As a wild guess, I'd say they get poker earnings from... poker.

If Ted Forrest made 12.1 million in a year of poker it would seem cash games are 95% of their income, not tournaments or endorsements.

OK, where are the pro's playing poker at? Obviously in Vegas and other parts of the US and the world, but who is giving them the action to make so much money? It seems to me their competition isn't always that tough. Are there not many times when a "whale" is in town and wants to play poker vs. the pro's?
