerStars removed SuperNova Elite, Bertie Bayley (who achieved SNE 3 times while being a pre-rakeback winner) took the “Renaissance Man” approach to poker by spreading out his play over many formats rather than specializing in just one.

You can find Bertie online playing under the handle “bigstealer” where he bounces between Spin & Gos, cash games, and tournaments. Most recently Bertie chopped a $1k Party Poker Powerfest event for $80,000.
