J.C. Tran from Sacramento, CA won Event 30 $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha at the 2009 World Series of Poker and took home $235,685 in prize money.

After the tournament, Tran claimed that his win in the 2008 WSOP helped him to win a second gold bracelet:

"Yes, definitely.  Getting that first bracelet out of the way takes a lot of pressure off you.  I definitely would not want to finish second here.  It's a horrible feeling.  But the win last year meant the pressure was off.  I was more comfortable and more relaxed when I cam in.  My head was clear.  I was not too worried about trying to win.  Just play poker and let it come to me, instead of forcing it.  And, it came to me," Tran said.
