Hand #50: Vivek Rajkumar opened to 450,000 from the button with {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}, Stephen Chidwick called from the big blind with {j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and the flop fell {j-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts}. Action checked to Rajkumar, he bet 300,000 and Chidwick flatted with his pair of jacks.

A {q-Spades} landed on the turn, Chidwick tapped the table and Rajkumar bet 850,000. Chidwick check-called and a {6-Hearts} landed on the river. Chidwick again checked and Rajkumar moved all in, putting Chidwick to the test for his remaining 2,900,000.

Chidwick instantly moved all of his time extension chips into the middle, signifying that he was going to be hitting the tank. Just a minute after starting to think, Chidwick called the all-in bet of Rajkumar and was good with his pair of jacks, catching a bluff from the chipleader for a double.
