Hand #143: Stephen Chidwick limped in with {J-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Keith Tilston checked his {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}, setting a trap. The {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{J-Hearts} flop was exactly what could Tilston hope for, allowing Chidwick flop top pair. Chidwick, however, checked back and they continued to the {5-Spades} turn. Tilston fired 200,000 and Chidwick called. The {4-Hearts} river didn't scare Tilston who bet another 400,000. Chidwick called to see the bad news. "Nice bet," he complimented Tilston.

Hand #144: Tilston peeled {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and limped in. Chidwick checked with {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and the {6-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} hit the felt. Tilston bet 100,000 in position and Chidwick floated to see the {6-Hearts} turn where Tilston barreled for 300,000. Chidwick check-folded.

Hand #145: Tilston received a walk.

Hand #146: Tilston limped again, that time with {7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Chidwick tapped with {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and they looked at the {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop. Chidwick checked and called Tilston's 150,000-bet. The {K-Diamonds} turn was checked by both players and the {8-Spades} landed on the river. Chidwick checked for the third time and Tilston gave up, checking his seven-high.

Hand #147: Chidwick limped in with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Tilston checked {Q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} to outflop his opponent on the {J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. Tilston led out 200,000 with his top pair and Chidwick called. The {7-Spades} turn card gave Tilston two pair and he overshoved for 1.14 million effective.

Chidwick threw in few chips, calling. He found himself in a disastrous shape, drawing just for six cards in the deck. Tilston was close to finishing him off but the dealer was against it. The {9-Diamonds} river rescued Chidwick who remained in his seat, suddenly stacking up a huge double up that catapulted him to the chip lead.
