Chidwick Busted Right Away

mnuwwarah • Level 1: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante
Stephen Chidwick

If it wasn't the first hand, it was certainly one of the first hands, and it was a quick A$100K for British superstar Stephen Chidwick.

Three players saw an {8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop and action checked to Seth Davies, who bet 6,000 from the button. Alex Foxen made it 19,500 in the small blind and Chidwick cold-called in the big. Davies made it three to the {10-Diamonds}, which checked around. The river was an {8-Spades} and Foxen used a time extension then bet 70,000. Chidwick responded with an all-in shove. Davies thought briefly then got out of the way.

Foxen went deep into the tank, using all of his time extensions and muttering to himself. Finally, he slammed in some chips and Chidwick rolled over {a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. Foxen showed {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a turned flush and took it down while Chidwick headed to the rail.
