Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier

We missed the elimination of Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, but Paul Newey was kind enough to fill us in on some details.

As he told it, the 2008 PCA champ shoved all in from the big blind for his last 4,500 after the under-the-gun player had raised. His opponent called and the hands were turned up.

Grospellier: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

It looked like it was going to be a chop, but the {j-}{6-Diamonds}{2-} flop gave Grospellier's opponent a freeroll to running diamonds. Unfortunately for France's all-time money leader, that's exactly what happened when the turn and river came diamond-diamond.
