Drinan Busts ElkY and Corkins, Amasses Huge Stack

Bertrand Grospellier - outta here

When we arrived at Table 30, the flop had already fallen {7-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier was all in, battling for the 50,000-chip main pot, while Connor Drinan and a Hoyt Corkins were butting heads for a rather large side pot. The turn was the {6-Hearts}, and Drinan checked to Corkins who tossed out 28,600. Drinan called.

The {9-Spades} completed the board, and Drinan checked again. Corkins moved all in, and before we could even count his stack, Drinan snapped it off, tabling {q-Clubs}{q-Spades} for a flopped full house. Grospellier swiftly mucked his hand then exited, and Corkins tabled two aces before following him out the door.

Drinan is now among our chip leaders - he commands a 350,000-chip stack.
