Tony G Flops the Nuts to Double Through Tran

Tony G

Dan Kelly opened for 3,200 under the gun and received calls from JC Tran on the button and Tony G in the small blind. All three players proceeded to check the {10-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} flop, leading to the {2-Diamonds} on the turn. Both Tony G and Kelly checked to Tran, who bet 5,200. Only Tony G made the call, but then he checked the {3-Spades} river.

Tran eyed his opponent's stack and then put out a stack of yellow T5,000 chips, enough to put Tony G all in. The boisterous "G" snap-called and rolled over {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for the nuts. Tran just shook his head and revealed {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a rivered set. Tran and Tony G had a brief conversation on the latter's river check after the hand.
