Ted Forrest Defeats Hellmuth To Claim $1,500 Razz Title

Ted Forrest Defeats Hellmuth To Claim $1,500 Razz TitleTed Forrest has captured his sixth career WSOP bracelet after overcoming a field of 352 players over three days, including Phil Hellmuth heads-up, to claim the title and the $121,196 first-place prize.
Despite now boosting his live tournament earnings to $6,193,584, Forrest was keen to emphasize it was winning the bracelet that was all important to him, stating: “This wasn’t really about money for myself, or for Phil. I mean, the bracelet means more than any of the money [I’ve won], for myself and for Phil.”
Immediately after narrowly missing out on a 14th career WSOP title, Hellmuth took to his twitter page to congratulate Ted Forrest on his impressive victory, saying: “Congrats to my old friend Ted Forrest on winning #WSOPRazz tourn. If I had to lose to someone, I’m glad it was Teddy….2nd place for me.”
The $1,500 Razz event attracted a top flite field of players to create a prize pool worth $457,200. Amongst the notable names cashing in at the event was Phil Laak in 40th ($2,575), and Huck Seed in 12th ($6,852). At the final table of eight, Kevin Iacofano subsequently finished in 8th for $11,143, Yuebin Guo in 7th ($14,517), and Brandon Cantu in 6th ($19,183), before Ted Forrest eliminated Brock Parker in 5th for $25,717.
Phil Hellmuth then did likewise to David Bach in 4th ($34,979), and Greg Pappas in 3rd ($48,275) to take a 2-to-1 chip-lead over Forrest into the heads-up phase of the competition. After a swingy drawn out final battle, however, Forrest consigned Hellmuth to a runner-up finish worth $74,848, after which Forrest commented:
“Of all the tournament’s I’ve played, this one was the toughest when we gone down to heads-up. I’ve never gone back and forth this many times against anyone. Phil is a great player obviously, and to win in this way really makes it even more satisfying. I don’t know what I can say other than this is what we play for, for this moment.”
