Bertrand Grospellier Signs with Partypoker

bertrand-elky-grospellierFrench poker pro Bertrand Grospellier has signed a deal to represent partypoker. He joins an impressive roster that also includes Fedor Holz, Isaac Haxton, Phillip Gruissem, and Patrick Leonard.

His new duties include helping the brand launch their dot-eu platform, which will share liquidity between France and Spain. Considering that he has the most tournament winnings of any French player with 13,580,523, Grospellier will be perfect for this role. He’ll also interact with customers and see what features/changes they want implemented at partypoker.

“I am extremely enthusiastic about joining partypoker to actively support their efforts to bring back the ‘Poker First’ mentality, live and online,” said Grospellier.

“Our goal is to provide players and fans with an experience they deserve worldwide. Partypoker will be aiming to bring their ambition, expertise and successful model to the .eu market with some big announcements coming soon.”

Partypoker also Happy about Deal

Partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters is ecstatic about adding the top French poker pro of all time to his team.

“We are delighted that ElkY is joining us at partypoker. ElkY has a fantastic profile and has great experience both in France and across the world and this makes him a perfect ambassador for us ahead of the shared liquidity launch,” said Waters.

“We will be looking to translate recent successes we have seen in our dotcom market to the new .eu market and ElkY will be instrumental in helping us to achieve our goals.”

Grospellier Picks Up New Deal After Leaving PokerStars

Bertrand Grospellier has been playing poker for well over a decade. And he’s amassed some impressive accomplishments during this span, including a WPT Festa al Lago win ($1,411,015) and a 2011 WSOP $10k Seven Card Stud Championship victory ($331,639). He’s also won over $1.9 million playing in PokerStars tournaments.

But given that PokerStars has shifted its marketing strategy away from live tournament pro sponsorships, Grospellier split from his long-time sponsor. It only took him a few months to find a new sponsor in partypoker.
