2017 WSOP Player of the Year goes to Chris Ferguson

Tags: Chris Ferguson, WSOP player of the year
Posted on Monday, November 13, 2017 by "T".
At this year's WSOP Europe, the WSOP Player of the Year award has officially been awarded to six-time WSOP champion and former Full Tilt co-owner, Chris ‘Jesus' Ferguson. Before the start of the WSOPE Main Event on November 7, there were only two players remaining with a chance of surpassing Ferguson, and they were John Racener and Ryan Hughes.

This really is a bittersweet moment seeing Chris Ferguson winning this prize. I was always a big fan of Chris, but then the Full Tilt revelations started coming out and that view changed drastically

well this is really a major spit on the faces of all the haters of jesus out there, winning wsop player of the year is quite an achievement, 17 cashes along the way and one bracelet on top of this really is a strong showing at the tables.

Fergusan was a verry good poker player, but after the things with FT some years ago, it was perhaps not the best idea to give him this award. I think the character of a player must also be good for this award. But off course, his poker career are respectabel.

What can you learn from all this? Don't trust eccentric figures. They maybe scammers, pedosexuals or just asking for negative attention with their weird looks. There is nothing wrong with dressing alternative, but when you are NOT a real cowboy and look like a cowboy, that is just weird, maybe then your alarm bells must start ringing. People can not be trusted in general, but just watch out for people who come from a certain background where you know most of them are scammers, because you got enough examples in life, so always be wary. Most people are really naive and can't relate to my advise, well, gl in life!

I do not know about the poker results of Chris Ferguson in 2017 but i know he won 39.289 euro
to a wsop europe tournament and a bracelet with 1650 euro buy-in - Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. I do not think it deserves to be the winner of WSOP Player of the Year award.

Chris Ferguson is certainly an excellent poker player .... and I think he deserved this title .... this year he plays very well and so it seems to me that everything is fair ... of course besides the results here is also the fact that Chris Ferguson Honored veteran of poker ... my congratulations

Congratulations to Chris Ferguson on winning the 2017 WSOP Player of the Year award! According to the Wikipedia article below, Chris cashed 23 times, final tabled 3 times, and earned US$428,423 in this year's WSOP event. Seriously? 23 times? That must be a record.

Yes this is very good tournament series from chris Ferguson, un wsop europe he was un the money for 17 times, wow this is so good. O dont know how many tournaments he play, but I think he is in the money more than in half of played, so this is really hard to do with so many professional players.

I read something on the internet about Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier or anothers players who are upset by the fact that Chris Ferguson has managed to win the title of 2017 WSOP Player of the Year and i say they are right. Chris had no notable results this year and does not deserve this title.

well really, does this change anything, so what dude won the title big deal. this doesn't change anything, he will have a ton of haters who will hate him anyway and a lot less of those who support him and will continue to do so in the future no matter what. end of story. he won- good for him I guess.

I like his hat and generally his the appearance of a cowboy ....of course you need to live not by past times but by what happens at the moment ... and at the moment this great player became a player of the year .... and I think he absolutely deserved this title ....and then what was it then passed and it is necessary to live further
