Philippe Clerc

Hand #59: Philippe Clerc Raised to 80,000, and Michael Zucchet called from the big blind. The players saw the flop heads up, and the dealer spread {10-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Zucchet checked, and Clerc bet 100,000. Zucchet called, and the dealer turned the {j-Diamonds}. Zucchet checked again, and Clerc bet again, this time for 180,000. Zucchet announced an all-in raise for 1,025,000. Clerc would be at risk if he called, and he went into the tank. After a couple minutes, he called, and the players turned up their cards:

Clerc {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Zucchet: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Clerc had a pair of jacks and an open-ended straight draw, while Zucchet had an overpair. The river was the {3-Spades}, a complete brick. Zucchet won the pot, knocking Clerc out of the tournament. He earns $105,007 for his fifth place finish.
