Cary Katz is still over 1,000,000 chips, but he’s no longer the Event #4 final table chip leader.
That’s because Danny Tang just doubled through Katz, showing off some speech play in the process.
Action was picked up with Rainer Kempe and Anson Tsang calling before Katz raised to 150,000.
Tang, who was on the button, moved all-in for 412,000 and that move forced folds from both limpers. Katz wasn’t as easy to shed, as he used a time extension while in the tank.
As his opponent thought, Tang started talking to Katz.
They went back and forth about what the other player could have. As their discussion died down, Tang said he felt like Katz would call.
“My speech play is so good, but how do I flip?” Tang said and shortly after Katz called.
Tang had to hold with to Katz’s and he did on the runout.
Both players are now on either side of 1,000,000 chips.
