Watch Ted Forrest Play Poker Tonight

92You can catch 2006 NBC Heads-Up Poker Champion Ted Forrest in action tonight as the World Poker Tour kicks off its fourth season with the Mirage Poker Showdown. Held this past May, this WPT televised final table showcases Forrest battling it out with Thang "Kido" Pham, Canuck Gavin Smith, Raleigh's Christopher Bell, Texan Mark Ellerbe and New Yorker Gene Todd. 317 players entered this event and more than $3,000,000 was on the line, with a $1,128,278 payday to first.

By the way, congrats to the WPT for entering its quad year. Impressive. If you asked me a few years ago what's the likelihood they'd enter a 4th season, I would have told you it's about as likely as NASCAR becoming a mainstream sport or, better yet, about as likely as some no-name amateur with the impossible moniker of Moneymaker winning the World Series of Poker, only to end up as some "celebrity" hawking videogames and books and headlining NASCAR-themed charity poker tournaments.

Speaking of this so-called NASCAR sport, if you haven't checked out the trailer for Will Ferrell's upcoming movie "Talledega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby" get to it now.

And if you want to get warmed up for tonight's WPT, get, uh, warmed up with video of WPT hostess Courtney Friel frollicking on top of a poker table. She's pretty hot, even when she's talking.

I read or heard somewhere, can't remember (see guys I'm people who know people) that the entire pitch for the Ferrell Nascar movie was..."Will Ferrell as a Nascar Driver". True story.
