Jake Schindler opened to 20,000 from under the gun and Stephen Chidwick three-bet to 55,000 from the button. The action returned to Schindler, and he moved all in for nearly 550,000 and Chidwick called all in for 303,000.

Chidwick: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Schindler: {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

With Chidwick at-risk and needing to improve, the {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop changed little, but it would be the {A-Diamonds} on the turn that would thrust him into the lead.

The river landed the {5-Diamonds} and Chidwick doubled through to 626,000 as Schindler dropped to 242,000 in chips.
