Day 1 of PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker started yesterday. Even though the buy-in was as high as $5200 the tournament still attracted a big starting field. 2144 players signed up for the WCOOP Main Event, many of them won their seat through satellites starting from just a few dollars. Thanks to that so many people took part in the tournament the prize pool became greater than the $10,000,000 guaranteed by PokerStars.
Out of 2144 players, 178 made it to Day 2 of the tournament. All of them are already guaranteed to get more money than the buy-in back. Among the survivors we find no one else than former WCOOP champion J.C. Tran (picture). He showed what a great player he really is on the bubble (before the money). J.C. Tran called a quite big raise from the player "MaxErosAmore" before the flop. The flop came 768. Both players checked. On the K turn, Tran betted 7,500 and "MaxErosAmore" mini-raised him. Tran didn't think for long before he went all-in. "MaxErosAmore" decided to fold after some time going through possible hands JC could have. Tran shows 44 for a bluff and hell breaks loose in the chat. "MaxErosAmore" calls J.C. Tran a lot of bad names. Tran took it all very relaxed and simply replied "It was good, right?".
Tran did it well, if Max was that worried why didnt he showed his cards? I don't believe he had something. Perhaps AT or a low pair too, but if wanted to win he had to bet post flop, he should have sent Tran to the ropes, and he didnt.
2144 players, 178 made it to Day 2 WHAT! thats some cut on day 1. as for JC 44 bluff, you got to love that...hahaha MaxErosAmore looses the plot and flips out hahaha Well pplayed JC 10,000,000 now thats what i call a payday..
