Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier Refuses To Surrender

Disappointed in 2013, the Frenchman gets back to work.

In an interview with the boys of PokerStrategy, France’s most famous poker face, Bertrand Grospellier, talks about how he’s looking to get back to the top of the poker world in 2014. Even with over $400k in prize money in 2013, ElkY is of a mind that it’s not good enough to be good enough…he’s got to work on his game.

All in all, the last year was rather disappointing since I couldn’t even get close to the final table in most of the major tournaments. The only exceptions were Macau and the France Poker Series in November, where I reached the final table. But that’s certainly not sufficient. The main point is that I want to improve my game – I don’t want to have another year like 2013 ever again.

That’s not the only thing BG is working on. This guy has been hitting the gym and he’s got the photos to prove it. ElkY believes that a strong physical presence helps you get through those hours of poker fatigue when you go deep in a tournament.

If you’re not in a good condition, you’re going to be tired much faster and making more more mistakes especially at the end of the day.

It’s a solid article and a great way great to catch up with the Team PokerStars Pro ... check it out.
