Forrest Goes Deep in $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low EventPublished on June 15th, 2014 5:53 am EST
Those who took Ted Forrest in their World Series of Poker fantasy drafts have to be ecstatic as "Professor Backwards" has gone deep in another event.
Forrest, who currently owns six World Series of Poker bracelets, took down the $1,500 Seven Card RAZZ event last week for $121,196. With his deep run in Event #30 ($1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low), Forrest has the opportunity to become the first multiple bracelet winner of this year's World Series of Poker. Forrest has won multiple bracelets in a single year twice before - once in 1993, when he took down three WSOP events, and once in 2004, when he took down the $1,500 Seven Card Stud and $1,500 No Limit Hold'em events.
Forrest suffered a blow to his chip stack late on Day 2 of the $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low event and now has a slightly below-average stack heading into Day 3 on Sunday. There are currently 11 other players standing between Forrest and his seventh World Series of Poker bracelet, including Jimmy Fricke, Joe Tehan and Melissa Burr.
Ted Forrest is under-rated by the majority of the casual poker fan population, but those who regularly play with Forrest know just how good he is, and he is proving that once again at this year's World Series of Poker.
