Grospellier was doing the rounds on poker’s cash game streaming circuit last month. He appeared on both the Hustler Casino Live stream and the Live at the Bike stream over the course of a week.
He dropped into the U.S. for the World Series of Poker to take a break from his new career as a professional player. Grospellier has been nominated for the Poker Hall of Fame for the second year in a row. He lost out to Flack who passed away last year.
Grospellier headed to L.A. for two of the biggest live streaming shows in California, one at the Bicycle and the other at the Hustler.
Grospellier has a sponsorship contract with GGPoker, a company that helped facilitate the streams.
There is a story of two cash games
The LATB show was a little more grown up than the HCL show. The play was less swingy and the stacks were smaller.
Unlike several of the players, Grospellier showed up to play with a VPIP in the high thirties, and after the cards ran against him, he managed to do off a modest $4,950 on the stream.
The French player was at the Hustler a few days later, mixing it up with many of the same players.
The stakes were not different on this stream. The straddle made it a $50/$100/$200 game with a $100 big blind ante for most of the time.
There was a lot more money on the table during the stream. At the Bike, the biggest stack at the end of the night was about $80k deep. At Hustler, six of the nine final stacks were deeper than that, and the deepest was $240,675.
The big winner this time was Elky, who made a profit of $60,700 on the six-hour stream. That was more than made up for his performance on ATB.
A six-hour live streaming show made a $60,700 profit for a French poker player. He appeared on both the Hustler Casino Live stream and the Live at the Bike stream. For the second year in a row, Grospellier was nominated for the Poker Hall of Fame. He lost out to Flack who passed away last year.
