Dan Heimiller Cracks Aces to Double Through Scott Clements
Level 3: 100-200, 25 ante
Scott Clements just shared a key hand with us ...
A player raises from early position, Scott Clements calls from middle position, Dan Heimiller calls from the small blind, and the big blind calls. The flop comes K-9-8 with two diamonds, and it's checked to Clements, who bets 1,700. Heimiller raises to 4,000, and the other two players fold. Clements calls.
The turn card is an offsuit 5, Heimiller checks, Clements bets 17,000, and Heimiller calls. The river card is the A, and there are no flush possibilities on the board. Heimiller bets 17,000, Clements raises to 50,000, and Heimiller moves all in for 69,000.
Clements calls with A-A for a set of aces on the river, but Heimiller shows 76 for a nine-high straight to win the pot. Heimiller flopped a flush draw and a straight draw, and caught his straight on the turn.
Heimiller doubles up and pulls in a huge pot, while Clements is "crippled" down to 120 big blinds.
Dan Heimiller - 188,000
Scott Clements - 24,000
