2009 PCA: The defending champ speaks

So, 2008 wasn't everybody's best year. I think we can all agree on that.

For Team PokerStars Pro Betrand "ElkY" Grospellier, the doldrums and crashes of last year don't apply. He kicked off the year by winning $2 million in the 2008 PCA. By year's end, he'd won a WPT event.

What bad economy?

Now, ElkY is back to defend his title. He spent a little time with our video blogging crew talking about his win and what it meant to him.
