RG TULSA MAIN EVENT (DAY 2): Ted Forshey Takes The Lead

Level 16 (3,000/6,000/1,000)
Total Entrants: 346
Players Remaining: 31
Chip Average: 215,000

Ted Forshey (pictured) could not have asked for a better start to the new level as he knocked out three players over the course of two hands to claim the chip lead. 

Greg Brown shoved for 45,000 with A♣A from early position and Forshey called with KK♠ on the button. The Q♠10♠9♠ flop gave Forshey a great sweat and after missing on the 3 turn, he hit the K river to eliminate Brown.

The next hand, JW Lovett was all-in for about 130,000 with K♠Q♠ from early position and after Forshey flatted with AA♠ in the cutoff, RunGood's Grant Hinkle moved all-in for a similar amount on the button with QQ and Forshey called right away. 

Forshey was in a great spot to pick up another pot and the A8♣3♠KJ♣ board sent the two players to the rail. Only a few eliminations from the three table redraw, Forsehy is the chip leader with 570,000.
