Rupert Elder Exceeds 400k

Rupert Elder back in a familiar spot

Rupert Elder has just become our first player to pick up 400,000 chips and here is how he did it.

Elder raised to 6,000 in the cutoff seat and Vasileios Chantzaras three-bet to 14,600 on the button. The blinds folded and Elder decided to take a flop out of position. The flop was a bright red looking {Q-Hearts} {9-Hearts} {6-Hearts} and Elder checked to the three-bettor and he continued his pursuit of the pot with a bet of 16,400. Elder made the call and that was the last action that we saw in the hand. The turn {2-Clubs} and river {3-Clubs} brought the betting to a standstill and Elder had the stronger hand at showdown.

Elder{7-Clubs} {7-Diamonds}
Chantzaras{K-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds}

Elder in a great position at the top of the pile.
