ted has to feel sorry for himself for only being forrest but not turner therefore resulting in a situation where he has to write fraudulent checks left and right and in between. hopefully one day forrest will grow top such heights that fraudulent checks will come only from the left, resulting in complete elimination of fraudulent checks from the right and in between.

When you see that the guy had won six bracelets and 6.3 million in WSOP tournaments you probably think that the guy is a very rich man.
However you don't know anything about him and he is maybe loosing all is money playing cash games or any other casino games and become a poor guy who have to write check for which he knows that he does not have the funds to cover them.
It is very strange how we cam judge a person with only a bit of information on him.

As they say, easy come easy go! Winning $6 million means nothing if you can't hang on to it. It would appear there is a situation here for which we only have part of the story, but nonetheless it appears very sad that such a profit maker is embroiled in a theft / bad check issue. Remember...look after your money and only bet what you can afford to lose.

It reminded me the "run forrest run" from the movie. This is a bright example to what happens with some "lucky" poker players after some time. Not all of them are successful at the end. For some the wheel turns and as they are addicted to it, it can result to this.

Ted Forrest won the 2006 NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, winning the $500,000 first prize. That was a great tournament. It is hard to believe that ten years have passed since then. More than $6.3 million in live tournament earnings. That sounds like a lot of money. He has earned around $200,000 (before tax) a year on average for the past 30 years or so.
