Henry Tran Up To His Old Tricks?

donpeters • Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante

If you watched the ESPN broadcast of the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event, you are likely familiar with the slow play of Henry Tran. It now appears Tran may be up to his old tricks, taking extended periods of time to play out each hand he is involved in, and he's fairly active at the table.

For those that need a refresher, you can watch the following video clip of the 2012 WSOP on ESPN broadcast involving Tran below. If you're looking for a specific incident with Tran taking a long time in a hand, go to the 5:30 mark of the following video:

"Floor, Table 52!" yelled the dealer over on Table 52.

We looked up to see that this was Tran's table and decided to head over. When we arrived just after the floor staff did, we saw that Tran was involved in a pot and that Steve Buckner, who isn't one to mince words at all, had called the clock because Tran was taking too long in his opinion.

"I've never called the clock on someone in my life, sir," Buckner said to the floor, while Tran was contemplating his decision.

The floor did issue the clock on Tran, and he took his time before he eventually folded.

"What he's doing is affecting everyone else's play," Buckner continued. "He's gotta cut the sh*t."

It seemed one or two others at the table didn't think it was too much from Tran just yet and suggested Buckner maybe didn't need to call the clock just yet. But when the floor staff issues a clock on a player, it's generally for good reason.

"I flew from Florida, young man," Buckner said. "I need to get some hands in. I know what he's doing, and he's trying to get everyone heated. It's not my first rodeo."
