Chris Ferguson Issues Short Apology to the Poker Community

Tags: Black Friday, Chris Ferguson
Posted on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 by "T".
Seven years after the Black Friday, an event that shook the poker world with poker's big three (Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, and Ultimate Bet) getting indicted, Chris Ferguson finally re-emerged issuing an apology for his role in it. Despite re-emerging twice at the World Series of Poker as well as winning Player of the Year last year, the former founder of Full Tilt has never really spoken publi[...]   Read more » Chris Ferguson Issues Short Apology to the Poker Community

So it took him only seven years to issue a short statement on the topic. And in this statement he basicly says nothing new or intersting, but only a bunch of soundbites. He should switch from poker to politics

I dont see the reason, why making the statement in the first place,
after so long.
If he had something to say, he should have said it many years ago.
Now it is too late for everyone.
Fans? He still have fans?

Excuses do not help two much. The Black Friday broke the Full Tilt Poker and American players have left the online industry of these games. Poker was very good at that time and his fall destroyed the dream of many players including mine. I loved Full Tilt Poker as it was before Black Friday. Very sad. Sad

and what I forgot to say... in this video he is uppologising for not preventing black friday... I dont know what that have to do with him, and how he could prevent it... he should be appologising for bad menagment of money and overspending money.... other people's money... that he shouldnt even touch in first place... simple as that...

what to talk about a man who alone could end up with the poker of a whole country with shenanigans and more shenanigans this citizen nor should reach the 100 meters of a table of poker should be banished forever in my opinion and of course

indeed. his statement is nothing worth without further explanation. is there still an investigation going on or why doesnt he express his views on the subject?

Well it depends on what you name black friday... IMO black friday was day when online poker was banned in usa... he didnt couse banning poker in usa... he just didnt have money to pay players out after they banned poker...

Quite funny to apologize so long after the fact. Some take time to realize the errors, but 7 years seems like a lot to me. Besides, he did not say anything at all, he would have stayed quiet. As someone said, that is dedicated to politics.
Or maybe it is some previous movement for a project that has a future, and wants to win the masses.

nobady knew if they were abusing players money or not until they had to pay out all players, so I dont think so... they would continue spending players money until well run dry...

This years WSOP is about to start. Maybe he plans to get involved in this tourney series far more than in the last few years since black friday. And this message was just launched to test the waters.

Shokaku you think Chris Ferguson want to make a Live Black Friday Cool participating in these tournaments? because he is the player of 2017 if i understand that well. He can participate now. There are no restrictions for him. Maybe he wants to make more advertising.

Of cause he can participate. It is just the question how the other players will react if he is on their table. I guess no one likes it to get nagged for 8-10 hours in a row throughout the hole tournament.

Players will react normally because he played in 2017 and no one revolted as Chris F. to be excluded.

Chris Ferguson may have been directly and knowingly participated in a pyramid scheme. Does the degree of his involvement in the fraud make any difference to the negatively affected poker players around the globe?

This so called apology is a long time in the making and i don't think that it will be of any comfort to the players' who lost money. I think that all the people involved in this outrage should be ashamed of themselves

one of the biggest thieves in poker worldwide should be banned from anything related to poker because he managed to ban almost forever poker in one of the places where poker was born and a malcarater and thief
