Mojgan Stringham exited in 20th place, leaving Barbara Lewis the last female player left in the field. Stringham was eliminated by Ted Forrest who now has the chip lead. Here's how Stringham's last hand unfolded:

Forrest completed with the {4-Spades} and Stringham raised it up with the {8-Hearts} face up. Forrest called, and called another bet on fourth. He led out on fifth and Stringham moved all-in for 8,000 more. Forrest called and their hole cards were turned up.

Mojgan Stringham: {2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} / {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Ted Forrest {8-Spades}{2-Spades} / {4-Spades}{Q-Spades}{A-Diamonds}

Stringham had eights and Forrest had a flush draw. Both players also had four low cards. Forrest hit the {A-Clubs} on sixth while Stringham bricked with the {9-Spades}. Forrest improved to aces up on seventh, showing the {4-Hearts}.

Stringham could win the whole pot with one specific card, the remaining eight. Her hopes for a chop were higher as she needed any ace, three, four or six. However, none of that arrived as she turned over the {K-Spades}. That was the last card she saw in the tournament as she conceded her chips to Forrest.
