Event 38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Theo Tran Eliminated in 2nd Place ($377,565)

Theo Tran - 2nd Place

The first time Theo Tran got his stack all-in preflop and received a call from Dung Nguyen, he was in great shape to double-up. Tran held {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and Nguyen was behind with {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}.

When the {8-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop was dealt on the felt, Tran was still in front and looking good. At this point Nguyen's rail was up on their feet, screaming for a queen. They wouldn't get their wish, but a {10-Diamonds} would be enough to put Nguyen in front.

It was looking bleak for Tran, but he now had outs to the flush as well. He needed any ace, any king or any diamond. However, it wasn't meant to be as a {j-Clubs} dealt the final blow to Tran's tournament life. For that great effort, Tran goes home in second place, taking home $377,565. That is the second time that Tran has finished in the runner-up spot in a World Series of Poker event and as such, we are sure he will be even hungrier to find his first bracelet soon.
