Day 3 Completed
Brown played a pretty steady game for the first two days, but really turned it on today when it mattered. When he finally got heads up with Ted Forrest, he showed that he is more than capable of hanging with the top pros. For the first 30 minutes, Brown put on a clinic, and ran Forrest all the way down to 150,000. That was the easy part.
Forrest battled all the way back to regain the chip lead with 1.235 million a short time after. Showing the poise of a pro in his own right though, Brown continued pushing hard, and finally was able to wear Forrest all the way down to the felt. Truly a remarkable performance from our new bracelet winner.
Congratulations to Andrew Brown, Event #16 Champion!
