Event #17: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E.

Tristan Clemencon Eliminated in 10th Place ($18,577)

• Level 24
Tristan Clemencon - 10th Place


Tristan Clemencon was apparently unable to parlay his double up in the last update into any momentum and after Michael Chow raised to 40,000, the Frenchman decided to go all in blind for his last 60,000. David Baker came along as well and Clemencon would have to defeat two opponents in order to remain in the tournament.


Chow: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Baker: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Spades}
Clemencon: {7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The final board rained down {5-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and Chow's top-two pair, aces and kings, were best after it was all said and done, besting Clemencon's smaller two pair. The Frenchman was eliminated in 10th place and will pocket $18,577 for his efforts.
