Clements Clipped Just Before the Break

Chad_Holloway • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Just before the break, Steven Silverman opened for 42,000 from the cutoff and was met by a three-bet from Scott Clements on the button. The blinds both folded, and then Silverman four-bet jammed. Clements called.

Clements: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Silverman: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

Both players held a queen, which meant Clements' ace had him well out in front. That all changed though when the {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} flop hit Silverman's jack. Clements could still win with either an ace or king, but neither appeared as the {6-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {9-Hearts} on the river.
