Scott Clements Eliminated in 8th Place ($21,645)

Scott Clements - 8th Place
Scott Clements - 8th Place


It has taken two hands to see Scott Clements eliminated on the bubble of the "unofficial" final table of seven. The first hand that left him crippled saw him check-raised on seventh street by Chris Bjorin. At the end, the hands looked like this.

Bjorin: Board - {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{9-Hearts} / Hole - {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Clements: Board - {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Clubs} / Hole - {k-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Clements held a straight to the seven, while Bjorin managed to hold a straight to the king. The very next hand saw Clements all in during the first round of betting, having to come up against Thomas Chambers.

Clements: {7-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} / {9-Hearts}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{8-Clubs} / {8-Clubs}
Chambers: {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs} / {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Spades} / {7-Clubs}

Chambers drew the straight and Clement's cards went into the muck as he was sent out the door in eighth place.

Gabriel Nassif Eliminated in 9th Place ($16,186)

Posted 2012-07-01 GMT-7

No Limit Hold'em

Julien Renard opened for 15,000 in the small blind and Gabriel Nassif moved all in from the big blind. Renard called and the hands were tabled.

Renard: {A-Spades} {10-Hearts}
Nassif: {A-Hearts} {9-Clubs}

The board ran {2-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} {8-Spades} {7-Spades} {9-Diamonds} and Renard won the hand. Renards stack was counted at 121,000 even. Nassif counted his stack and he had 121,500 exactly. Both stacks were counted a second time for verification and Nassif was indeed left with one T500 purple chip.

He tossed his last chip in for the ante and the game switched to Razz. Michael Saltzburg decided to play the hand he made a jack-ten low and Nassif was eliminated.

Hang Doubles Through Clements

Posted 2012-07-01 GMT-7

No-Limit Hold'em

We didn't see how the betting went down exactly, but Tommy Hang was on the button when he was all in for around 150,000 holding {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. He was up against Scott Clements in the small blind, with him holding {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

By the time the {9-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs} board had run out, Hang had raked in the double up, while Clements chip stack is still quite healthy.

Chip Counts
Tommy Hang 300,000
Scott Clements 280,000 -80,000 neg

Matthew Ashton Eliminated in 10th Place ($16,186)

Matthew Ashton - 10th Place

Matthew Ashton was left crippled just a short while ago and now he has played his last hand of poker in this tournament. The game that he was eliminated in was Stud Eight-or-Better.

Ashton was all in from the beginning of the hand and by the time his cards were all out on the felt, they looked like this {4-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts} (in no particular order) and with his river card going into the muck. That hand wasn't good enough for Thomas Chambers, who held {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}. (in no particular order).

Ashton's elimination in 10th place leaves us with just nine players remaining.

Ashton Left For Dead

Posted 2012-07-01 GMT-7

Stud 8

Matthew Ashton: {x-}{x-} / {2-Clubs}{a-Spades}{3-Spades}{10-Diamonds} / {x-}
Thomas Chambers: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} / {x-}
Chris Bjorin: {x-}{x-} / {j-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} / {x-}

We arrived at the action on fifth street, with Matthew Ashton leading out. Thomas Chambers then made it an extra bet and Chris Bjorin cold called. Ashton then raised it up again and both his opponents called. On sixth street, Ashton checked and Chambers bet. Bjorin then raised it up and Ashton tank-called. Chambers called and seventh was dealt.

On seventh street, Chambers led and Bjorin called. Ashton then tank for a long time. He only had around 15,000 behind and had already committed so much to the hand. Eventually he opted to fold. Chambers turned over {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for a seventy-six low, while Bjorin held {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{a-Hearts} for three nines. The pot was split up between Bjorin and Chambers, while Ashton was left crippled. He did seem happy that he made the fold though.

Pot Limit Omaha

We found Vanessa Selbst and Bryn Kenney heads up at the turn. The board read {6-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {5-Hearts} {10-Clubs}, Selbst bet 34,000 and Kenney raised to 92,500.

Selbst thought for a moment and then potted. Kenney moved all in and Selbst called

Selbst: {A-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {J-Diamonds} {2-Spades}
Kenney: {10-Spades} {10-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}

Kenney was ahead with a set of tens but Selbst hit the river when it fell {Q-Diamonds} giving her the Broadway straight.
