Event #12: $1,500 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Tran's Top Set Takes the Pot

• Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante
J.C. Tran

We missed the action ourselves but after spotting J.C. Tran among the field lording over an impressive tower of chips, we inquired as to how he had amassed his fortune.

According to a fellow player, Tran and an opponent got all of their chips in the middle on a flop of {A-}{Q-}{4-}. Tran's opponent showed {Q-}{Q-} for a flopped set, but found himself on the wrong end of a sick cooler when the tournament veteran flipped up {A-}{A-} for top set.

The case queen failed to make an appearance on the turn or river and Tran had dispatched his opponent from Day 1 of this $1,500 Triple Chance NLH event.
