Chidwick Loses Chunk

After a series of raises Stephen Chidwick had his shorter stacked opponent all in. It was essentially a coinflip once the cards were turned over, Chidwick holding {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} while his opponent had {A-Spades}{j-Spades}. Both players had a great chance to take down the pot so long as the board went in their favor.

A {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop was positioned in the middle of the table, and Chidwick was immediately behind. Running straight cards or an eight would be his only savior. A {5-Diamonds} on the turn, and a {5-Spades} on the river finished off the hand and Chidwick was forced to send away about 30,000 of his stack.
