Third Bullet Works for Clements

MarcC

Scott Clements' stack was slipping but he won a nice pot without showdown just now to reverse that trend.

He opened to 9,000 from the hijack and went on to bet 9,500, 23,500, and 65,500 on each street. The final board read {5-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{k-Clubs} and his opponent in the big blind stuck with him all the way until the river where he tank-folded.

Theo Takes Hit

Theo Tran has taken a bit of a hit to his big stack recently. We watched him and one opponent take to a {8-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. Tran's opponent led for 14,500 and Tran cut out a call. The {q-Hearts} turn would see Tran's opponent pick up the heat, whereby Tran would opt to get out of way, sending his cards into the muck.

Tran Clipped Back

MarcC

Theo Tran was nearing the 370,000-chip mark until he doubled a player up to drop back a little. He still has a top three stack though.

Tran called a 67,000-chip shove from an opponent with {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. His opponent opened {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and the board ran {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{a-Spades}{4-Spades}.

The player then started to berate Tran who took it very well.

Flack Adds to Stack

MarcC

Layne Flack is up to a quarter of a million chips after he eliminated a player. He was sat in the big blind with {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and called a 36,000 shove from a player in late position.

The board ran a safe {2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}.

Flack has Sam Razavi to his left now. He might not enjoying having him there poker wise, but both have a devilish sense of humor so there will be plenty of laughs to be had.
