The USD 400 Ultimate Monster tournament had only seven players remaining and Clogston went all-in. After which he started discussing the possible hands on the table with Don Iyengar. This was when Clogston suggested that the flop would be 8,9,10 and that’s exactly what happened. This surprised players on the table.
As if that was not enough, Clogston went ahead, told his fellow players what he thought the turn would be and said, “Four of spades?” Lo and behold! The dealer had in fact pulled out a four of spades on the turn. This shocked everyone on the table with the tournament’s eventual winner, Pedro Rios, exclaiming, “Someone called that?”
Many of the players couldn’t believe their eyes at the spot-on prediction. Curious and a little bit spooked by the situation, another player then asked Clogston, “So what’s coming on the river?” And without any form of hesitation, he replied, “Two of hearts.” In an absolute insane hat trick, the river card turned out to be the two of hearts.
This caused everyone on the table to fly out of their seats in disbelief. While it’s not uncommon to predict the community cards in poker, rightly predicting every single outcome of a hand, is something that could only happen in the movies. While Clogston may have busted out in the third position in the game, this is the moment he will most likely be remembered for.
