$25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Semi-Shootout

Huge Three-Way Pot

JC Tran from the Main Event

From the cutoff Matt Jarvis raised and he got called from the small and big blind. So far so good. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and JC Tran lead out for 1,100. Dypvik, who was in the big blind, called. Jarvis wasn't ready to see the turn and popped it up to 3,850. After some tanking both his opponents called.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and both blinds checked to Jarvis who bet 8,625. Folding didn't seem to be an option in this hand as both players made the call once again. On the river the {6-Hearts} hit and Tran went into the tank. He took a look a both his opponents stacks and eventually fired out a hefty bet of 19,800. Dypvik wasn't happy but after doing some calculations he threw in a large portion of his stack. Jarvis folded right away.

JC Tran turned over {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for the nut flush and Dypvik sighed as he shook his head and folded. "I should have folded", Dypvik said as he looked down at his small stack. "Did you have a set?", Dypvik asked Jarvis who replied and said, "I'm pretty sure I had the best hand until the river". Tran has taken a huge lead over his four opponents and that could be a huge factor as we will keep playing short handed poker.
