Chidwick's Better Six

• Taso 16


We were drawn over to Table 432 by a big pile of chips heaped in the middle of the felt. When we arrived, there was a heads-up pot in progress between Stephen Chidwick and Ylon Schwartz.

Chidwick: (x-x) / {3-} {A-} {4-} {6-} / (x)
Schwartz: (x-x) / {2-} {A-} {J-} {6-} / (x)

Chidwick was betting sixth when we joined, and we think it's fair to assume he was betting/raising from at least fourth street onward. Schwartz called that bet on sixth, then another one on seventh.

Chidwick showed {A-} {2-} {2-} / {3-} {A-} {4-} {6-} for the six-perfect. Schwartz had apparently been drawing to the wheel, too. He flashed {5-} {3-} / {2-} {A-} {J-} {6-} before mucking his last card. Sixty-five is no good, and Chidwick has found his first meaningful pot in a few orbits.

We'll count them down as soon as Chidwick finishes stacking the pot.
