Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier Looking for Second EPT Title

Watch EPT 6 Barcelona: Welcome to Barcelona
Day 3 is underway at the EPT Barcelona, and Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier is among the big stacks.

ElkY first burst(?) onto the live poker scene by coming second in the EPT Copenhagen event in January 2007, then winning the EPT PokerStars Caribbean Adventure a year later. A win here would likely cement the Frenchman as the EPT equivalent of what Gus Hansen was to the WPT early on, and make him the unquestioned best French tournament circuit player today.

Fuck France.

Mike McDonald and Roland de Wolfe are also still alive. Lex Veldhuis was eliminated yesterday. Get full chip counts here.

In somewhat related news, the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic is on Day 1B. Follow here.

    France, always there when they need us to save their asses from the Germans. (except of course those gutless Frenchies that surrender immediately and suck German balls.

    Nice work, that Maginot Line, by the way.

    “Why are the streets of France lined with trees? So the Germans can march in the shade.”

    Q: How many Frenchmen does it take to defend Paris?
    A: Nobody knows, it’s never been tried.

    By the way, “uncultured?” I guess it is “cultured” to not use deodorant and for your women not to shave their underarms and legs. No thanks.

    I wondered about this during the World Cup in 2006. If the German team had not been eliminated in the semi-final, and got to face the France in the Final, would the Frenchies have surrendured before the start?

    HEY, what happened to this comment?: “Yeah, because “Fuck You too” is a very cultured response. Go away frog!” I wanted to read the silly banter between the 15 yo teens.
