GGPoker continues to find ways to make headlines. Just days after announcing they had partnered with the World Series of Poker for a WSOP Super Circuit Online series in May, the burgeoning online poker operator has added Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier as their newest ambassador.
“I am excited to join GGPoker, the most ambitious poker site,” Grospellier said. “With clear focus on software and making poker fun again, there has never been a better place to play online poker.”
Grospellier joins GGPoker after two years as a partypoker ambassador. Prior to that, he was a member of Team PokerStars for nearly 12 years. The Frenchman has $14.6 million in live earnings according to The Hendon Mob, highlighted by the 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event win, the World Poker Tour Festa Al Lago title in 2008, and WSOP bracelets in 2011 and 2019.
This is the third addition that GGPoker has made to their team in the last six months. In November, they signed Daniel Negreanu as an ambassador and in January Felipe Ramos joined the team. Both were also former members of Team PokerStars. The trio joined Bryn Kenney, who has represented GGPoker since March 2018.
“Team GGPoker continues to go from strength to strength, and having ElkY on board just amplifies this even more,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker. “With a poker and esports legend like ElkY representing our brand, the GGPoker community will be in for a real treat – all I can recommend is to watch this space.”
