Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Rupert Elder, The One Man Wrecking Crew

Rupert Elder

Just a few minutes after taking out a player with {A-}{K-} against {Q-}{Q-}, Rupert Elder got himself into another race that was eerily similar to the last.

In middle position Elder had a bet of 5,800 in front of him after some unknown preflop action. From there, a woman in the big blind had reraised to 14,000. Action folded back around to Elder who effectively moved all in by dropping a stack of 100,000 chips in front of him, which was more than enough to put the player at risk. After a few seconds of thought, the player called it off and the two hands were turned up.

Elder: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}
Big Blind: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

The flop was no good for Elder when it came {5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades}, but the turn was just what he needed when the {K-Hearts} peeled off to put him way ahead in the hand. The river was the safe {9-Spades} and that allowed Elder to notch his second coin-flip knockout in row here in the Main Event.
