Big Pot Gives Forrest the Chip Lead

Chad_Holloway • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Hellmuth loses the chip lead for first time in heads-up play.

Phil Hellmuth brought it in with a {2-} and then raised when Ted Forrest completed with an {A-}. Forrest pushed back with a reraise, Hellmuth called and it was off to fourth street. Hellmuth caught a {9-} and bet after Forrest received a {J-}. Forrest called and then bet himself when he took the lead on fifth. Hellmuth called and then called bets on both sixth and seventh.

Hellmuth: (x-x) / {2-}{9-}{q-}{3-} / {x-}
Forrest: {a-}{j-}{8-}{4-} / {5-}{3-}{9-}

Forrest tabled an 8-5-4-3-A low and it was good as Hellmuth mucked. With that pot Forrest has clawed his way into the chip lead for the first time.
