Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier has seen his stack cut in two after a clash with Sotirios Koutoupas.
The action folded to ElkY in late position and he opened to 3,200. Koutoupas was to ElkY's left and he three-bet to 7,200, but that was not the end of the betting. With the action back on him, ElkY four-bet to 13,300 and Koutoupas called.
ElkY lead out for 8,800 chips on an flop, a bet that his opponent called. The on the turn did not deter ElkY from betting and the Frenchman upped the ante to 13,400. Again, Koutoupas called.
The river saw ElkY check and his opponent tapped the table and checked behind.
Koutoupas: and the winning hand.
