Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

Phil Hellmuth just posted on twitter:

Ted Forrest (188 pounds) wins $2million from Mike "The mouth" if he weighs 139 pds July 15, or $1M by Sept 24-if not Ted pays Mikey $150,000

Source

Mike honestly has $2Million to lose?!?!?

[x] Mike is broke
[x] Mike doesn't have that money
[x] Publicity stunt

2M seems like an awfully cheap price to become a double amputee

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

Sept 24 goal is doable. 15 July during WSOP sounds tough.

still where does Mikey get $1m from?

prediction: Mike will buy out in August.

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

No way could forrest get down to that weight unless he completely starved himself. He probably weighed more then that when he was 12.

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

I have a sizeable piece of this...it's July 15'th and September 15'th, and I was there at weigh-in at the Commerce gym scale...Ted is about 188 lbs with jeans, sneakers, and a shirt on, and extremely muscular at the moment

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

with all the meth and coke ted will do during wsop, he just might get in the zone and ship 5 bracelets.

even if hes not close right before, he can go in sauna and drop 15-20lbs in a day

If he is really muscular then I reckon the task will be a lot harder and there is value in the bet...

Fat easy to burn....muscle not so much. He'll have to starve himself.

The muscle means he could have easily inflated his initial weight by a lot before the initial weigh in. Muscles absorb a lot of water, he could drop quite a bit of weight within hours of the bet.

Where does Ted get $2Million to lose???

Ted could easily do this on Life of Ivey he was trying to bet Ivey to running and all this kind of stuff. Ivey said you must like the bet or you wouldn't make it. Ted's excuse was well I want to bet big because I want to get in shape.

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

I think he can get down to 150 fairly easy but those last 10-15 are going to be hell.

Re: Prop Bet Ted Forrest and Mike Matusow

jesus christ, what a easy bet. Ted forrest is probably not gonna make it to June, but loosing 40 pounds in 4 months (september) is no problem, even if he is muscular. I mean basically, it just requires, eating a lot of salad, vegetables and little protein. And then doing a lot of cardio. = free 1m $
