James Chen won two pots to earn himself two big blinds and climb to 3,900,000, then raised to 1,200,000 and picked up a call by Stephen Chidwick.
The flop came and Chidwick checked to Chen, who bet 800,000. Just a few moments later, Chidwick check-raised the pot and Chen sunk back into his chair before eventually calling all in.
Chen was in trouble and needed running diamonds, straight cards or an eight to avoid the elimination. The turn gave him a gutshot, however, the river was a blank and Chen's bid for a maiden bracelet came to an end. He receives a massive payday of $1,000,253 while Chidwick earns the biggest victory of his poker career so far.
A recap of today's action and all the winner quotes are to follow.
