ElkY Soars

• Level 4: 150-350, 25 ante
Bertrand Grospellier

The player under the gun opened with a raise to 1,000 and found calls from Aliaksei Boika in middle position, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier in the cutoff, the player on the button and the player in the big blind.

The five players saw a flop of {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} fall. There were two checks over to Boika who fired out 1,700. Grospellier flatted and the three other players let their hands go. The {3-Hearts} hit the felt on the turn and Boika slowed with a check. Grospellier reached for chips and moved 3,600 past the betting line. Boika called to see a river.

The dealer produced the {K-Spades} on the river, pairing the board. Boika checked for a second time and Grospellier bet 8,800. Boika went deep into the tank, thinking for about two minutes before announcing that he was all in. The raise was for well over 28,000 total and Grospellier quickly called for Boika's tournament life.

Boika showed {2-Hearts}{2-Spades} for deuces full of kings, but was ultimately bested by Grospellier's {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for fives full of kings. Grospellier scored the knockout and now has about 78,000 to his name.
