Operation ElkY: €10,000 to be won

Ever wanted to compare your performances with that of a world champion? PokerStars is giving you this opportunity from November 18-24. Be better than Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier during seven days at the €5 Hyper Turbo Sit & Go tables (9 players) and you'll build a big starting stack for the Operation ElkY freeroll on Wednesday, November 25 at 20:00 CET, featuring a €10,000 prize pool.

Players who accumulate more KOs than the Team PokerStars Pro in a day will win 1,000 chips towards their starting stack for the final Freeroll. Make this happen each day of Operation ElkY and you can get up to 7,000 chips for the Freeroll to maximise your chances of success.

The eligible Sit & Go's are available from 18:00-00:00 CET but ElkY is only allowed to play from 20:00-22:00 CET. This will give you even more chances to knock players out and register more KOs than our world-class Team PokerStars Pro.

Stream ElkY while he plays

Interaction is at the heart of Operation ElkY. Bertrand will provide live commentary on his sessions on PokerStars Live during the two hours he's allowed to play every day. Don't hesitate to rail him for tips, insight and inspiration.

If you're comfortable with the French language, we advise you to go to the PokerStars Live page to check Bertrand Grospellier's final score everyday (as well as on his Twitter account). The data is updated every day at 16:00 CET. You can check your position every day in the 'Leader Boards' tab of the PokerStars client.
