Event #12: $100,000 Challenge

Start-of-the-Day Chip Leader Eliminated

Chad_Holloway • Level 11: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Stephen Chidwick

Stephen Chidwick began the day tied for the chip lead with Brian Rast, but things did not go his way. He lost the majority of his stack after losing a flip to Martin Jacobson, and despite doubling in betweem, he was just finished off by the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event champ.

It happened when Chidwick shoved for roughly 80,000 from the hijack and Jacobson called from the cutoff. The rest of the field folded and the cards were turned up.

Chidwick: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Jacobson: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Chidwick needed a lot of help to crack Jacobson's cowboys, but he didn't even get a sweat as the board ran out an uneventful {6-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}.
