In a battle of the blinds, Thomas Elder was at risk for 335,000 from the big blind against Anthony Astarita in the small.
Elder had two live, suited cards with a chance to double up and paired both of them on the flop. The turn and river kept him in the lead for the double up.
“Sorry guys,” Elder joked with the rest of the table.
Thomas Elder – 730,000 (12 bb)
Anthony Astarita – 2,900,000 (48 bb)
