Elder Sends One Packing

Rupert Elder

From middle position Rupert Elder raised to 2,500. Action folded around to the player in the cutoff who reraised to 8,200. When action folded back around to Elder he put in a fourth bet to 17,200. The player in the cutoff five-bet all in for a total of 44,800. Elder called it off.

Elder: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Cutoff: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}

It was a race situation and could go either way, but the flop fell {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{5-Spades} in favor of Elder. All he needed to do was dodge a queen or a running straight to take down the pot. The turn was a bit of a sweat when it came the {J-Hearts} giving the cutoff player four more outs, but Elder dodged them all on the {8-Spades} river to scoop the pot.
