Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier Wins Second WSOP Bracelet


Partypoker professional Bertrand Grospellier, aka “ElkY,” came out successful at the Giant last table on Monday. The French poker star who formerly represented PokerStars won the last of 104 gold WSOP bracelets in 2019.

“ElkY” also helped fellow PokerStars Team Pro member Daniel Negreanu win WSOP Player of the Year. “Kid Poker” needed Shaun Deeb to finish outside the top five in the €550 Colossus to secure his third POY title. Grospellier busted him early on the final day in 11th place.

All eyes were on Deeb on Monday. Could he make it right into the leading five in the Colossus and take the POY title from Negreanu? The answer, as we have actually already stated, is no. He was the initial elimination of the last 2019 WSOP Europe session, and also took home EUR13,564.

As soon as Deeb exited King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, the emphasis resorted to Partypoker pro Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, the greatest remaining celebrity and one of the leading players in the video game.

“ElkY” was at one point on Monday down to just eight big blinds. But a couple of fortunate double-ups later and he was back in contention.

“Once I won the two all-ins it put me into the lead and I had a good run after that and I am really happy with the result,” the Partypoker ambassador said in his post-game interview.

By the time “ElkY” was heads-up for the arm band, he had regarding a 1.5-1 chip advantage over Avraham Dyan. He never gave up that lead as well as completed his challenger off with pocket 10’s all-in pre-flop against A-10. The board ran out 7-4-2-3-4, excellent for Grospellier.
