EPT Budapest: Hope ends for two on the trot


He’s been peroxide blond, he’s been bright green, and today his hair was jet black. ElkY cuts a striking jib everywhere he plays and arrived this afternoon with the halo of success hovering above his head following his WPT win at Bellagio still a matter of hours ago. But any chance of carrying on where he left off and winning a second EPT title just ended after he crashed out courtesy of a set of sevens made on the flop, a hand that crushed his own holding.

Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier

His elimination seemed unlikely earlier today. The Frenchman had been up to 23,000 a few levels in. But a few bad hands would follow leaving him stranded with nothing more than all or nothing moves. Exit left for the Team PokerStars Pro.
