Nghi Van Tran Getting Back Into The Groove


Nghi Van Tran is trying to shake off the cobwebs of defeat that were just smothered over him by Will Jaffe. Jaffe raised to 120,000 on the button and Tran called in the big blind. The flop was {Q-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {J-Diamonds} and Tran check-called a 135,000 Jaffe bet. The turn of {7-Hearts} was checked through and action continued on the {10-Hearts} river. It was Tran who led for 150,000 and Jaffe folded.

Then in the next hand Joseph Kuether raised to 120,000 on the button and Tran three-bet to 230,000 from the small blind to close off the action.
