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

Big and Risky

Scott Clements

There's only one multiple bracelet winner left in the 2010 WSOP Main Event and his name is Scott Clements. In the back-to-back years of 2006 and 2007, Clements scored a gold bracelet. He won the $3,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Split 8-or-Better event in 2006 for $301,175 and the following year won the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $194,206.

On top of those finishes, Clements has 15 other WSOP cashes including a total of seven final tables. Besides the two final table he won, take a look at how Clements has wrapped up some of his best runs at WSOP events:

2007: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em - 5th for $112,997
2008: $1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo - 9th for $22,172
2008: $2,000 Omaha Hi/Lo - 7th for $36,232
2009: $10,000 World Championship Omaha Hi/Lo - 2nd for $275,946
2009: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo - 3rd for $101,063

As you can see, Omaha is a game that Clements is extremely proficient at.

Along with all his WSOP success, Clements also holds two World Poker Tour titles for taking down the C$2,500 WPT Canadian Poker Open in 2006 for $222,051 and C$10,000 North American Poker Championship Event in 2007. The latter netted him over $1.5 million alone! In total, Clements had just about $15,000 short of $4 million in live tournament winnings up until this Main Event. This deep run puts him well over that mark.

His best finish in the WSOP Main Event is a 529th way back in 2005. This year he's doing much better than that min-cash and will be a force as we move closer to the November Nine.
