Elders Are Your Bettors

Rupert Grin(t)

Rupert Elder has just been giving Dimitris Mpinas a bit of a kicking in the last couple of hands. First, Mpinas made it 25,000 UTG and then folded {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} face up when Elder made it 58,000 next to him.

Two hands later and Mpinas raised to 26,000 in the small blind and Elder called to see a flop of {K-Clubs}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Mpinas continued with a 36,000 bet and Elder flat-called to see the {A-Spades} turn, Mpinas quickly checked and Elder pushed out a bet of 47,000 but Mpinas now check-raised to 105,000.

Elder thought for about 30 seconds before saying, "I'm all in."

Mpinas snap-folded.
