Chidwick Faces Resistance

zedmaster84 • Level 38: 3,000,000-6,000,000, 6,000,000 ante

Adam Owen opened to 16 million in the cutoff with {J-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Stephen Chidwick three-bet to 38 million with {K-Spades}{10-Hearts} to pounce on the short stack. Owen was having none of it and jammed to rake in the pot.

Chidwick made it 12 million to go with {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and Pascal Lefrancois called with the {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} from the big blind. The {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop brought a check by Lefrancois and Chidwick continued for 7.5 million, then faced a check-raise to 28 million by Lefrancois.

The call by the Brit followed and the duo headed to the {K-Clubs} turn, on which both players checked. Lefrancois hit his dream card with the {Q-Diamonds} river and bet 55 million, Chidwick folded.
