Event 49 - Tran-Pion!! JC Takes Down First Bracelet!
It looked as if it might be going this way and indeed it has. Here's how the final hand played out!
Tran raised it up preflop to $215,000 and Nielsen called.
The flop fell 8♥ Q♠ 2♥. Nielsen checked, Tran bet out $275,000 and Nielsen called.
The turn was the 4♦, and after Nielsen checked again, Tran now bet $900,000 only to find Nielsen shoving on him all-in.
Tran had him covered and made the call with K-Q, which was miles in front of Nielsen, who also had top pair, but unfortunately for him J-Q, with a slightly but crucially worse kicker.
The river blanked, meaning JC's hand was good for the pot and also meaning that with Rasmus Nielsen out in 2nd for $389,557, JC Tran is our CHAMPION, winning $631,170 and his first WSOP bracelet!
JC rushed over to high five his massive crew of followers. The best player never to have won a bracelet, as he is known in many fields, will no longer be called that, as he picks up his first piece of World Series gold and takes down one of the coveted gold WSOP bracelets.
