Stephen Chidwick Ships Poker Masters Event 8 For $400,000

Stephen Chidwick’s Event #8 final table performance is not only likely to be the most dominant of the Poker Masters 2023, but it could go down as one of the most dominant in PGT history. The pro from England, has shipped this event for a sum of $400,000. Emerging victorius from a player field of 50, Chidwick once again proved his mettle in this skill game.

Chidwick had an overwhelming chip lead to begin the six-handed streamed final table with nearly 60% of the chips in play. He went to work immediately, opening nearly every hand, and eliminated short-stacked Chino Rheem in sixth place. 

Darren Elias fell next, also at the hands of Chidwick. Chris Brewer exited a little while later, although it was Alex Foxen and not Chidwick taking out the short-stacked Brewer. Foxen then ran ace-king suited into Chidwick’s pocket aces.
