Ted Forrest

Ted Forrest was fighting bravely with his short stack, but he couldn't fully recover to get back to contention. He lost his tournament life in a contest against a man on the other side of the leader board, Hal Rotholz.

Forrest completed, and Rotholz made it two bets. Forrest called, and fourth street was checked through. Rotholz bet on fifth, and Forrest called off for his remaining 55,000.

Ted Forrest: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} / {8-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Hal Rotholz: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} / {2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Forrest had queens in the hole, but Rotholz showed an even higher pair. The {9-Spades} turn and {4-Hearts} river didn't connect with Forrest's hand, and he left the tournament in eighth place with $15,245.
