Bertrand Grospellier was down around 25,000 chips when this pot began, and he had zero when it ended.
"ElkY" and Eric Buchman mixed it up in a preflop raising war, and the last of Grospellier's chips went into the pot over the next two streets. The board read on the turn, and the cards were shown down.
Jason Mercier was meandering around in between his own hands, and he stopped by the table to sweat the action. "You got it, ElkY?" he asked.
"Oh, that's pretty nice," Mercier added as ElkY was looking for the scoop.
The river was cruel, though. The dropped off the deck to ruin the Frenchman's bid to double. He couldn't even catch a part of that pot, and Buchman scoops up the last of his chips to send him out the door in a shimmer of rhinestone-clad disappointment.
