Stephen Chidwick Wins Again
Table Of Contents
They say nothing in life is certain except death and taxes. Well, you can add Stephen Chidwick shipping major tournaments that he goes deep in to that limited list. Chidwick, the biggest tournament winning in the entire United Kingdom, found himself in the winner’s circle again this weekend, taking down a high roller event online at GGPoker.
Chidwick’s latest victory came in the $5,250 High Rollers Sunday Blade Opener. Only 42 players bought in and five of those walked away with some prize money.
David Peters busted in fifth for $21,771 with Seth Davies crashing out in fourth for $29,033. Daniel Dvoress’ exit in third place awarded him $38,716, and left Chidwick heads-up against Chidwick. The British star rarely loses once he reaches heads-up and he did not lose this time around. $68,848 made its way to Chidwick’s account while Pavlo Kolinkovskiy collected the $51,629 runner-up prize.
