Grospellier Wins Triple Crown

June 20, 2011

Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier is one poker pro who has made it a priority to participate in the 2011 World Series of Poker. He is also the fourth poker pro to win the live “Triple Crown”— European Poker Tour, World Poker Tour, and World Series of Poker titles after winning 2011 WSOP Event #21, the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship early Wednesday morning at the Rio All Suite in Las Vegas.

This win landed him a $331,639 payout for his first place victor. Grospellier follows British pro Jake Cody, also a Triple Crown winner, who won Event #2, the $25,000 Heads-Up No Limit Hold ‘em Championship. Other Triple Crown winners include Gavin Griffin and Roland de Wolfe.

Not long after his win, Grospellier tweeted: “Soooo sick, finally did it after five years of the WSOP!! Thanks so much for the support and best wishes!”

ElkY’s other Triple Crown titles include a January 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event title and a $2 million win. Later in October of that same year, he took down the WPT Festa Al Lago title and $1.4 million. Now his June 2011 WSOP win makes it official.
