RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 1B): FORSHEY CAUGHT SPEEDING

Level 8 (500/1000/1000)
Total Entrants: 131

Chris Parsley opens for a raise and Ted Forshey (pictured) shoves all-in. The action folds back to Parsley who snap-calls.

Chris Parsley - A♦A♣
Ted Forshey - 8♣7♠

"Watch this," Forshey says, "You won't believe this."

Such chutzpah is rarely seen, and even more rarely rewarded, but the beginnings of a bad beat form when Forshey hits a pair on the T♦8♦2♥ flop. The K♥ on the turn brings no help, but Forshey can still catch a seven or eight on the river to survive.

The river brings the 9♣, which is close but not enough to overcome Parsley's pocket rockets.

"I'll be back tomorrow," Forshey says as he smiles and turns toward the exit.

Chris Parsley - 40,600
