Soon after three handed begins, Zollo wounds Lytle significantly, reversing their chip stacks when Lytle is trapped on a board, where Zollo flops a straight and then improves to a weak flush on a pairing river.
Then, it’s Tran’s turn to take from Lytle, who is counting his stack and looking for something to get in.
Tran raises full pot pre, folds out Zollo, and Lytle calls. The flop is , possibly favorable to Lytle in the big. Tran fires 75,000 into into 150,000 after Lytle checks.
John calls once but gives up on the . He’s now under 500,000.
Lytle – 400,000
Tran – 1,000,000
Zollo – 900,000
Then, Lytle is all in, shoving the turn on for his last 211,000.
Zollo looks frustrated but clearly can’t like the turn without a straight or major redraw. He lets it go.
Then, another pot. Lytle dark shoves into Tran on a brutal flop, but it’s a pure cooler. Lytle flops the nuts and gets called by a worse flush. Rigged!
Suddenly, Lytle has 700,000 again and it’s game on. However, it’s not to be.
First, Tran smashes top set against John, who goes with a medium wrap. Tran calls for the board to pair, which it immediately does, leaving John dead and short. Tran doubles past a million.
Now with less than ten blinds, John raises dark from the button and Tran pots it. The two get it all in but his time Lytle is in a lot of trouble with . Tran is without a pair but with dominating equity. Lytle jokes that he is ahead, but falls to top two pair, as Tran had gone with , when the board runs out face cards and no fours.
Exciting run for John, who brings big action to every hand. He takes $3,434.
