EPT Berlin: Moorman leading High Roller, ElkY chasing
The EPT Berlin heads up is playing out under the glare of the TV cameras in the main tournament but Davidi Kitai and Andrew Chen aren't the only ones playing for big money. Just a few yards away is the €10,000 High Roller with four, no three, players remaining. David 'dpeters' Peters had been short despite doubling with A♥4♠ versus the 2♣J♦ that Chris Moorman was obliged to call with. It was Peters last 32,000 with the blinds going up to 4,000-8,000. It was a brief respite for Peters who was flipped off out by Marvin Rettenmaier shortly after, his pocket sixes failing to hold against the German's [a][t].
That leaves three players; Moorman (750,000), Rettenmaier (500,000) and Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier (400,000). After finally winning his first live tournament in March in a €2,000 side event at EPT Madrid, is Moorman going to go on a live streak?
ElkY is a player with form when it comes to these High Rollers, he's won three of them already for a combined win of $1,439,808. You can never write off the bleach blonde Frenchman.
