Hall Rivers Set

We stopped by J.C. Tran's table to ask him what a guy who gets severely short-stacked in the early-going of a major tournament listens to on his iPod while he's grinding his stack back up. While we were there, a player led out for 1,250 on a flop of {10-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {9-Hearts} and was raised by Tom Hall to 3,650. The small blind called.

Both players checked the {Q-Diamonds} turn and the {J-Clubs} river, with Hall showing down {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} for a rivered set of jack that beat his opponent's turned pair of queens, {A-?} {Q-?}.

For what it's worth, Tran is listening to some R&B. Currently in the rotation are Craig David and Ginuwine. He said he has Eminem but it's more for when he's rocking the big stack.

"You won't catch me listenin' to Hannah Montana, that's for sure," said Tran.
