Tran began playing poker in the mid-1970s and first finished in the money of a World Series of Poker (WSOP) event in 1989 in the $2,000 no limit hold 'em event. In the same year he finished 24th in the $10,000 no limit hold'em main event.
In 1992, Tran set the all-time record for paid final tables in one year with 6. Despite this, he failed to finish higher than 3rd in any event that year.
Tran also made one final table in the WSOP main event, finishing 5th in 1996. He narrowly missed out on winning a second WSOP bracelet in 2004 when he finished 2nd to John Hennigan in the $5,000 limit hold'em event.
Tran has been under what he calls a "curse" after selling his one and only World Series of Poker bracelet for an undisclosed amount. Since selling the bracelet Tran has not won another.
Tran made a World Poker Tour (WPT) final table in January 2006, finishing 5th in the Gold Strike World Poker Open.
Tran is single, but has two children.
