Ted Forrest, who spent the early part of the day discussing his current health, weight and the $2 million he once took off Mike Matusow in their infamous weight-loss bet a few years ago, is off to a good start.
He's now up close to 40,000 and wasn't giving Noah Schwartz a free look at the river in a recent hand, betting 1,700 into 2,200 on an board. Schwartz folded and a slim and trim looking Forrest fattened his stack a little.
Details on that weight loss bet are that back in early 2010, Forrest weighed close to 190 pounds and made the bet with Matusow he could weigh under 140. He got 20-1 on $50,000 do it by July 15 and another $100,000 at 10-1 that he could do it by September 24.
Forrest apparently starved himself for 10-days before the July 15 weigh in and scaled in at just 138 pounds to win it.
