Getting your first recorded live win is always nice but for most it’s a 16th place min-cash in a random Wednesday night £40 buy-in. Not so for Gioi Tran who collected £6,700 after a three-handed deal. A £100 saver had also been made at the beginning of the final table making David Garvin a very happy boy (but, retrospectively, no one else).
