Scott Clements limped into the pot in early position, and Shaun Deeb raised to two bets. The player on the button three-bet, Clements cold-called, and Deeb made it four bets to go. The other two flatted, and off they went to a flop with more than 40,000 in the pot already.
It came , and Clements check-called a Deeb bet. The button ducked out of the way, and the dropped on fourth street. Clements led out now, then called an extra bet when Deeb raised. Clements check-called another big bet on the river.
Deeb turned up for aces full, and it was plenty good enough. "I had an out," Clements lamented with a bit of a smirk. We wonder whether it was the pocket sixes kind of one out, or the kind of one out. In any event, it missed, and Clements is down to about 125,000. That's in Deeb territory now he climbs up to about 120,000 with that healthy pot.
