Team GGPoker revealed that they have added Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier to their PRO gang earlier today. Here’s more on the story.
French poker and esports legend ElkY has over $14.5M in live tournament earnings. Now, he’s excited to represent GGPoker as he takes this next step in his career.
“I am excited to join GGPoker, the most ambitious poker site,” says ElkY. “With clear focus on software and making poker fun again, there has never been a better place to play online poker.”
The Many Accomplishments of ElkY
Before ElkY turned his attention to poker, he was well-known for shaking the world of Starcraft and various other esports. Even moving from his birthplace of Melun, France to South Korea to become one of the country’s top pros.
Like many other accomplished poker players who transitioned between esports, ElkY soon found success in poker. ElkY was the first player to reach “Supernova” and “Supernova Elite” statuses on PokerStars. This is no easy feat, yet he has a legendary ability to grind long hours at difficult tables and games.
Along with his long list of accolades, ElkY is one of a few players to have poker’s Triple Crown. He has World Poker Tour (WPT) and European Poker Tour (EPT) titles, plus, two WSOP bracelets. So we should see him alongside Daniel Negreanu at this year’s WSOP Super Circuit on GGPoker.
“Team GGPoker continues to go from strength to strength”
ElkY will join Daniel Negreanu, Bryn Kenney and Felipe Ramos - also GGPoker ambassadors. Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker says Team GGPoker grows even stronger and that “having ElkY on board just amplifies this even more.”
He added that “With a poker and esports legend like ElkY representing our brand, the GGPoker community will be in for a real treat - all I can recommend is to watch this space!”
You can expect ElkY to keep the whole GGPoker community on their toes with the best poker content. In fact, he’s already planning to stream tournaments on GGPoker and engage fans on Twitch. So get ready to feel all the highs and lows of this game we love so much.
