Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Aces Don't Hold for Clements


As we get deeper and deeper into the money here in this Main Event, the stakes increase more and more. Getting your aces to hold up becomes even more important than it normally would be. That was the situation Scott Clements found himself in -- hoping his aces held -- after Clements raised pre-flop to 95000 and Brian Jensen jammed for 680,000 with pocket tens. The flop came {k-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, great for Clements, but Jensen spiked a {10-Clubs} on the turn to take the lead. He dragged the pot after the river blanked out {9-Clubs}.

Clements is down to about 2.1 million.
