Elias then had and moved all-in over Christoph Vogelsang’s opening bet of 10,000. Back up to 24 big blinds after a quick German fold.
Elias had on the button and made the call to Imsirovic’s bet to 11,000 with . The flop of saw Imsirovic check, and Elias bet just 12,000. Imsirovic made it 38,000. Elias, 96,000 behind him, made the call.
