Ugly Chop for Chidwick

KaleGozer • Level 17: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

In the previous hand, Stephen Chidwick was all in with {K-Clubs}{4-Clubs} against Igor Kurganov's {K-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and the two chopped it up. This time, Chidwick was in the small blind and he limped in. JC Alvarado checked his option.

The flop brought {8-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Chidwick bet 40,000. Alvarado shoved, Chidwick double-checked, then called off his stack of around 350,000.

Stephen Chidwick: {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
JC Alvarado: {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

Chidwick was miles ahead of Alvarado, who was nearly drawing dead. After the {7-Clubs} turn and {4-Hearts} river, though, a straight hit the board to chop the pot up.
