Stephen Chidwick

Rui Cao limped the hijack with a pair of dimes, David Benefield called behind in the cutoff with {j-Clubs}{9-Spades} and Stephen Chidwick moved all in with {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. Cao shoved over the top, Benefield folded and the remaining two tabled their hands.

Stephen Chidwick: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Rui Cao: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The dealer spread out {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and Cao was in an optimal spot to take down Chidwick. A {k-Clubs} turn card had Chidwick in need of a bullet.

The river came down a {9-Hearts} and Cao took down the pot with his dimes, eliminating Chidwick from the tournament in ninth place.
