TRAN WINS FOR PKR!
01 December 2008
WSOP hero takes down Premier League III in style...
JC Tran bested a field of 13 top professionals to
emerge victorious in the third PartyPoker
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.
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.
Tran is the first professional poker player to represent
PKR.com 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 PKR.com bounty tournament – all vying
for the chance to play against the ‘Poker Pack’
and for a shot at a $5k APT Manila package.

Pack' draw the crowds at PKR
28 November 2008
PKR has never seen a night like it as 1,130 entrants
took their chance to play against the ‘Poker
Pack’ in an exclusive APT Pro Bounty tournament.
With hundreds more railing and following a live Q&A
on the PKR.com forums, the tournament proved the most
popular cash buy-in tournament ever to run on PKR.
Of the four pros, David “Chino” Rheem
lasted longest, finishing in a highly creditable 486th
place after wreaking havoc at the tables, leaving
many players in his wake JC Tran exited in 524th while
Quinn DO took 564th place. Nam Le was crippled early
when his two-pair ran into a set. He couldn’t
recover and departed first of the bounties, in 839th
place. In addition to the unbeatable poker story,
each player who knocked out one of the superstars
of poker also bagged a free shot at a $5k package
to renew rivalries against the ‘Poker Pack’
in the APT Manila event.
his solid performance, Rheem claimed bragging rights
over his three friends, not to mention a $500 last-longer
to spice things up. After his early bath, Nam leapt
onto a 41 Heads Up Phase Sit & Go, to the astonishment
of one (un)lucky player. Despite millions in earnings,
a packed and supportive rail and years of experience
at the top, Nam failed to overcome the PKR player’s
resilience and accepted defeat after several minutes!
Pro Bounty tournament was eventually won by Redshape
who scooped $4,972 and a shot at the APT Manila seat.
Each player was accurately represented in the game
via the FaceGen™ application (see attached screenshots).
Prodger, Marketing Director, PKR said: “We’ve
never seen a response to a tournament like it, and
it shows just how much respect PKR players have for
these four players. It’s been an honour to host
them on the PKR.com site and we look forward to sending
a strong PKR team to team up with them again at the
to the APT Manila are running 24/7 at PKR.com. Players
may qualify for as little as $2.56.

a lifetime this Thursday night as poker legends JC
Tran, Nam Le, David ‘Chino’ Rheem and
Quinn Do take to the virtual felt in a special $10k
guaranteed Asian Poker Tour Pro Bounty.
The $22 buy-in event will take place at 20:00 GMT
on Thursday 27th November. As well as offering all
players a chance to scoop a share of the $10k prize
pool, players who eliminate Nam, Chino or Quinn will
find themselves with a free shot at winning a $5k
package to play in the APT Manila (worth $270).
Tran is the #1 ranked player in the ESPN-Bluff
power rankings with over $6.8m in career tournament
is one of a select few to have scooped both a World
Series bracelet and a World Poker Tour title. Over
the past five years, JC has recorded a staggering
23 WSOP cashes (including seven final tables) and
11 WPT cashes (with five final tables).
‘Chino’ Rheem was one of the November
Nine who made the historic 2008 Main Event final table.
A fearless high stakes poker pro and one of the most
compelling characters in the game, Chino won $1.7m
for his seventh place finish together with several
million more fans.
Le is one of the hottest tournament players on the
circuit, reaching final tables in some of the biggest
events around. An LA Poker Classic fourth (behind
Ivey and friend Quinn Do), a Macau High Roller victory
and recent WPT Festa al Lago second have netted Nam
more than $1.8 million this year alone.
bracelet winner Quinn Do reached his first WPT final
table earlier this year, exiting honourably in second
place for $909K behind Phil Ivey in the LA Poker Classic.
A third in the recent Macau High Rollers event won
by friend Nam Le increased the profile of this silent
but deadly destroyer.
only will players be able to rail the stars and ask
questions, PKR will also be opening a special forum
Q&A during the event to provide another opportunity
for players to ask questions of their heroes.
Tran, Nam Le and Quinn Do are official Ambassadors
of the Asian Poker Tour (www.asianpt.com).
