There were mixed emotions when Chris Ferguson showed up last week at the World Series of Poker. Many of the players were not happy to see him returning. Nevertheless, there were some who urged him to come clean and tell his side over what happened at Full Tilt Poker.
Ferguson has been absent from WSOP since 2010. He however showed up for this year's game, which quickly gained a variety of reactions both on twitter and poker forums. Most of the reactions were frustration over Ferguson's presence.
In the poker world, many believe that Ferguson owes them an apology. Sexton believes that keeping quiet is not doing Ferguson any favor.
"I think Chris should tell the story to be honest," said Sexton.
"I think if he told that side of the story, how much he fought for players and how much he tried to get players' money back and how much he tried to keep the company going even after it was going belly-up, I think they would have a different viewpoint.
"I see both sides of the coin. A lot of old players are fond of Chris and like him as a person but for what he did, it's difficult for a lot of guys to swallow. Should they let him come back and play? It's okay with me, but I can see where people would object to it.
"Knowing Chris like I do, I know he was the one guy who never wanted to pay the shareholders," Sexton Added.
Sexton believes that if Ferguson told his side of the story, how much he fought for players and how he tried to get them their money back while trying to keep the company going, it is likely that there would have been a different viewpoint.
