JC Tran Eliminated

poolshir • Level 4: 300-600, 0 ante

Jesse Martin raised from the under-the-gun position, Tim West called in the button, and JC Tran was all in from the big blind.

The flop came {4-Spades}{8-Spades}{9-Hearts}, West bet, and Martin folded. West showed {K-Spades}{6-Spades} for the flush draw and Tran had ten high.

The turn was the {A-Spades} to give West the flush and had Tran drawing dead. The {6-Clubs} on the river didn't make a difference anymore and Tran was eliminated and grabbed his stuff.
