Online Poker Prodigy Wins WPT Event
By Staff
Online players are now making more and more of an impact on the live poker scene as Tom “durrr” Dwan and Brian Townsend battle it out in televised cash games. Furthering this, Bertrand Grospellier, better known by his online handle of ‘ElkY,’ has taken down the WPT Festa al Lago; demolishing a six-handed final table and taking a $1,400,000 prize.

The hand which saw third-place finisher Dardon eliminated also showed that you have to be lucky to win these tournaments. Grospellier moved in with T2s only to be called by Dardon's AJo, but the flop brought a deuce for the Frenchman and two clubs for Dardon. Fourth and fifth street saw Grospellier fade the fifteen outs for his opponent, and it was then left for him to convert his 15 to 1 chip lead into the WPT title and $1.4m first place prize.
