Elder Catches a Bluff

• Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Rupert Elder

Rupert Elder raised to 320,000 and Max Heinzelmann made the call. We saw a flop of {j-Clubs} {j-Spades} {q-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn was the {k-Clubs} and the action went up a notch. Heinzelmann bet 175,000, Elder raised to 650,000, Heinzelmann pumped it up to 1,450,000 and Elder called.

Deja vu?

River: {10-Spades}

The pot was 3.5 million and Heinzelmann bet 3,075,000. Elder was riffling chips in his hand as his mind raced through all of the permutations. In the end he made the call and Heinzelmann mucked his cards unseen. The dealer shipped the massive pot over to Elder and he slid his cards unseen to the Dealer.
