Ted Forrest Takes Second Annual Poker Tournament Title

March 18, 2006 (written by Haunted Poker)


Last year’s National Heads-Up Poker Championship garnered little attention and publicity finally culminating in the biggest 40-plus-year-old brat the poker world knows – Phil Hellmuth. This year, Ted Forrest captured the title and $500,000 for winning this invitation-only heads-up no-limit hold’em poker tournament. The media coverage seemed to be a bit heavier and the event will probably catch on as it becomes a regular annual event.

Some early-round disappointments included losses from Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and Gus Hansen. You can catch the televised coverage from the newly remodeled Caesar’s Palace poker room in Las Vegas beginning in mid-April on NBC.


Perhaps even more astonishing than Forrest’s victory is the back-to-back 2nd place finishes of Chris “Jesus” Ferguson. This tournament is played in an NCAA basketball-like bracket style and the luck-factor is always enormous in heads-up no-limit play. Congratulations to both Ted and Chris!
