Scott Clements is a professional poker player, who was born in 1982, in Mount Vernon, Washington. Scott worked there as a mortgage broker and before starting his career as a poker player, he only played online. His first poker game ever was in 2004 but when the state of Washington made playing illegal, he stopped playing online. Instead Clements decided to participate in poker professionally and so he started playing in different live tournaments.
His first appearance at a tournament was on March 12, 2005, in the Rio Las Vegas Poker Tournament - WSOP Circuit No Limit Hold'em. There Scott finished 33rd and won $1.471. However, on April 30, 2005 he made it to the first place of Harrah's Lake Tahoe Poker Tournament - WSOP Circuit No Limit Hold'em taking a check for $45.745. One year later Scott Clements made his first huge success in his career as a poker player, taking part in the 37th Annual World Series of Poker Omaha Hi/Lo and finished at 1st place. That granted him his first bracelet and a prize of $301.175. That was just the beginning – en energetic person like him could never stop just like that.
Scott Clements was not playing just for the adventure, though – he wanted to gain respect in the poker world. In 2006 came his third win at the Canadian Open Championship /WPT No Limit Hold'em Championship where he earned $250.027. In June 2007 Scott Clements participated in the 38th Annual World Series of Poker, where he finished 1st and his earnings exceeded $300,000.
On November 2nd, 2007, Scott Clements made his greatest achievement ever - at the North American Poker Championships /WPT No Limit Hold'em Championship he won his second bracelet and took a check for the amazing $1,361,724. His last participation on a tournament to this date was at the 39th World Series of Poker 2008, where he earned $70.197. His total live tournament winnings exceed $3,000,000.
Scott Clements continues to live in Mount Vernon, Washington and is now married. His wife left her job as a hairdresser so she can travel with him all over the world, since, according to Scott Clements himself, she is the only person who gave him the support he needed.
