Ian Tang opened to 60,000 from early position, Karam-Olivier Kamal three-bet to 100,000, and when action folded back around to Tang, he four-bet shoved for 468,000. Kamal got a count and made the call, putting Tang at risk.

Tang: {k-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Kamal: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

A classic race was underway. The board ran out {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, and Tang was the first casualty of the final table.

Brady Hinnegan Takes the Lead

Brady Hinnegan just took the chip lead after a big pot where three players saw the turn for 130,000 each.

The action started when Hinnegan raised preflop to 60,000 and Tomas Larivee Magni called from the hijack. Man Sze Chow was in the big blind and she called also.

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Chow checked. Hinnegan bet 130,000. Magni and Chow called.

The turn was the {4-Spades} and Chow checked again. Hinnegan made it 225,000 to go and Magni called again in position. The action came back to Chow. She counted her stack and seemed ready to make a move, but eventually folded.

The river was the {k-Hearts} and Hinnegan waited a moment before checking. Magni checked and Hinnegan turned over {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. Magni mucked.

Chow seemed to regret folding, "You fold if I shove the turn?"

Hinnegan shrugged and collected the pot and took the chip lead.
