Ted Forrest won three bracelets at the World Series of Poker 1993. Thereafter, he focused for a long time completely to cash games. In 2004 he returned to the WSOP and celebrated with two more bracelets a great success. Since then, the Seven Card Stud specialist has increasingly focused on Hold'em and made some excellent rankings in the WPT and PPT.
In March 2006, Forrest won the National Heads-Up Poker Championship. He beat on his way to the title: Erik Seidel, Chad Brown, Ernie Dureck, Sam Farha, Shahram Sheikhan, Chris Ferguson and won the grand prize of half a million U.S. dollars.
In March 2007, Forrest won a tournament on the World Poker Tour in San Jose and a cash prize in the amount of 1.1 million U.S. dollars.
Forrest usually plays at the highest available limits in poker. He was an important part of a group of players who put their money together to play heads-up against the billionaire Andrew Beal. The match took place at the Bellagio and had limits of $ 50,000 and $ 100,000.
He reached the second round for the second season of Poker Superstars. In High Stakes Poker, he was seen in the first two seasons.
To date, he has won over $ 6.0 million in poker tournaments.
