Parrott Hangs on to Place 3rd in the Main Event

Parrott ends up all-in four hands in a row against Bendiks and wins all of them. His first hand he has pocket fours vs. Bendiks who has Ace three. Another hand Bendiks can’t call as he says he can’t justify calling a 360K all-in vs. the total pot size he could win. Parrott holds on strong and wins another pre-flop all-in against Bendiks, Kings vs. Jacks. He says he could not have done it without his lucky dealer Krishen in the box. Winning these pots allows him to outlast Frank and Kuey, placing 3rd for $13,581.
