GGPoker, the world’s fast-growing online poker site, continues to grab headlines. Right after announcing its partnership with WSOP to host the Super Circuit Online Series in May, the site has grabbed attention for announcing a new brand ambassador in Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, who has more than $14M in the live poker circuit, and is also a former champion of EPT, WSOPE, WPT and WSOP. Also, he is an accomplished online player with over $2M in profits and two WCOOP titles.
ElkY joins the star-studded pro team of GGPoker comprising big names like Daniel Negreanu, Bryn Kenney, and Felipe Ramos. Earlier, ElkY was a member of the Team partypoker for over two years.
“I am excited to join GGPoker, the most ambitious poker site,” Grospellier said. “With a clear focus on software and making poker fun again, there has never been a better place to play online poker.”
Commenting on the latest addition to their pro team, Head of GGPoker, Jean-Christophe Antoine said,“Team GGPoker continues to go from strength to strength, and having ElkY on board just amplifies this even more. 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.”
Daniel Negreanu gave ElkY a warm welcome saying that he is super-excited to have him on board.
GGPoker has been coming with various enticing promotions this year, and it seems that the formula is working out as the traffic is booming on the site, and it is getting closer to the TOP 3 right now.
GGPoker Partners With WSOP To Host The Super Circuit Online Series In May
This latest announcement of adding Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier to their roster of brand ambassadors comes just after a few days GGPoker announced partnership with WSOP to host the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series for the international players. While the full schedule of the much-awaited has not been released as yet, it is expected to go live in early May and run for around three weeks.
As confirmed by WSOP, the series will feature hundreds of individual events, including 18 headline events that will award WSOPC gold Rings. GGPoker players will be able to qualify for WSOP Super Circuit events via satellite tournaments on the site. More details are expected to come out soon.
Talking about the latest partnership with GGPoker, the Executive Director of World Series of Poker Ty Stewart, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with an operator on the rise who is both aggressive and passionate about growing poker engagement around the world. It was unfortunate that we were forced to cancel so many offline WSOP Circuit events this Spring, but with vast reach, GGPoker plans to dwarf the prize pools of the suspended events all at once in one truly super WSOP Circuit.”
“I’m thrilled to reveal that GGPoker will be hosting the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series in partnership with World Series of Poker,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker in a press release. “A GGPoker and WSOP partnership brings together two like-minded global organizations, and I can’t wait to see GGPoker players competing for WSOP Circuit rings online.”
