Earlier this week France poker player ElkY (AKA Bertrand Grospellier) swooped up the 2008 Caribbean PokerStars tournament title along with a nice cash win of $2,000,000.00. After outlasting a field of poker players 1,136 players ElkY found himself heads up in the tournament against another very well known poker player Hafiz Kahn, a 33 year old poker player from Northern California. During a tournament changing hand, Elky trapped Kahn into a pot holding a set and swooped up just about a million five in tournament chips.
In another hand, ElkY (PokerStars first ever SuperNova Poker Player, as well as the first ever SuperNova Elite poker player) came out with a raise, Kahn pushed back, shoving all of his chips into the middle. ElkY made the call with a made hand before the flop. The eights held up and ElkY won the tournament.
“The entire trip has been one thrilling experience after another Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and now IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m returning home as the 2008 PCA Champion. This was definitely one of the hardest tournaments IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever played. It was a very tough field with a lot of online American qualifiers who played really well. But I really wanted this title and I would have been very disappointed not to win. ” Said ElkY in regards to his latest win.
