Elias Going Up

A player in late position open-shoved for around 20,000, and Darren Elias called near the button. The remaining players got out of the way, and the hands were turned over.

Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Elias: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The board ran {j-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, and Elias won the pot.

The very next hand, Elias opened in late position, and a player on the button called. The flop fell {2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, and Elias continued for 6,500. His opponent raised to 15,800, Elias tank-called, and the turn brought the {q-Clubs}. Elias checked, his opponent took the opportunity to fire 28,200, and Elias called.

The {5-Diamonds} completed the board, and both players checked. The player on the button tabled {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens, but Elias held {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for the wheel. Elias' opponent seemed very frustrated, but Elias remained silent as he stacked his new chips.
