Tran Busts Cajelais and Barnes in Huge Early Pot


There was a loud commotion over on Table 3, and several players were standing around the table. Jean-Robert Bellande was seated at an adjacent table, but stood up to see what was going on. He then yelled out that there was a big three-way all in.

"It's nuts, nuts and a flush draw," Bellande said to his table. "Two guys have the nuts and one has top pair and a flush draw... with one to come."

When our reporter arrived at the table after the loud stir, a board of {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs} was in the middle, and three hands were face up on the felt. Henry Tran held the {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and was the player with top pair and a flush draw. Erik Cajelais held the {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for a turned nut straight, and Brandon Barnes held the {6-Spades}{5-Hearts} for also the turned nut straight.

"Club!" yelled Tran as the dealer went to deal the final card.

The river was the {5-Clubs} and Tran had smacked his flush. Cajelais was not happy at all, and he got up from his chair and quickly stormed out of the room. Barnes left more quietly, but also still not happy. Tran had them both covered and has catapulted to over 90,000 in chips here in the closing minutes of the first level.
