Interview with Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier on his Second WSOP Bracelet Win

Tags: Bertrand Grospellier, ElkY, Rozvadov, WSOP Europe, WSOPE.
Posted on 15 November 2019 by "T".

Team partypoker pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier recently secured his second WSOP bracelet after outlasting a field of 2,738 players in the WSOP Europe Colossus €550 buy-in event in Rozvadov for €190,375. This latest win takes his lifetime live poker tourney earnings to nearly $14 million.

The French poker pro shares his sentiments about his latest victory with partypoker.

"The World Series of Poker Europe at King's Resort is always a very special event for me. Not only is it, of course, the biggest European tournament series of the year, but also playing at King's feel like a home advantage for me.

It is the third year that I've played this festival, and the last two have been very disappointing, results-wise, which is not surprising at all in the grand scheme of things, considering the predominant part of the variance in poker tournaments.

Poker is a wonderful game, which forces us to develop a lot of important skillsets to succeed, like mastering our emotions and accepting the part randomness plays in everything, especially in the short term. Also, detaching yourself from the result of a decision is probably the hardest and most counterintuitive one.

As a matter of fact, the tournaments you bust early are usually the ones in which you make the least mistakes, simply because they are the ones where you played the least hands. It can appear so strange for everyone else, that during the Colossus event, which I ended up fortunate enough to win for my second career gold bracelet, I made more mistakes than in any other tournament of the series, even though I constantly tried to play my best.

This win obviously felt amazing, and it is a testament to the craziness of the game we all love, as it is the one I was least likely to win considering the sheer size of the field. It also shows to everyone out there who hasn't had the expected results lately that dedication and perseverance will eventually be rewarded in poker.

I will now enjoy a few days celebrating and resting before seeing you guys at the Caribbean Poker Party in The Bahamas!"

since the player is now very popular with him, there are quite a lot of different offers for interviews from television journalists and various sites from the Internet .... therefore when the line comes to our site it seems to me that he will definitely answer our questions .... you just have to wait a bit man .... he is very busy as I understand it after his successes and he does not have much free time

Congrats to this guy, I am sure he deserved this win - my only nitpick is that awful 'midlife crisis-style' neon blonde haircut which never looks good on any male older than sixteen and generally just a bad choice among other bad choices of how to look insane, but I guess he does not care about things like that...

to beat 2738 players,no matter on freeroll,big buy in tournament,live tournament,its not easy and you need to have skill to do that,so this win is big success for him and its not so much about money for him,he want more this bracelet and ofcourse he deserved it!congratulation to elky!thats why he probably dont have time to answer on our questions for interview and now we can see that we made great choice on him!

I also thought that it was interview with bankrollmob lol Big Smile I am patiently waiting for that one but in the mean time I want to say him a very big congrats and yes it is very true what he mentioned, it is when you play very few hands and make no mistake that you get out early more frequently and also when you play more and make mistakes but get lucky and win huge pots and go deep...

Every professional player has good tournaments or very weak periods. Bertrand Grospellier ( ElkY ) he also suffered this thing but now he has recovered with a good win. Dedication and perseverance do not lead to winning the tournament every time but when you do it, you have to win big for greater satisfaction.

and if the truth beyond having played, defeated so many players and get a nice cash prize, many are more excited to have been able to achieve this, win the event and have the bracelet that sometimes represents this for a person who the money there could win Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

I think that interview has to wait a little bit because this guy looks extremely busy right now.

Well if we would wait that he finish his tournaments,then we would wait for long time!soon will be caribbean poke tour,probably he will play it and after that who know it!so he could take few minutes for our questions and we get answers before end of year!

Not necessarily. Even if Bertrand ElkY Grospellier has won a large amount of money, he can easily give an interview. It's not hard because he won't celebrate this succes until he spends all his money which he won in the last tournament. Anyway, i'm not in a hurry to see this interview, but i don't know when it will be.

How do you know that for sure in such detail?
Promo interviews are usually go through a lot of hoops (mainly with the help of PR and marketing people) by the time you'd read them so it's not that easy to set this up IMO.
 pajalnick20/11/2019 18:20:50 GMT
you just have to wait a bit ... of course the interviews are handed down according to a certain schedule ... who contacted earlier or the more weighty the media that interviews .... with whom the release speed of this interview is more important .... so you probably have to wait a bit to to find out the answers to your questions .... Okay
