Todd was young when he started his professional career. At the age of 21, he won his first tournament; his winnings were an astonishing $200,000 for the Diamond Jim Brady tournament in Los Angeles. This was the first of a total of twelve tournament wins throughout his career.

In 2005, Todd won a bracelet at the World Series of Poker for the Omaha High Low. That same year, Doyle also won a bracelet and this made them the first father and son combo to win a bracelet in the same year and overall. Todd also contributed to Doyle’s book Super System 2, where he wrote about the Seven Card Stud High Low Eight or Better section.

In 2006, Todd participated in the Poker Superstars 3 Grand Final, where he won $400,000 for first place against Antonio Esfandiari.

Todd is currently appearing on the GSN TV series High Stakes Poker. His total live tournament winnings are estimated at about $3,000,000.
