For a time, he was one of the most successful high limit cash game players of the last decade. He was once referred to as a "poker savant" by Phil Laak and is rated as one of the best poker players in the world by Phil Hellmuth and Doyle Brunson. In the thirteenth episode of the third season of High Stakes Poker, Booth stated that he has been playing poker every day for fourteen years – first in Vancouver, then Calgary and then in the Yukon, hence his nickname "Yukon Brad" – but is now slowing down. According to an interview on Mediocre Poker Radio, Booth was a victim of the Ultimate Bet cheating scandal, and may have been cheated out of $2 million. He continued to play poker online after being cheated, but without his former success. Since 2008, he has lost $4.2 million playing poker.
