Grospellier Praises the GGPoker Client

Grospellier is already a huge name in poker, and has been a former ambassador for both PokerStars and partypoker. However, he explained in the announcement that GGPoker has the best software "by far," incorporating many features into its online client that you find when you play live poker.

"For example, you can squeeze your cards. Not just that but you can squeeze the river card even though that's not something you can do in live poker of course! That's one of my favourite features.

"But my favourite feature by far is that you can stake players directly on the GGPoker client. You can sell pieces of yourself or buy pieces of your favourite players. That's a really cool feature that is automatically integrated and I think it's the best feature. You can also buy insurance to protect your hand from those nasty suckouts and bad beats.

"[The client] is the best and superior to any other software out there."

What Does the Future Hold?

With a background in esports, there's no surprise that Grospellier will be targeting the Twitch poker community and building up his profile as a GGPoker Ambassador on the site alongside the existing team of GGStreamers.

"With GGPoker I'll be playing a lot on the site and will be focusing on Twitch and interacting with fans, developing a channel and hosting a lot of hands and tournaments. I expect my career to go to the next level with GG being the biggest online poker site in the world and the great partnership we will have in the future."

What is GGPoker?

GGPokeris the flagship poker room for the GGNetwork.

Launched in 2014, GGNetwork initially focused on its Chinese and South East Asia-facing operations before expanding into Europe and Canada only a few years later.

As of 2020, it is ranked fourth in the world on Pokerscout, an industry traffic monitor.
