$560 Buy-In Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 15:  Blinds 1,500/3,000/500 ante

On a flop of  Q Q 6, the player in seat 9 shoved and Thong Tran snap-called, showing pocket 6s for a full house.  His opponent was in bad shape holding KQ for trips and needing a King or Queen (4 outs) to survive.

River was an 8 and seat 9 hit the rail.  Tran chipped up to about 235k, putting him among the chip leaders.

With ten minutes remaining in the level, they stopped the clock and ordered all tables to play 4 more hands, then bag up for the night.
