Poker has undergone evolutionary and revolutionary changes since its advent centuries ago. Rarely have the international poker circuits been without a US player at the table.

A concerted terse analysis of his rich poker CV points towards a sanguine career in a lucrative industry where few withstand the rigorous demands of the game. Clements is a two-time winner of WSOP bracelets by emerging winner in the $3,000 Omaha High-Low event in 2006 plus a 5,000 USD pot-limit Omaha battle in the next year.
In the WSOP 2006 that saw him sail through in Omaha competitions, he took home $3,000 Omaha High-Low Split 8/Better he raked in $301,175.
