Forrest's Stack Grows

The action folded around to five-time WSOP bracelet winner Ted Forrest (being stalked by the ESPN camera crew) who raised to 11,000 from the hijack position; the opponent in the big blind called, so it was heads-up to the flop of {4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{Q-Clubs}, which both players checked.

The big blind checked again after the dealer peeled off the turn of the {5-Clubs}, which saw Forrest lead out for 13,000. The big blind called, then fired out 25,000 after the river of the {2-Spades}. This was when the ESPN crew stood up and took notice - and the recording lights began to flash as Forrest shipped the rest of his stack into the middle, which was worth another 38,500 to the big blind.

With only about 160,000 behind, the big blind tanked for almost two minutes before laying his hand down, but didn't appear too impressed with having to mock hole-cam his cards. Forrest was only too happy to peek his cards up to the lens and then rake in the pot.
