An open raise by Stephen Chidwick for 1,200,000 was called by James Chen and they headed to the flop. Once Chen had checked his option, Chidwick made it 900,000 to go and the call of Chen followed. This brought them to the turn and Chen checked over to Chidwick, who fired a second barrel of 3,000,000.
The call of Chen delivered the biggest pot of the heads-up duel so far and the came on the river with Chen checking the third street in a row. Chidwick emptied the clip with a bet of 10,100,000 and Chen gave it some consideration before paying it off.
Chidwick rolled over for top set and that left Chen with a mountain to climb, as Chidwick rocketed into a 10-1 lead.
"I called pretty light," Chen said in table chat to Chidwick.
