Stephen Chidwick just picked up over a half million chips without having to see a flop.
Mike McDonald started the action with raise to 27,000 from the cutoff. Chidwick raised the small blind to 95,000 and Ole Schemion came in with a four-bet from the big blind, making it 212,000.
McDonald started down Schemion for a full two minutes before firing in a fifth-bet, making it 350,000, but it was Chidwick he should have been concerned with, as he promptly six-bet shoved for 855,000 total.
Schemion quickly folded, and after less than a minute McDonald relented with a smile, allowing Chidwick to move up among the leaders without showdown.
