Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Grospellier is Groovin

The man popularly known as "ElkY," Bertrand Grospelier has been steamrolling his competition as of late.

In a recent hand, Grospellier opened to 6,500 from the button and was three-bet all in by Dario Sammartino for his last 50,000 from the small blind. Grospellier immediately pushed in a call and hands were revealed.

Grospellier: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Sammartino: {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

Sammartino was a slight favorite going into the flop, however, that would change when the flop came {3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}.

"That's a good flop," Grospellier said.

Indeed, it was, as it left Sammartino drawing to just one out.

The {Q-Hearts} turn meant nothing.

The river?

{9-Diamonds} - giving Sammartino a set of nines, but simultaneously improving Grospellier to a flush. Fellow tablemates Eugene Katchalov and Will Failla couldn't help but laugh - appearing dumbfounded by Grospellier's recent hot streak.

Grospellier is up to 340,000.
