Fan Liu kept on raising and re-raising in consecutive hands to rake in a considerable amount of chips. The last one was when James McCarty bet 30,000 after the flop to be re-raised by Fan Liu who had the shortest stack at that point.
McCarty called Liu's bet of 90,000.
McCarty checked and Liu led out with a 100,000 bet. McCarty stayed in this hand and called.
After McCarty checked, Liu fired another 100,000. James would spend a lot of time in the tank before he finally got his yellow chips and called the hundred grand.
Liu excitedly flipped his hand and showed the ladies as James mucked his hand. At this point, the chip count among the three have almost evened out.
But just seconds after this hand, the players started talking about a chop. Meaning the players can agree to split the prize pool among the top three places. We'll update you in a bit as the tournament director explains the situation to them.
