Stephen Chidwick

There were about 13,000 chips already in the middle and the board read {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs} when we got to the table. Stephen Chidwick bet 7,000 from the small blind and Chance Kornuth called from the hijack.

The turn brought the {K-Hearts} and Chidwick bet 13,000. Kornuth called.

The {4-Diamonds} fell on the river, Chidwick shoved for 39,000, and Kornuth called with the larger of the two stacks by a wide margin. Chidwick tabled {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} and his flopped top set was best against Kornuth, who held {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, so he took the pot to double up.
