Hand #156: Keith Tilston was left with under six big blinds and he put them in the middle. Stephen Chidwick had no problem to call with ace-high.

Tilston: {K-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Chidwick: {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Tilston had two live cards but he didn't get a piece of the {6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} board. Chidwick, who was himself one card away from busting a few moments ago, eliminated Tilston in second place for a $242,000 reward. "You played really well," Chidwick told Tilston when they shook hands.

Chidwick, who already finished fifth in the opening $10k event, took home $374,000. He climbed to the top of the leaderboard with $428,400 in US Poker Open earnings. He's expected to join the $25k Mixed Event later tonight.
