James Chen chipped up without showdown and then saw Stephen Chidwick limp in to the flop. Chen checked and a bet of 800,000 by Chidwick won the pot.
In the next hand, Chen raised the pot to 1,200,000 on the button and Chidwick called. The flop brought and a check by Chidwick saw Chen fire a continuation bet of 1,500,000. That ended the hand right there as Chen pulled some further chips back.
The next limped pot resulted in a flop and Chen check-raised from 800,000 to 2,400,000. Chidwick folded and Chen reduced the gap once more.
