Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier recently eliminated a player from his table.
We unfortunately missed all the details, but when we arrived at the table Grospellier had sitting in front of him and was in front of the empty seat. There were two queens on the board, and ElkY was stacking his newfound chips.
With that knockout he's now up to 35,000 chips.
We were walking through the Pavilion Room when we heard a commotion coming from Table 12.
Apparently a player in Seat 5 accused Neil Channing of working with another English player at the table.
"Just because I haven't had a hand in an hour and this man is from my a country - a country filled with 57 million people - you think I'm working on a team with him???" Channing shot at him.
A floorperson listened to both sides of the argument before completely dismissing the accusation and telling the table to, "Play nice."
Mind you that the same player that made this accusation earlier complained about folding after the dealer fanned a flop:
(Dealer flops the cards.)
Dealer: You can't do that sir.
Player: What? Say f***?
Dealer: Well yeah, but you can't react to the flop like that. You're giving away information.
(Player doesn't understand and shrugs.)
Laying between Tables 13 and 18 was a card face up; the .
A player on Table 13 picked it up and gave it to a player on Table 18 saying, "It's not ours."
The dealer on Table 13 counted both decks and they both contained 52 cards. A floorperson was called over and was outraged.
"Are you kidding me?!?" he snapped. "We've gotta find where this came from."
The hunt is on for the home of the phantom , members of the floor are counting numerous decks in the area.
The players are on their final 20-minute break of the night.
