Matthew Gonzales

Stephen Chidwick raised the pot for 900,000 in total out of the small blind and Matthew Gonzales came along from the big blind with 2,400,000 behind to see the {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Chidwick continued right away for the size of the pot, 1,800,000 in total, Gonzales moved all in and Chidwick called off the additional 575,000 to put Gonzales at risk.

Matthew Gonzales: {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Stephen Chidwick: {k-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Gonzales had a ton of outs with his pair, straight draw and flush draw, and some of them vanished on the {j-Spades} turn as Chidwick picked up a flush draw himself. The {q-Spades} on the river further improved Chidwick to a flush and that sent Gonzales to the rail in 3rd place for $699,364.

There will now be a short break to set up the duel for the bracelet between Chidwick and James Chen.
