"ElkY" Breaks World Record

Tags: elky, EPT, PokerStars, World record.
Posted on 29 April 2009 by "M".

During day 1a of the EPT Grand Final a lot of attention was given to the jumbo screen where the final table would later be broadcasted.

In the middle of the spotlight Bertrand "ElkY" Grosspellier was sitting and playing online poker at PokerStars trying to break the world record for the number of SNGs played during an hour. In order to break the record he would have to end the session with a profit or the attempt would not count.

After the hours was up it stood clear that "ElkY" had in fact set a new world record with 62 Sit and Go's played during one hour. He ended the session with a $23.67 profit which made the record count.

Nice record but i don't think it's gonna last long... Boku87 could do more and with a better ROI.

It is really impressive! Elky grospellier is one of the best players nowadays. But i dont think that the record he did proves anything, only a rapid hand on the mouse, nothing more! What is really impressive are his poker skills and the money he earned!

This is great news! I never heard about this record: is it controlled by something like Guinness? Because if it is, this guy will award 5.000$ just for beating the record and more 1.250$ each month till the record is beatten. If this applies to this achievment, i think i will start investing my bankroll in multiple Max 6 players Turbo SnG's!!!! $$$ Smile$$$

What kind of sng was it? Do DoN count for the record too? Because I seen someone on youtube multi table 72 $20 DoNs, I'm not sure if he profited though.

By the way, there is no way this record will last
