Event 16: Forrest Chopped As Brown Wins!
Andrew Brown overcame a big chip deficit and manage to defeat five-time bracelet winner Ted Forrest to capture his first bracelet himself at his very first WSOP.
In a topsy-turvy match, Brown managed to take control and put Ted Forrest all-in a couple of times before Forrest made a comeback and briefly recaptured the lead.
Brown, though, redoubled his efforts, and his aggressive style led to a couple of scoops that earned him the first place.
Jim Pechac goes out in third when his Q♥ Q♣ 8♥ 5♦ is up against Brown's J♦ 3♦ 6♠ 4♠. A board of K♥ 4♣ 5♠ 6♦ J♣ leaves neither player with a low, but Brown's jacks and sixes are good for the high, and thus, the total pot.
Quad Me Baby!
The two players see a K♥ 9♥ 9♦ flop heads-up; Brown bets, with Forrest calling. The same pattern occurs on the 6♠ and 9#s river. Brown shows K♦ 9♣ 5♣ 4♣ for quads. With this pot Brown drew virtually level in the chip stakes.
Forrest Reduced to a Thicket
Ted Forrest called a button raise and then led out on the J♦ 8♦ 3♦; Brown called, then bet the 5♠ turn when Forrest checked. The latter opted for a call before check/raising the 2♦ river and being called. Forrest proudly showed his A♠ 4♠ 3♦ T♥ for the wheel, but then Brown declared, "I have three quarters."
Forrest looked shocked: "You have three quarters???"
Brown showed A♣ 2♠ 4♥ 6♦ for the wheel also, but with a six-high straight. The five-time bracelet winner was reduced to less than half a million.
Forrest and Brown see a 9♦ J♦ A♥ flop; Forrest bets and Brown calls. On the 8♣, the same action is repeated. The river is the 2♠. Forrest moves in his last $85,000 and Brown calls again.
Forrest: A♦ 4♦ Q♠ 7♠
Brown: J♥ 2♥ 4♠ 5♦
Brown's jacks and deuces are good for the high, while his A-2-4-5-8 also takes the high and the title!!
