Tran Makes Sick Call With Deuces; Alcober Falters

On one of the last hands of the night we found Benjamin Alcober and Nghi Van Tran looking at a {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop. Alcober bet 32,000 only to be raised to 65,000 by Tran. Alcober called and they both checked the {9-Spades} turn.

Alcober pushed out 165,000 on the {2-Diamonds} river and Tran went into the tank.

"This is so sick if I call," Tran said. "I don't have much."

Eventually Tran called and Alcober showed {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for nothing but king-high. Tran jumped up and down and showed {3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for a rivered pair of deuces. The table burst into laughter and Alcober took a major hit from Tran's river call.

Alcober, who was at one point the chip leader today, has now fallen to 789,500.
