Rupert Elder Moves Just Under a Million

Rupert Elder

Our hopes of heralding our first ever double EPT winner have just taken a shot in the arm after Rupert Elder has doubled up. His unfortunate opponent was Dimitris Mpinas and this is how the hand went down.

Dimitris Mpinas raised to 40,000 in early position and Rupert Elder moved all-in for 448,000 in the hijack seat. Mpinas took some time before calling and we had a showdown.

Elder{8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds}
