Hung Tran

Qing Liu and Hung Tran are sitting side-by-side as the number one and number two stacks, respectively.

However, that hasn't stopped the pair from waging warfare against one another.

In the first hand, Liu opened to 3,200,000 from the cutoff and Tran called from the big blind.

The flop came {10-Spades}{6-Spades}{j-Spades} and Liu continued for 3,000,000. Tran called.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} to put a fourth spade on the board and both players checked.

The river brought the {2-Clubs} and Liu snap-called Tran's bet of 7,000,000.

Qing Liu showed {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} to take down the pot with a set as he caught Tran bluffing off with {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.

In the very next hand, Tran limped from the small blind and Liu checked.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{a-Spades}. Tran put out 1,500,000 and Liu called.

Both players would check the {k-Spades} before the {q-Spades} came on the river. Tran fired out 6,000,000 and Liu snap-called his river bet a second time.

This time, Tran had the goods with the {8-Spades}{6-Spades} for the flush.
