J.C. Tran goes 2-0 at Premier League III

J.C. Tran

The rest of the players at PartyPoker.com's Premier League III are probably wishing J.C. Tran was never invited, as the California pro pulled off another victory yesterday to go a perfect 2-0 in the series.

In just two sessions Tran has accumulated 20 points and looks to be a virtual lock to make it to the final table of Premier League III.

The second day of Premier League action actually started with Heat 3, in which Tom Dwan, Andy Black and the aforementioned Tran.

Surprisingly it was Peter Eastgate who busted first. The reigning World Champion had a very strong Day 1 at the Premier League and took down six points after losing to Tran in heads-up. In Heat 4 Eastgate made a move with 5 2 and Dwan busted him with J 9.

Dwan didn't stick around much longer than Eastgate, however, as Tran started his incredible run by busting the player known online as durrrr.

Finally the field dwindled until all that remained between Tran and first place was Coren. Tran went into heads-up play with $476,000 to Coren's $124,000.

Coren ended up getting it in good in her final hand with K K, but Tran spiked an ace on the flop with his A 6 in the hole.

It's shaping up to be a very interesting Premier League with Tran in the lead, Tony G and Helppi right behind him and the two women, Obrestad and Coren, right behind them. Dwan is in sixth place and looking to break through to the top three.
