Elky is only eight players away from winning the One Drop High Roller and becoming nearly $3.7M richer. The top 4 places lock up at least $1M. Can Elky pull it off? Or will someone else pick him off?
Event #6 - $111,111 ONE DROP HIGH ROLLER - Final Table
Only 23 players began on Day 3 and only nine were left standing. Bertrand Grospeller a.k.a. Elky is the big stack with 16.8M. His closest opponent, Martin Jacobson, has 8.9M.
Dan Shak, gold trader and high stakes reg, bubbled the money in 21st place. Day 3 ended when Phil Hellmuth busted in tenth place. Hellmuth did not dodge a bullet this time. His Ace-four (are you kidding me, Ace-four? Only a donk from Northern Europe would play that!) lost to Martin Jacobson's Big Slick.
Notables who cashed in this event included Phil Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, Byron Kaverman, Scott Seiver, Charlie Carrell, Dan Colman, Simon Lam, Nick Petrangelo, Salman Behbehani, Igor Kurganov, and Connor Drinan.
Also, still left in the hunt... Dario Sammartino, Rainer Kempe, Andrew Robl, Doug Polk, Haralabob, Mike Kamran, Chris Moore, and former Main Event champ Martin Jacobson.
Haralabos Voulgaris is the short stack, while Elky is the big stack. Can Elky go wire-to-wire for the win?
