There will be no repeat champion in this $2,500 PLO event, as last year's winner J.C. Tran was eliminated a short while ago. Tran was knocked out by a player currently enjoying a massage and noise-canceling headphones. With that hand, the player appears to have the chip lead, but unfortunately he is not interested at the moment in sharing his name.
The night is nearly through, however. There are about 40 minutes left in this, the last level to be played. So once all of the hands have been dealt and the massage is done, we'll be able to report his name soon enough.
