JC Tran opened in the cutoff and action folded to Benny Glaser in the big blind. As Glaser was eyeing Tran's short stack, Tran told Glaser he had 14,000 behind before saying, "C'mon baby, double me up". Glaser, perhaps not wanting to grant Tran his wish just yet, called.
On the first draw Glaser took one card to Tran's two. He then checked to Tran, who threw out a bet. Glaser made the call to send the two to the second draw.
Both players drew one on the second draw and action checked through to the final draw where again they each took just one card. At this point Glaser checked and Tran fired off a bet, leaving himself 1,500 behind. Glaser did not take too long before making the call and was shown , a hand he could not beat. Though Tran did not in fact receive a full double-up, he will undoubtedly be satisfied chipping up prior to the final break of the day. Glaser, meanwhile, has struggled to get much momentum going throughout Day 1.
