Morten Ahrensbach raised to 27,000 from the hijack only to have Mark Clement move all in for 135,000 total from the cutoff. The button and blind both got out of the way, and after thinking about it for more than a minute, Ahrensbach made the call.
It was a classic race, but it was Clement's tournament life that was on the line. He was clearly nervous, but breathed a big sigh of relief when the flop fell and gave him the lead. Neither the turn nor river changed a thing and Clement doubled on the hand.
