Chidwick Back Doors Into a Flush and Wins a Big One

Webjoker • Level 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Juha Helppi grimaces when shown the winning hand

Stephen Chidwick opened the button for just slightly more than a min raise with five 25,000 chips. Paul Newey instantly folded his small blind, Juha Helppi three bet to 360,000 from the big blind. Chidwick made the call. Helppi had won many button versus big blind situations versus Chidwick before, but wasn't going to this time around.

Helppi bet out 375,000 on {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs} and Chidwick made the call. Both players checked the {3-Diamonds} on the turn now and the {6-Diamonds} completed the board.

Helppi checked to Chidwick. The British pro bet out 775,000 with just 850,000 behind. Helppi had a though decision and it took several minutes before he would make one. At one point he cracked a smile, seemingly puzzled about what to do. He then grabbed the 775,000 chips he needed to call and it looked like he was going to shove them forward. He changed his mind though, cracked another smile, and held on to them for a bit. He eventually did shove them forward to call.

Helppi's face would soon display disappointment as he was shown {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for the nuts by Chidwick. Helppi mucked.
