JC Tran Pulling Away From the Pack
Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante
JC Tran was a late arrival to the day's action, but he is no worse for the wear by missing the early action. Tran is the biggest stack in the room and his pile of chips just keeps growing.
In a recent hand, Tran bets out on an 832 flop and one of his opponent's check-raises all-in for his last 9,000 or so. A third player in the hand calls, but folds when Tran reraises to around 20,000 total.
Tran turns over K5 for the king-high flush and his opponent is drawing dead with his 104 for a smaller flush. Tran rakes in the pot and chips up to around 235,000.
