Stephen Chidwick - 6th Place.

Calen McNeil raised from middle position, and Todd Brunson called from the small blind. Stephen Chidwick three-bet from the big blind, and McNeil made it four-bets. Brunson called, and Chidwick five-bet for less than another full bet. Brunson and McNeil both called.

McNeil fired into the side pot after Brunson checked the {3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop. Brunson called. The turn came {6-Hearts}, and Brunson checked once more. McNeil bet.

"How did I get into this mess?" Brunson wondered aloud. Finally, he folded.

McNeil: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Chidwick: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{x-}{x-}

McNeil's aces, flush draw and low draw had Chidwick almost dead. The river brought another 8, and McNeil scooped the massive pot, sending Chidwick to the rail.
