Scott Clements Hits the Bad Beat Jackpot
Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Chris Klodnicki may have suffered the bad beat of the tournament, but he kindly filled us in on how he lost most of his stack in a quads over quads situation:
Luis Velador raised to 2,000 from early position, another player called Chris Klodnicki called on the button, John Smith called from the small blind, and Scott Clements called from the big blind.
The flop came down 9-9-8 and Smith schecked. Clements bet 6,000 and action folded to Klodnicki, who ade it 15,000 to play. Smith folded and Clements reraised to 28,500 total. Klodnicki fired back, aking it an additional 15,000 to play. Clements moved all-in for around 110,000 total and Klodnicki called, having Clements covered.
Klodnicki showed 8-8 for eights full of nines. Clements trailed with 9-10 suited for trip nines. The case 8 on the turn gave Klodnicki quad eights and left Clements drawing to a single out.
That out came with the case 9 on the river, giving Clements a better set of quads and the gigantic pot.
Scott Clements - 220,000
Chris Klodnicki - 33,000
