Take It To The Clerc

Phillipe Clerc

Philippe Clerc has just doubled through Jason Bigelow in a big way to put himself near the top of the chip counts.

Preflop, Bigelow opened to 35,000. From the big blind, Clerc reraised to 80,000. Bigelow called.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Clerc led at it for 64,000. Bigelow reraised all in and Clerc snap called.

Bigelow: {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Clerc: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}

It was a mighty cooler for Bigelow who had flopped top pair against Clercs overpair. The board bricked out with a {4-Spades} and an {8-Hearts} and with that Clerc was able to snag a crucial double up.
