Lots of people don't know that I am a great person away from poker. While I'm intense at the table, I'm a really nice, family-oriented guy. I have a great girlfriend. Without Heather, there is no way I could be as successful as I am. She helps take care of everything while I am away, and is very patient with me being on the road so much. Besides that, I am a golf freak and used to be a degenerate (laughing). ”  J.C. Tran said on qoute.
