Scott Clements' Favorite Hand of the Tournament



The action folded to Christopher George, who limped in from the small blind.

"I'm going to raise it up!" Scott Clements announced, loudly.

"I'm calling!" George responded, proudly.

The flop fell {7-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}.

"Check," said George.

"Bet," Clements blurted.

"Raise," George responded without thought.

"Three bets," Clements shot back immediately.

George thought for a second, then called. The turn was the {5-Clubs}, and George checked. Clements immediately bet, and George tanked.

"This is fun!" Clements said, unprovoked. "This is my favorite hand of the tournament!"

"I'm pretty light," George admitted.

"You're probably not going to win," Clements said smiling. "If you have a flush draw, you should fold."

It was impossible for George to have a flush draw, but he mucked anyway.

"I'll show you two," Clements told him, tabling {k-Spades}{2-Hearts}.

The entire table erupted with laughter, then began speculating as to what Clements' other two cards were.
