ElkY Straightens Things Out Ahead Of The PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo

Everyone’s favourite Frenchman, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, debuted a new nose at the PokerStars Monte Carlo Championship last week.

It turns out a yoga session prompted ElkY to go under the knife — as he realised during the class that he could only breathe through one nostril.

ElkY then made the decision to go to South Korea to get things straightened out.

Check out his interview with PokerNews below as he reveals more details about the surgery.

Kevin Hart PokerStars’ Sponsorship: “I Am Going To Make Poker Fun”

As the PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo was well underway on the French Riviera, Hollywood A lister Kevin Hart announced his new sponsorship deal with PokerStars.

Although he kept the details of the partnership close to his chest, he did say that he was “going to make poker fun” by working with PokerStars. He went on to say that “the best thing about poker is that anyone can play it, whether you’re making millions like Daniel Negreanu or just sitting around the kitchen table playing for coins.”

“I’m not going to tell you yet how we’re going to do it,” Hart continued. “But I have some great ideas to bring poker to the people, while having fun.”

With over 51 million followers on Instagram and 32.6 million on Twitter, he certainly has the reach to appeal to the masses.

And in true baller style, Hart made quite the entrance to the Championship in Monte Carlo last week.

You can watch Daniel Negreanu’s latest vlog on the $100k Monte Carlo Super High Roller featuring Kevin Hart below.

Hart was among the first to hit the tables at the inaugural PokerStars Championship Bahamas back in January.

Unsurprisingly though, the twoplustwo forums aren’t too positive about the new signing.
