Jack McClelland Making Moves


Jack McClelland just knocked out two players in consecutive hands.

In the first hand, action was folded to McClelland, who was on the button, and he raised to 900. The small blind folded and the big blind called.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. The player in the big blind checked and McClelland responded with a bet of 1,000. His opponent called.

The turn delivered the {8-Hearts} and the big blind went all in for his remaining 2,450 chips. McClelland tanked for a few minutes before calling. The big blind showed {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for bottom pair. Meanwhile McClelland turned over {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

The {a-Hearts} on the river was no help to the big blind player who was sent packing.

In the very next hand, the player acting under the gun went all in for 2,250. Action was folded to McClelland in the cutoff who called with {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and was behind his opponent's {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}. The flop brought a board reading {5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and things didn't look too good for McClelland. The {8-Diamonds} on the river was no help, but he completed a straight on the river with the {6-Diamonds}.

McClelland is now up to over 20,000 in chips.
