The newest addition to the team.  Signature. Illustration.GGPoker, which has grown quickly over the past couple of years, added another well-known name to their list of sponsored players earlier today.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, who has over $14 million in total live tournament cashes, is the newest addition to the GGPoker team. With this signing, "ElkY" joins Daniel Negreanu, Bryn Kenney and Felipe Ramos as GGPoker ambassadors.

While Pokerstars has been clearly cutting back on their sponsorships over the past couple of years, sites like GGPoker and partypoker have gone in the opposite direction. GGPoker now has one of the most impressive stables of sponsored talent, including the all-time tournament money leader (Kenney) and the #3 player on the all-time tournament money list (Daniel Negreanu).


"ElkY" was a long-time sponsored player at Pokerstars before the two sides had a rather acrimonious split, with "ElkY" clearly being unhappy with how things went down.

In April of 2018, "ElkY" signed a deal with partypoker to become an .eu ambassador.

Two years later and "ElkY" has decided to make the move to GGPoker.


"ElkY" has quite the resume as a poker player. In fact, he is one of only a handful of players to have a WSOP bracelet, WPT title and European Poker Tour title.


Here is what "ElkY" had to say about the signing:
