2009 World Series of Poker Leaders

Here were your 2009 World Series of Poker leaders heading into Saturday evening

Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier - Led the pack with 1,700,000 chips.  Grospellier is a French Poker player via South Korea. Grospellier enjoyed a massive amount of popularity in South Korea. Video gaming is a big, big deal in South Korea, and "ElkY" was one of its biggest stars, according to Poker King.  His total career tournament winnings exceed $5.7 million and this does not include what he has won online.  Grospellier would be a real hit for viewers if he were to make it to the Final Table of Nine in the 2009 World Series of Poker.
