Tran takes home Premier League title

1 December 2008

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- JC Tran bested a field of 13 top professionals to emerge victorious in the third Premier League. Adorning PKR clothing for the event, Tran battled his way through an amazing series of heats to reach the final table with the chip lead and take down the top prize of $300,000.

Now in its third year, Tran claimed the Premier League title on his debut at the coveted tournament, defeating Tony G in a heated clash after over an hour of intense Heads-up action. His record of 1-1-2-2-1-4 from six earlier heats gave him a deserved chip lead as he moved onto a final table filled to the brim with superstar talent, including the likes of Juha Helppi, Tom Dwan, Roland De Wolfe and reigning WSOP Champion Peter Eastgate.

JC Tran is the first professional poker player to represent and the superb win comes just three days after Tran took to the virtual felt with fellow APT ambassadors Nam Le, Chino Rheem and Quinn Do in a special Pro Bounty Tournament held on the next-gen site. The event attracted 1,130 runners – the largest ever field for a bounty tournament – all vying for the chance to play against the 'Poker Pack' and for a shot at a $5k APT Manila package.

Satellites to the APT Manila are rolling right now on with the chance to qualify for as little as $2.56.
