Chidwick Loses to Shakerchi

Webjoker • Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante

Stephen Chidwick lost a big hand against Talal Shakerchi, where Shakerchi had seven-six on {5-}{J-}{8-}{4-}{9-}. Chidwick lost a bunch in that hand, but won some back the next hand.

With just 6,000 left, Chidwick opened to 600 from middle position. The player two seats down, in the cut off, made the call.

Chidwick bet out a 1,000 on {Q-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, and his opponent made the call.

Both players checked the {A-Spades} on the turn, and Chidwick bet out 1,500 once the {9-Hearts} completed the board. Chidwick's opponent made the call, but he mucked as the Brit showed {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a turned top pair.
