Results

Scott Clements has found a very lucky venue for himself and his fans. The mortgage broker from Washington State in the USA has twice tasted success at the Niagara Falls Casino, the Fallsview Casino Resort. In 2006 he won the WPT Canadian Championship, and in October 2007 he had to overcome some really tough competition to win the North American Poker Championship and the $1.36 million which was up for grabs.

Clements had to heads-up against 2007 Mirage Poker Showdown Champion, Jonathan Little, but the runner-up had no answer to Clements’s final hand trip fives.

When asked about his Final Table success he said “I actually had some big hands early and was able to knock out the first couple of players. Not great hands, but situational good hands against people that weren’t real deep. So that ended up working well and I was able to build a chip lead. But I did kind of get some fits at the final table. Barry (Greenstein) always gives me problems, he’s so aggressive and it’s just kind of tough to keep up; letting him bully me and bully me and I couldn’t hit anything against him. I really feel like Dave (Cloutier) kind of changed up his style. I played with him on a few days before and he was really kind of a rock and today I feel like he wasn’t. I feel like he played well. He gave himself a really good chance to win. I really don’t feel that against Jonathan and I, that if we are going to play really deep-stack poker, that he was going to have as good a shot unless he tried to be the aggressor and he did and that was a good strategy for him”.
