Live from the Two Plus Two Studios, September 5th 2011 - Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier & Joe Stapleton The feature guest this week on the Two Plus Two PokerCast is Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier. ElkY makes his long awaited return to the PokerCast to talk about his impressive high roller wins and finally having a break through World Series of Poker including taking home a 7 Card Stud Bracelet. Next Mike and Adam connect with Poker Media personality Joe Stapleton to chat about his work on the popular PokerStars Big Game and his latest project WCOOP radio. Poker pro and friend of the show Barry Greenstein returns to the program for a special segment remembering Thuy Doan who recently lost her long battle with cancer. Leggo Poker coach Andrew 'LuckyChewy' Lichtenberger talks about 'Straddling' in this weeks Leggo Poker / Deuces Cracked strategy segment. Mike and Adam provide a 'TV Comedy Madness' update in forum static and of course give away the password for the September 11th Poker Stars VIP Club Invitational for PokerCast listeners.

Listening on the web with my wireless headset. Is Elky speaking in English? I can barely understand a word.

I'd say ElkY speaks English better than most Americans. It's just shrouded in that thick French accent.

Oh, and Barry's segment on Thuy Doan is heartbreaking. Thanks for including him on this show -- he's one person who can truly pay tribute to her.

Has anyone ever tried to calculate the value that Rush Poker was to FTP, in dollars?

I believe all Boss Media skins pulled out of Canada last year.

Boss Media leases their obsolete platform to Quebec's EspaceJeux and British Colombia's Play Now. I believe Boss Media withdrawing from Canada was required to win the contract.

Yeah, that's a bit different. They didn't really pull out as much as sign a deal with the BC and Quebec lottery corporations. Their software still operates within the country.

Re: PokerCast Episode 187 - Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier & Joe Stapleton

The EPL Pro-Am had 97 entrants between the two day one's, which is the same number of starters that the main event ended up having.

The eve of Day 1A, everyone on the Las Vegas Advisor mailling list received this offer:

GET THE PRO TREATMENT!

Play Epic Poker's $1500 Pro/Am--get a pro swag bag and $100 in rake back!

Print this email out, present it upon registration into Epic Poker's $1,500 Pro/Am (or show us this email on your smartphone) and not only will you have a chance at one of nine coveted seats in the Epic Poker League $20,000 Main Event, we'll give you the pro treatment. You'll get the same pro swag bag our Epic Poker League Members get and $100 prepaid Visa card as soon as you have started play in the event!

Pro/Am September 2 - 5
Buy-in: $1500
....
*Offer not valid for Epic Poker League members.


Due to the offer being made at the last minute, one wonders if it is because they knew that they would be short on players. Besides conflicting with the WCOOP and WPT Paris, being over the holiday weekend probably hurt them as well. The 1st Pro-Am drew almost the double, 190 players.
