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

Tran Slipping

JC Tran raised to 5,500 under the gun and Elliot Smith made the call from the big blind. Both players checked the {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop, leading to the {6-Clubs} turn. Smith took the initiative and led out for 7,000, Tran called, and the {Q-Spades} hit the river.

Again Smith led out for 7,000 and Tran called, the latter mucking when the former rolled over {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for the rivered nuts.
