Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Preflop Pandemonium Ends with Tran on Top

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

The action started with a player in middle position open-raising to 2,800. JC Tran re-raised to 7,700 on the button, only to see a four-bet to 20,000 and change from the player in the small blind. The big blind got out of the way and the original raiser went all in for about 100,000. Undeterred, JC announced he was all-in for his last 76,000. The four-bettor slid his cards into the muck.

"Aces?" Tran's opponent asked.

Tran: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}
Opponent: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

...Yep. The board ran out {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, propelling Tran into one of the chip leads with just over 150,000.
