J.C. Tran Wants to Be Player of the Year

Last year, J.C. Tran made a late season charge for Player of the Year honors. But like a midget sitting in a "big person" chair hoping to eat a meal atop the dining room table, he came up just short.

Header1This year, Tran is like John Parr, he’s a man on a mission. Or is that Man in Motion? Whatever. Fuck you.

Tran is currently second overall in Card Player’s POY race, trailing James Van Alstyne. Even though we have no idea how these rankings are calculated, he’ll surely surpass Van Alstyne with his current performance, as he’s stacked third overall at the WPT World Poker Challenge final table with 904k. Tran is joined WCP fave Mark Seif, who makes his first WPT final table since 2002. Seif is fifth overall at 325k.

The big stack going into the final table is David "The Dragon" Pham* with 1,655,000. Pham has been among the chip leaders the entire tournament, which we guess is impressive.

The other guys we don’t really care about round out the final table.

Just missing out on the TV final table were Erick Lindgren (10th) and Joe Sebok (13th).

    JC is also making a push for the WPT POY. Currently Joe Pelton is in the lead with 1600 points, followed by Daniel at 1300 and JC with 1000.
    Points are calculated on Final Table finishes.
    1st – 1000
    2nd – 700
    3rd – 600
    4th – 500
    5th – 400
    6th – 300
    7th(tv bubble) – 200
    With a third place finish today he will tie Pelton, and a 2nd or 1st will give him the lead with only 2 events left.
