Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier, one of the world’s strongest tournament players, will be pictured on the latest cover of Card Player Magazine.
The French-born poker pro has been one of the key members of PokerStars sponsored team over the past year. He is known by many as the latest man to achieve the legendary status of a Triple Crown winner, made up of victories in the main events of 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and the 2008 World Poker Tour Festa al Lago. The final jewel in the winning trio came this past summer, when he snagged a first place finish in the $10,000 seven-card stud championship at the World Series of Poker.
In total, the 32-year-old has earned more than $9,300,000 during his playing career, which places him solidly within the top twenty. And, with many years still ahead of him, the young pro has plenty of time to climb the charts. These topics and more will be covered in the latest issue of the magazine.
According to the Card Player‘s website, other drawing cards for the issue include “interviews with David Diaz, Jake Cody, who also finished off the Triple Crown this summer, Thomas Keller and Nam Le, as well as columns from respected poker minds like Todd Brunson, Roy Cooke, Steve Zolotow, Ed Miller, Jeff Hwang and Alan Schoonmaker.”
