JC Tran: 'I'm Not 100% Happy with How I Played'
JC Tran entered the 2013 WSOP Main Event final table as the chip leader but only made it to fifth place before finding himself on the rail. Tran still took down more than $2.1 million but it was clear the veteran pro was disappointed. Tran speaks candidly to the poker media following his elimination about how he felt about the way he played and what it's like getting so close and coming up short. Tran also offers refreshing perspective on what's really important in his life when he speaks about expecting his second child in just a few weeks.
When you are completely card dead there is nothing, nothing you can do about it. When I went out this year at the feature table the 4th day of the WSOP, I couldn't make a pair. I felt like a fool but you cant manufacture hands aganist good players. JC held 0 pairs at the final table. Still, he was clearly the best player there.
JC Tran, by the words spoken here, has just helped my game in a huge way. With all of his success and poker knowledge, he has with such grace, admitted he is still learning and at the final table of the WSOP, no less! This as compared to the cocky attitude of some players who feel they already know it all and can't be told anything.....speaks volumes about his heart and soul.
