ElkY's WSOP Woes

ElkY's WSOP Woes

Saturday, 24 May 2014

We brought you news yesterday that international players at this year's World Series of Poker would need two forms of ID to play. One man struggling to find even one is poor old Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier.

The French star had his passport stolen on a recent visit to Toronto and is currently back home trying to nudge authorities into providing him with a new one.

Given the glacial pace at which French bureaucracy moves, it looks like ElkY will be facing a lengthy wait and will subsequently miss the start of this year's WSOP.

The PokerStars pro tweeted:

If you've got him in your WSOP fantasy team, you'd better start looking for a replacement.
