Secondary Table: Tran Seizes Lead

Shamus • Level 34: 150,000-300,000, 50,000 ante
JC Tran

Hand #192: JC Tran — who after moving up to around 30 million the previous hand — raised to 650,000 from the button and won the blinds and antes.

Hand #193: Matthew Reed raised to 600,000 from under the gun, and Tran reraised to 1.5 million from the cutoff. It folded back to Reed who thought just a beat and folded.

Hand #194: Amir Lehavot raised to 600,000 from the button and got one caller in Marc McLaughlin playing from the small blind. The flop came {9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{10-Spades} and after McLaughlin quickly checked, Lehavot set out a bet of 750,000 and McLaughlin called.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and another check from McLaughlin, and this time Lehavot checked behind. The river brought the {J-Clubs}. McLaughlin checked one more time, and Lehavot sat in thought for a while before checking as well. McLaughlin showed {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a pair of tens, and Lehavot mucked.

Hand #195: Tran raised to 650,000 from under the gun, then Jay Farber reraised to 1.4 million from the hijack seat. It folded back to Tran who called, and the flop came {8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Both players checked, then the turn brought the {2-Hearts}. Tran led this time for 1.55 million and Farber called.

The river brought the {9-Diamonds}. Tran carved out a bet of 2.25 million and Farber instantly folded.

Tran goes to break with a stack of around 35 million now, currently leading the final 11.
