Stephen Chidwick

An open raise by Stephen Chidwick for 1,200,000 was called by James Chen and they headed to the {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop. Once Chen had checked his option, Chidwick made it 900,000 to go and the call of Chen followed. This brought them to the {3-Hearts} turn and Chen checked over to Chidwick, who fired a second barrel of 3,000,000.

The call of Chen delivered the biggest pot of the heads-up duel so far and the {9-Hearts} came on the river with Chen checking the third street in a row. Chidwick emptied the clip with a bet of 10,100,000 and Chen gave it some consideration before paying it off.

Chidwick rolled over {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for top set and that left Chen with a mountain to climb, as Chidwick rocketed into a 10-1 lead.

"I called pretty light," Chen said in table chat to Chidwick.
