Stephen ‘stevie444’ Chidwick

Chidwick is an exceptionally talented tournament player that occasionally dabbles in the odd high-stakes mixed game.

Appropriately hailing from a small English town called Deal, Chidwick is an exceptionally talented tournament player that occasionally dabbles in the odd high-stakes mixed game. Behind only Sam Trickett in England’s all-time money list, he has amassed more than $9,000,000 in live tournament earnings alone since 2008.

Chidwick embodies the poker dream, for he built up his bankroll from nothing by playing online freerolls at the young age of 16. Playing predominantly at PokerStars under the screenname ‘stevie444’, Chidwick began grinding seriously in 2007 with beginnings in the Sit and Go format. Later transitioning to MTTs, he steadily grew his bankroll over the next decade, with almost $5,000,000 in online tournament winnings today. With SCOOP and WCOOP titles under his belt including a victory in a Fixed Limit Triple Draw 2-7 event, Chidwick’s poker ability extends beyond No Limit Hold’em.

In the live tournament circuit, Chidwick has had an extremely fast rise to the top. He won his first ever recorded tournament cash on The Hendon Mob, taking down the 2008 PCA $1,000 No Limit Hold’em event for $88,760. He has four EPT titles to his name in a variety of formats including an 8-Game event and a Turbo 6-Handed No Limit Hold’em tournament. Since the EPT rebranded to the ‘PokerStars Championship’, he has been one of the most successful players in this circuit with two big wins in 2017 alone. Chidwick took down the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em event in Panama for $366,500 and outlasted tournament prodigies Mustapha Kanit and Dario Sammartino in the process. Later in the year at the 2017 stop in Barcelona, he won the €25,000 No Limit Hold’em 8-Handed event for $813,144 in his biggest tournament win to date. Funnily enough, three of Stephen’s four biggest live tournament cashes have come in events where he didn’t claim the title. In the 2013 EPT Main Event in Prague, he finished third for $517,992. The following year at the same series, he again finished in third place at the €50,000 Super High Roller event for $436,236 behind fellow Englishman Paul Newey.

Chidwick also enjoys teaching the game of poker and is a coach at the prestigious training site Run It Once.
