Tran Dodges the Ace

There are lots of chips over on Tom Hall's table, with Hall, Kristoffer Myhre and Bertrand Grospellier all battling each other relentlessly. It's been hard for short-stacked Theo Tran to find good spots.

He found one after Hall opened for 3,500 and the button player re-raised all in for a total of 16,900. Tran was in the big blind and re-shipped for 21,100, folding Hall. Tran's {K-Spades} {K-Spades} was up against the button's {A-Hearts} {J-Clubs} and successfully dodged the remaining aces in the deck, {Q-Spades} {4-Clubs} {9-Spades} {7-Spades} {K-Hearts}. With the blinds and the antes Tran is up to about 44,000.
