      Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier is one of the best online poker players in the world. He’s picked up many cash finishes in the biggest events at PokerStars, and was also the first ever player to reach Supernova Elite status in the PokerStars VIP Club - and it only took him 13 days to do it! Maybe it’s his former career as a professional Starcraft player that’s helped him get so good, or maybe he was just born to be good at poker. Either way, his appetite for online action in the biggest games shows no sign of slowing down. And now he wants to take it even further.

      On April 28 at 13:00 ET, ElkY will be attempting to set a new world for the highest number of Sit & Go’s played at the same time. This special event will take place in Monte Carlo, during the Grand Final of the European Poker Tour Season 5 - and we want you to be part of the celebrations by sitting down to compete against him. What’s more, everyone that plays against ElkY during the record attempt will be issued a ticket to a special freeroll with a $1,000 guaranteed prize pool, talking place on May 6 at 16:00 ET.

      To be part of the action, simply follow these instructions to locate which tables ElkY will be playing at during his record attempt:

      Open the PokerStars lobby and click ‘Requests’.
      Select ‘Find a Team PokerStars Player’.
      Click on ElkY to see a list of tables he will be playing on.
      In order to set a new record, ElkY must follow these strict rules during the challenge:

      He has just one hour to open as many $6.50 Sit & Go’s as he can.
      He has to finish playing at all the tables he’s sat down at.
      He must finish with an overall positive bankroll.
      It’s going to be hard work, but ElkY is ready and waiting to go. Don’t miss your chance to play against one of the most famous names in the game, and be part of online poker history.

      PokerStars will also be filming the event, and you’ll be able to catch Elky’s performance from April 29 at 11:00 ET at http://www.pokerstars.tv.
