An Tran

When we think of Vietnamese born poker players, most of us think of Scotty Ngyuen and others. But, there's another pro out there that should be getting more recognition a some of the best to come out of Vietnam.

His name is An Tran and he's bene tearing up the poker tour for a long time.

He was born in Saigon Vietnam in 1952. He now lives in Las Vegas where he plays poker professionally. He started playing poker before the internet was around in the 1970's and has accumulated over $2.6 million in live tournament winnings since then.

Almost half of his winnings have come at the WSOP where he was won almost $1 million. He has 44 cashes and believe it or not, half of them are final tables. Hess made an astounding 22 final sat the WSOP.

You'd think with all those finals he would have many bracelets. Tran has only been able to close the deal once in those final tables. I'm 1991 he won his first bracelet in a pot limit Omaha event for $90,000.

Hess come close numerous times placing 2nd, and 3rd plenty of times.

Tran has also final tabled the Main Event of the WSOP. In 1996 he would go on to place 5th in the main event bringing in more than $128,000. This pales in comparison to today's prize pools, which makes his $2 million in winnings that more impressive

His biggest score was in 2004 when he placed in the limit hold em event for $170,000.

Tran also has final tables on the WPT. Mainly side events, never reaching the final of the main event. He does however have a few wins in these side events to make up for it.

Tran blames his misfortunes and not winning a bracelet in 22 tries due to his own actions. He sold his bracelet afar winning it and hasn't been able to win another one since. He says he's cursed because he sold his bracelet.

Cursed or not, he can still play poker and he's still winning. That's A CURSE I WOULDN'T MIND HAVING. One where you win money!
