Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier

Given his chip lead going into final table play, no real shocker that Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier captured the WPT Festa al Lago championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas yesterday.

Elky weilded is big stack aggressively (not as hot as it soundsTM), moving all-in in (not as hot as it soundsTM) time after time, pounding the rest of the guys at the table into submission (definitely not as hot as it sounds).

By the time Elky got heads-up with Nam Le, he held a 15-1 chip advantage, and wasted little time closing out him out and claiming the championship.

Elky banks $1,411,015 for the win and his first WPT title.

The rest of the final table pay-outs went: Nam Le ($943,215), Oddie Dardon ($506,245), Nenad Medic ($373,010), Adam "Roothlus" Levy ($266,445), and William Mietz ($186,510).
