Two Pair Good For Adeniya, Not Good For Clemencon

Martins Adeniya

Tristan Clemencon opened to 750, and he found calls from both Martins Adeniya and Dmitry Nemirovsky. The three of them took a {5-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} flop, and Clemencon knocked the table. Adeniya took his cue to bet 1,025 at the pot, and Nemirovsky called. Clemencon snuck in a check-raise to 4,125 total. Now Adeniya was the only one to call, and they two went heads up to the {A-Hearts} turn. Clemencon bet 7,575, and Adeniya snap-called to bring the {7-Spades} river. Clemencon only had about 10,000 chips left, and he went ahead and reluctantly shoved them in. Another quick call from Adeniya, and the cards were on their backs.

Clemencon: {9-Spades} {10-Spades}
Adeniya: {A-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}

Clemencon's two pair were inferior to Adeniya's, and he was forced to slide the rest of his chips across the felt. The two men, both EPT regulars, shared a quick conversation after the hand in which Adeniya admitted he didn't think Clemencon was that strong, and Clemencon conceded that he made a mistake somewhere along the way too.

Clemencon's EPT Prague is done here on Day 1, and Adeniya will use his chips to climb to about 55,000 or so.
