While we had our attention on Ashton Griffin (more about him and his exit in the next post), Erick Lindgren and Scott Clements got into it on table 353. On an board Lindgren had shoved all in for 225,000. Lindgren, in the hijack, was awaiting Clements' decision. From the button he made the call after some thinking.
Lindgren had for the open ended, and needed to improve as Clements tabled . The on the river was exactly what Lindgren needed, and he doubled to just under 600,000.
The next hand Scott Clements shoved all in for 128,000 from the cutoff. Kyle White in the big blind made the call and they were off to the races.
The on the flop didn't mean any harm for Clements, but the on the turn gave his opponent some additional counterfeit outs. The on the river was a blank though, and Clements doubled.
