Levi Doubles Through Elder with Set of Fours

Nicolas Levi

From middle position, Rupert Elder raised to 10,500. Nicolas Levi flatted on the button and Mike "Timex" McDonald called out of the big blind.

The three players took the {Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} flop and McDonald was up first. He passed the action to Elder, the preflop raiser. Elder fired a continuation bet of 18,500 and Levi made the call. McDonald also came along and to the turn they went.

The {A-Clubs} landed on fourth street and McDonald checked to Elder once again. Elder, who won EPT San Remo in 2011, checked over to Levi and he bet 37,500. McDonald gave it up, but Elder wanted to see the river and made the call.

The river card was the {5-Clubs} and Elder checked. Levi moved all in for 130,000. Edler took about 30 seconds and then called. When he did, Levi tabled the {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} for a flopped set of fours. Edler mucked his hand and sent over the chips.
