Chidwick Doubles Into Chip Lead

Stephen Chidwick (Day 2)

No-Limit Hold'em

Stephen Chidwick was in early position and he cut out a raise to 8,500. Action came around to Devin Looney in the cutoff and he three-bet to 19,500. Action folded back to Chidwick who shipped all in over the top for 173,000. Looney went into the tank for some time before dropping forward a call.

Chidwick: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Looney: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The two were racing for Chidwick's tournament life heading to the flop. The dealer fanned {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}, giving Looney top pair but Chidwick the lead with a set of sixes. Looney found no help on the turn ({3-Spades}) or the river ({8-Spades}) and he was forced to ship a majority of his chips over to Chidwick. Chidwick is now sitting pretty with the chip lead of 359,000.
