Elder Scrolls: Sending Them to Oblivion

Rupert Elder

Rupert Elder check-raised Dobromir Nikov's 8,200 flop bet to 21,300 on a {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} board and Nikov made the call to see the {3-Spades} turn.

Elder thought for a moment before betting 36,800 and Nikov again made the call, slightly quicker this time to see the {8-Hearts} river. Elder now thought for two minutes, eyeing up Nikov's stack which was still around 200,000, Elder then declared, "I'm all in."

Nikov looked incredibly uncomfortable, squirming in his seat, but after two minutes he made the call. Elder showed {A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for the nuts and Nikov mucked and was eliminated.

This put Elder up to almost 700,000 but the very next hand he lost {J-Spades}{J-Clubs} to Pierre Mothes' {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} for a 140,000 pot, which might have been unfunny earlier but now he just giggled about it.
