Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier Eliminated in 18th Place ($23,876)

Elky Grospellier eliminated in 18th place

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier raised to 40,000 in first position, committing close to half his stack. Alexander Venovski was next to act and he moved all-in for 108,000. A few folds later and the action stopped dead in its tracks at the seat of Jeff Tims.

"I am all-in," said Tims.

The action folded around to ElkY and he didn't like it one little bit.

"You can fold ElkY," said Venovski.

ElkY made the call and we had a three-way all-in with Tims covering both stacks.

Venovski{J-Hearts} {J-Clubs}
ElkY{5-Clubs} {5-Diamonds}
Tims{A-Hearts} {A-Clubs}

Tims was the clear favorite to triple up but it would all change on the flop.

Flop: {J-Spades} {5-Hearts} {3-Hearts}

Both Venovski and ElkY had flopped sets meaning Tims needed an ace to catch up! The turn {Q-Spades} and river {9-Clubs} completed the board and ElkY was out, Tims was reduced to 233,000 and Venovski moved up to 364,000.
