It was 1993 when Ted Forrest catapulted to poker fame and became known as one of the best all around poker players in the world. Besides winning three World Series of Poker bracelets that year, he made a total of eight final tables in multiple disciplines, making himself a household name in the Poker world. Forrest went on to win over $6 million in live tournaments, collecting two additional bracelets before claiming his sixth and nearly a seventh bracelet this year at the 2014 WSOP, ending a seven-year drought without a tournament victory. Collecting bracelets isn’t Forrest’s only hobby though; some outrageous prop bets have also contributed to his legacy, including the dramatic
weight-loss prop bet with Mike Matusow that reportedly netted him $2 million.
