The End - Hour Three at the Final Table

Durkee Doubles through Clements

Williams Durkee was all in with A J 9 6 and Clements had him covered with Q 7 5 4. The board was dealt K 6 4 A 10 and Durkee doubled up through Clements. Clements was once sitting alone as king of the mountain, but this hand, as well as the rise of Dau Ly now threatens that throne.

The Return of the King

After some lucrative preflop action the board of 7 7 5 6 was checked down by Scott Clements and Eric Lynch. The river brought the Q and Clements fired out $100,000. Lych called and Clements turned over sixes full of sevens. Clements took down the rather large pot and now had above $1 million.

William Durkee Eliminated in 4th Place ($52,285)

William Durkee was all in and Scott Clements made the call. Clements flipped over A K J 9 and Durkee showed down K K 10 7. The board was dealt Q Q J A 2 and Durkee was eliminated in fourth place. He took home $52,285 in prize money.

Chip Counts:

Scott Clements: $1,500,000
Dau Ly: $225,000
Eric Lynch: $100,000

Dau Ly Eliminated in 3rd Place ($78,624)

Dau Ly moved all in after a series of pot-sized raises between himself and Scott Clements. A flop of Q 9 4 sat on the table at this point and Clements flipped over J 10 6 3.

He took home $78,624 in prize money. Clements now had a monolithic stack with over $1,700,000 and Eric Lynch, his heads-up opponent waiting in the wings, saw the writing on the wall. “This should be quick,” said Lynch.

Scratch Paper

The $194,206 in prize money was taken out of a cardboard box that had “Scratch Paper” written on the side.

After Dinner - Hour Two at the Final Table

The Final Table Doldrums

The dinner break has done nothing to loosen up the players at the final table. The play has been slow, mechanical, and tight ever since they took their seats. A few of the guys look like they might fall asleep, and Scott Clements left his seat to sprint to the bathroom and back at one point. He didn’t miss a hand.

Mark Davis Eliminated in 6th Place ($29,877)

Mark Davis made bets of $20,000 on the flop and turn. Both times Dau Ly smooth called. That was until the river ,when Q 10 10 A 5 sat on the board. Ly then went into action and made a pot-sized bet to put Mark Davis on a tough decision. Davis made the all-in call and Ly flipped over two additional tens. Davis was eliminated by the quad tens of Ly in sixth place and he will take home $29,877 in prize money.

Leader Board

Action was down to five players at that point and here is how their chip stacks looked:

Dau Ly: $255,000
William Durkee: $258,000
Jason Newburger: $56,000
Scott Clements: $750,000
Eric Lynch: $385,000
