Pescatori Takes The Lead
Stephen Chidwick is the bring-in showing . Max Pescatori completes showing the and Chidwick makes it two bets. Pescatori then makes it three bets and Chidwick just calls.
Pescatori - (X)(X) / / (X)
Chidwick - (X)(X) / / (X)
On fourth street Pescatori check-calls one bet from Chidwick, and the same action occurs on fifth. On sixth street, Pescatori leads out for one bet and Chidwick calls.
On seventh street, Pescatori counts his stack before electing to check, and Chidwick thinks about the hand before electing to make one bet. Pescatori calls and Chidwick declares "sevens and an eight-seven low", to Pescatori's surprise as he says "I scoop!" and tables for a pair of aces and an eight-six low. Chidwick grins wryly and mucks his hand.
Max Pescatori - 2,100,000
Stephen Chidwick - 1,230,000
