Furqan Tanwir bet 500,000 on the river and when Tyng Low called, Furqan mucked his hand, so Tyng was awarded the pot without having to show his hand. Furqan’s stack fell to about 800,000.
That pot took Tyng’s stack north of 3.8 million, putting him second in chips. He was the winner of the 2011 Summer Poker Open Championship, so he’ll be playing in the Tournament of Champions Invitational free-roll on Saturday.
The lead now belongs to Nikolaos Platis, who is up to ~4.5 million, with Po Ying’s 2.2 million on his right.
Thomas Beccari is holding at around 3.3 million.
