Ted Forrest had a rough start to the day, but it seems his fortunes have turned for the better. Just before the dinner break, we caught up to Forrest when he was involved in a hand on a flop. Action had checked to Forrest, and he bet 5,000. Action folded back to the player in the small blind and he check-raised to 13,550.
Forrest thought long and hard before grabbing his entire stack, which was 25,600 more, and pushed it in the pot. The small blind quickly called and the cards were turned up.
Both players had flopped a pair of jacks, but the ace kicker of Forrest was superior. Neither the turn nor the river changed a thing, and Forrest double to 83,000!
