Another sponsored pro parts ways with their brand as Sacramento based poker pro J.C. Tran finds himself like 99.9% of the rest of the runners in any given tournament – a free agent.
Unlike the recent departures of pros from the PokerStars and Ultimate Poker rosters, this probably didn’t come as a surprise for Tran. When Tran was originally signed it was in late August of 2013 as a result of him being the chipleader at the November Nine. Now, one year later it’s not too hard to speculate that he signed a one-year deal which has now come to an end.
Plus, the big-time Sacto Kings fan is currently living in a no-internet poker zone and as he’s never made a secret of his dedication to family, a deal with 888poker might not make much sense for either side.
Fear not though, as previously reported, Team 888 will have a patch wearing pro at poker’s big dance in the form of the recently signed Brazilian Bruno Foster Politano.
