Action Players Collide: Minieri vs. Tran

Dario Minieri and Henry Tran are both action players, which is why we stopped by there table to watch them battle it out in a decent-sized pot.

It happened when both put in 5,700 and saw a flop of {K-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. Minieri checked from early position and then called when Tran bet 3,600 from middle position. Minieri proceeded to check-call another bet, this time 4,200, on the {J-Hearts} turn, and then both players checked the {Q-Diamonds} river.

Tran turned over {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for a pair of jacks, but it was no good as Minieri revealed {K-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a winning pair of kings. Both players are off to a good start here on Day 1b and well above the starting stack.
