Forrest vs. Matusow the $2 mil weight bet

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 19, 2010 Posted in Poker Player News | No Comments »

Chalk up another inexplicable prop bet win for Ted Forrest, as the Full Tilt Poker blog reports Forrest won his prop bet with Mike Matusow where Matusow claimed Forrest could not lose 50lbs by by July 14th –the bet began in May. For anyone that doesn’t know, Forrest is far from overweight, and only weighed 188 lbs at the time of the bet.

Well, Forrest brought his scale –actually Huck Seed’s scale– and what was left of his body to the Commerce Casino, and sure enough he weighed in at 138 lbs, which was enough to part Mike Matusow from $2 million of his money!

Huck Seed was on hand –how could he miss out on the conclusion of a prop bet!!!—and was one of the first to congratulate Forrest.

Matusow was not only wrong in his assessment of Forrest’s weight loss abilities, but actually thought the weight-loss would likely kill Forrest should he get down to the chosen weight! Fortunately for all of us Forrest lived through the ordeal and will be around for a number of other crazy prop bets!

For a little background on Forrest and Seed’s shenanigans do a quick Google search on the two and you’ll come across such oddities as running marathons in Vegas, standing in the ocean for hours, grooming habits, back-flips and bench-pressing. I wouldn’t take Odds on them getting upto something again soon.
