Alex Epstein raised the pot for 1,050,000 first to act and Chidwick came along from the small blind. The flop brought {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and Chidwick checked over to Epstein, who continued for 1,200,000 and picked up a call by Chidwick.

The {4-Diamonds} fell on the turn and Chidwick checked once more. Epstein emptied the clip and moved all in for 4,050,000. That sent Chidwick into the think tank and the Brit eventually made the call to create the second-biggest pot of the tournament so far.

Alex Epstein: {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Stephen Chidwick: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Epstein held the nut flush draw and needed a spade and a spade only to avoid elimination, and the {2-Hearts} on the river was a blank to send him to the rail in 5th place for $359,320, while Chidwick took over the lead once more with four players remaining.
