Su Hao and Fedor Holz are tangling plenty and while Holz was having the best of it earlier things seem to be going the Chinese player’s way at present.
Pre-flop it was Hao who was the aggressor, making it 25,000 to go on the button, with Holz making the call from the big blind.
The German checked the flop over to Hao, who continuation bet 39,000, which Holz called to swell the pot to 130,000. The turn saw Holz check again and after some deliberation, Hao checked it right back.
Perhaps sensing an opportunity to steal the pot when the hit the river, Holz reached for chips and fired for 75,000, only to see Hao call immediately.
Holz tabled for bottom pair, but that was not enough to beat Hao’s and the Chinese player took down a decent sized pot to almost draw level for the chip lead.
