Chidwick Takes Another Tumble

• Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Bertrand Grospellier limped in from the small blind and Stephen Chidwick opted to see the flop for free. The flop fell {7-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Grospellier led out with a min-bet of 50,000. Chidwick called and the {5-Diamonds} landed on the turn.

Grospellier fired out another bet of 150,000 and Chidwick raised to 500,000. Grospellier called and the {10-Spades} completed the board. Grospellier checked this time and Chidwick quickly checked it back. Grospellier turned over {6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for trip threes and that was enough to scoop the pot.

O'Dwyer Doubles Through Chidwick

will_shill • Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Bertrand Grospellier raised to 100,000 from the button and Stephen Chidwick three-bet to 350,000 in the small blind. Steve O'Dwyer four-bet all in for 900,000.

Grospellier folded and Chidwick called.

Stephen Chidwick: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Steve O'Dwyer: {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The hand was essentially over on the flop with the {7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts} giving O'Dwyer a full house. The turn {q-Hearts} had Chidwick drawing dead and all that was left was for the {7-Hearts} to put the gloss on the double as O'Dwyer rivered quads and doubled back into contention.

Grospellier Gets Two Streets of Value

• Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Steve O'Dwyer raised it up to 100,000 in the cutoff and Bertrand Grospellier called from the big blind. The flop came {7-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {k-Spades} on the turn.

Grospellier led out with a bet of 150,000 and O'Dwyer called to see the {k-Clubs} on the river. Grospellier counted out another bet of 275,000 and O'Dwyer dipped into the tank for a minute before making the call. Grospellier tabled {8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for two pair and O'Dwyer was unable to beat it.

Jean-Noel Thorel opened to 150,000 and called a shove from Steve O'Dwyer for his last 650,000. Thorel only just covered his opponent and held {j-Spades}{k-Spades}, but was behind to the {k-Clubs}{q-Spades} of O'Dwyer.

Bertrand Grospellier: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Jean-Noel Thorel: {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
