Tran on the Rise

Kenny Tran is in business.
Kenny Tran has been hanging around 20,000 for most of the afternoon. He finally cracked the 30,000-mark in a recent hand against Tom Guise. Tran moved all in for about 10,000 after the flop came down {A-Clubs} {2-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}. Guise, holding {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}, must have figured he could rely on his club-and-set draw if Tran held an ace. It turned out that Tran did indeed hold an ace -- he had {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} for top two pair. The turn {A-Spades} took all of the drama out the hand by making a full house for Tran. The river {9-Hearts} completed the board.

Guise dropped to 31,000, while Tran is up to 32,000.
