Tang, That Hurts

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Chi Daniel Tang

Daniel Tang (pictured) and Anthony Chimkovitch clashed in what may turn out to be an important pot in the context of the table they currently share and the tournament overall.

We joined the action with a complete board of {3-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{9-Spades} and a pot of around 125,000. Tang faced a bet from Chimkovitch of 49,000 and was in what looked be an uncomfortable tank.

"I knew I shouldn't have checked back." aid Tang, obviously referring to a previous street. But, agonised, Tang made the call. He was shown {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} by Chimkovitch, and slammed 49,000 down onto the table in disgust with himself.

"I never should have checked back!" he muttered to himself as he departed the table, down to 511,000 at the final break of the day. Chimkovitch has 1.4million chips and has been in and around the chip lead all day.
