We caught the action on the river in a sizable heads-up pot between Singapore’s Bryan Huang and a tablemate. With the board reading Huang, sitting in the big blind, fired out a 13,500 bet, which was roughly pot sized. While Huang’s opponent tanked for a minute or so he elected to fold and Huang scooped the pot to climb to just over 40,000.
Another player whose fortune is on the rise in Chance Kornuth, who is now sitting on a veritable castle of chips after taking down a sizable three-way pot.
Preflop Kornuth raised to 750 from middle position finding two callers from a player in the cutoff and the big blind to take the action three-way to a rainbow flop of .
After the big blind checked Kornuth continuation bet 1,300 with both opponents’s making the call. The turn kept the board rainbow and brought checks from all three players.
The river saw the big blind lead out for 5,050 causing Kornuth to look over and ask how much more his opponent had behind – 17,100 more – before announcing “raise” making it 14,000 in total.
The player in the cutoff folded but the big blind opted to make the call and turned over for a turned wheel. However, Kornuth went one better and turned over for the six-high straight to scoop the 34,500 pot while his opponent dropped to 7,650.
