Chidwick Doubles, Cunningham Nearly Felted


We picked up the action on fourth street in a heads-up pot between Allen Cunningham and Stephen Chidwick, two of the short stacks.

Cunningham: (x-x) / {K-Spades} {Q-Spades} {8-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} / (x)
Chidwick: (x-x) / {J-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {8-Hearts} / (x)

Chidwick called a bet on fourth, then raised on fifth. Cunningham reraised, and Chidwick committed the rest of his chips, rolling over {J-Clubs} {4-Spades} for two pair. Cunningham showed down {A-Clubs} {3-Spades}, and his flush draw had Chidwick sweating.

Cunningham's queen on sixth gave him some more outs to the win, but his seventh street {10-Diamonds} was a blank. Chidwick went ahead and filled up for good measure with the {4-Clubs}, and he's doubled his way back into this match.

Cunningham has just 40,000 chips left.
