Reputation as a Gambler
Forrest is well known in the pro poker player community as being one of the biggest gamblers around. He is famous for wagering $10,000 against fellow pro John Hennigan that Huck Seed's brother (Leif) could not run from Los Angeles to Las Vegas while only sleeping twice. Other pros have said that Forrest has a "healthy disregard for money" and had even taken a prop bet to run a marathon in Las Vegas on a 115-degree day (he won).
Forrest's biggest tournament financially came in March of 2007 as he won the Bay 101 Shooting Start Tournament and collected the first place prize of $1,125,000 and the WPT crown.
