Bertrand Grospellier

Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier is no stranger to final tables and here he is at another one. The French professional is one of the most well known faces in poker and has a laundry list of accolades to back up his game.

In all, the man everyone calls "ElkY" has over $9 million in live tournament earnings. His largest win came back in 2008 when he took down the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for a cool $2 million. On top of that, Grospellier won the World Poker Tour Festa Al Lago in 2008 for over $1.4 million and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in 2011 for $331,639 to make him one of the few Triple Crown achievers in poker. When it comes to high roller events, Grospellier crushes. Just take a look at the following wins on his resumé.

  • 2009 PCA $25,000 High Roller — 1st for $433,500
  • 2011 EPT Grand Final Madrid €25,000 High Roller — 1st for €525,000
  • 2011 EPT Grand Final Madrid €10,000 High Roller Turbo — 1st for €153,000
  • 2012 EPT Berlin €10,000 High Roller — 1st for €231,000

Finishing in the top two spots today would put ElkY over $10 million in lifetime earnings and we all know he plays to win. He'll enter the final table fourth in chips with slightly under an average stack.
