Por Onde Andam – T.J. Cloutier

Compartilhe
Existem jogadores na série “Por Onde Andam” que quando olho para eles me pergunto como farei para escrever suas histórias sem gastar páginas e mais páginas. Encontrar uma maneira de colocar as melhores histórias de um jogador que tem milhares delas não é uma tarefa fácil. T.J.Cloutier obviamente é um deles. Cloutier é um dinossauro do poker, do tempo em que quando você ganhava um pote, você precisava olhar para os lados para ver se ninguém sacaria uma arma, algo que ele presenciou várias vezes.

Thomas James Cloutier nasceu em 13 de Outubro de 1939 em Albany, Califórnia. Embora a maioria de suas histórias seja originária do Sul, particularmente Texas e Louisiana, os primeiros dias de Cloutier foram vividos na Costa Oeste. Quando adolescente Cloutier se destacava como um bom atleta, e ganhou uma bolsa de estudos para jogar futebol americano e beisebol na Universidade da Califórnia. Em 1959 Cloutier teve a sorte de fazer parte do time que jogaria no Rose Bowl. Cloutier certamente faria sua carreira na liga de futebol profissional NFL, mas por causa de uma crise financeira na família, Cloutier precisou deixar a escola para ajudar seus familiares. Pouco depois de retornar para casa Cloutier foi convocado para servir as Forças Armadas.

No exército Cloutier conheceu o poker. De todas as maneiras os dias de soldado de Cloutier foram normais, exceto pelo fato de conhecer o jogo que mudaria o curso de sua vida. No entanto, neste ponto, o poker era apenas um passatempo para ele. O que ele realmente queria era se tornar um jogador profissional de futebol.

Quando seus dias no exército terminaram, ele realizou seu desejo de jogar futebol, mas na Liga Canadense. Cloutier passou alguns anos jogando nos times de Montreal e Toronto, mas uma lesão no seu joelho pôs fim ao seu sonho de jogar na NFL. De volta aos EUA, ele iniciou uma empresa alimentícia, e quando sua empresa fechou, Cloutier partiu em direção ao Oeste, em busca dos campos de petróleo do Texas.

Todos esses eventos negativos na vida de Cloutier acabariam se tornando uma benção. Nos seus dias de folga, Cloutier participava dos jogos de poker com alguns outros trabalhadores. Assim como na grande maioria das histórias da série “Por Onde Andam”, Cloutier percebeu que ele ganhava mais dinheiro no seu “hobby” do que no seu trabalho principal. E assim, Cloutier era um jogador de poker profissional, título que ele mantém por quase 50 anos.

O poker no Sul era arriscado nesta época. Existe uma história que Cloutier gosta de contar sobre seus primeiros dias no poker quando ouve algum jogador reclamando de uma bad beat. Em um jogo com vários gângsteres, um começou a acusar o outro de trapaceiro, e do nada as armas foram sacadas. Dois deles foram mortos ali mesmo, enquanto outro, com um ferimento no peito, saiu para procurar ajuda. Ele bateu na porta de um vizinho que, pensando estar sendo roubado e com sua arma na mão, atirou e matou o homem que buscava ajuda. Isso sim é uma bad beat!

Nos anos 60 e 70, Cloutier passou a maior parte do tempo procurando cash games no Sul, e tentando evitar os tiroteios. É estranho dizer que a maioria destes jogadores se sentia segura em Las Vegas, já que tinham alguma segurança dentro dos cassinos. Cloutier começou a viajar para lá sempre que podia, e no início dos anos 80 ele começou a passar mais tempo por lá, jogando particularmente os grandes torneios.

Como você deve saber, seu sucesso em torneios é enorme, e não podemos falar qual é o seu melhor resultado. Então, ao invés disso, faremos um pequeno resumo. Ele é o único jogador na história a ganhar eventos nas três modalidades de Omaha oferecidas na WSOP. Sua primeira vitória em Omaha foi também seu primeiro bracelete, vindo no Hi em 1987. Seu próximo bracelete, e vitória em Omaha foi em 1994, no evento Omaha 8 or better. Em 1994 ele ganhou dois braceletes, o outro na modalidade Pot Limit Hold’em. Em 1998 ele ganhou um terceiro bracelete em Pot Limit Omaha.

Dito isso, Cloutier ganhou seis braceletes na WSOP, o mais recente em 2005 quando ele ganhou o evento de $5.000 No Limit Hold’em para um prêmio de $657.000. O bracelete que passou perto mais vezes, no entanto, é o do Main Event. Nenhum jogador na história chegou tão perto por tantas vezes como ele. Ele terminou entre os cinco primeiro quatro vezes. Em 1985 e 2000 ele terminou na segunda colocação, sendo o evento de 2000 seu maior ganho até hoje, $896.000. Cloutier é o segundo jogador com mais mesas finais na história, perdendo para Phil Hellmuth, e em todos os torneios combinados ele tem perto de $10.000.000 de dólares em prêmios. T.J. foi nomeado ao Hall Da Fama do Poker em 2006.

Por causa do seu sucesso, frequentemente pedem os seus conselhos, e por causa disso ele escreveu ou foi co-autor de seis livros de poker, o mais recente “How To Win The Championship: Hold’em Strategies For The Final Table”, foi publicado em 2006 e é considerado uma leitura vital para todo jogador de poker, especialmente jogadores de poker ao vivo. Cloutier foi também um contribuidor da Bluff Magazine por muitos anos, deixando este cargo recentemente.

Apesar de ter quase 70 anos, Cloutier continua a ser um dos jogadores mais dominantes do Circuito. Em Novembro de 2007, ele ganhou o Evento de No Limit Hold’em de $5.000 no Desafio Scott Nguyen para um prêmio de $240.560. Em Abril do ano passado ele chegou entre os primeiros no WPT Championship, terminando na 34ª colocação.

Não há uma fórmula para se calcular quem PE o melhor jogador de torneios de poker de todos os tempos, mas em minha opinião ele deverá sempre ser incluído entre os maiores de todos os tempos.
