WSOP Europe: Chris Ferguson Wins His 6th Gold Bracelet

credit: wsop.comOn Wednesday, poker pro and former Full Tilt owner Chris "Jesus" Ferguson won his 6th WSOP bracelet and €39,289 in WSOP Europe Event #7 €1,650 POT-LIMIT OMAHA HI-LO 8 OR BETTER.

The event, which was played at King's Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic attracted a field of 92 players who battled it out over 2 days of play. While big stars such as Phil Hellmuth and John Racener were eliminated just before the money (14 players got to share the entire prize pool), Ferguson reached the 8-handed final table in 5th place.

When the cards were in the air, Poland's Artur Sojka's held a solid chip lead with 1,032,000 while Ferguson only had 179,000/15 big blinds to his name. After 30 minutes of so, Sojka increased his already big chip lead after eliminating Germany's Sebastian Langrock in 8th place. At this point, he had over half of the chips in play and about 4 times as much as Eldert Soer in second place.

Ferguson's winning streak started around this time of the tournament. First he doubled up though Sojka to 300k, then he doubled up again against Rex Clinkscales. Ferguson then eliminated Clinkscales a few minutes later to bring his stack to 900k.

The chip lead changed owner several times over the next two hours of play, but during that time Sojka never returned to the top of the chip counts and was eventually eliminated in 4th place for €11,693 (we can only imagine how disappointed he must be with that result after having almost half of the chip in play at one point).

20 minutes after Sojka hit the rail, Ferguson busted Eldert Soer in third place in the biggest pot of the tournament. "Jesus" enter heads-up play with a commanding 4-1 chip lead and used it very well, given that he got the job done in just 10 minutes! Ukraine's Stanislav Wright got €24,283 for his runner-up finish.

Ferguson, who returned to WSOP last year after lying low since the Full Tilt scandal emerged in 2011, talked to WSOP.com following his 6th gold bracelet victory, "I feel great. It's kind of surreal because I wasn't expecting to win this bracelet at all. I was just trying to sneak in, just trying to advance a little bit. And it just kind of happened. It's the best way."

Fina table results:

1 - Chris Ferguson - €39,289
2 - Stanislav Wright - €24,283
3 - Eldert Soer - €16,607
4 - Artur Sojka - €11,693
5 - Rex Clinksacles - €8,483
6 - Divanshu Kurana - €6,347
7 - Dario Alioto - €4,902
8 - Sebastian Langrock - €3,913

well look what crawled out from under the rock he was hiding under.
Chris Ferguson & Howard Lederer and the others involved in the Fulltilt ripoff scam should have all been permanently band from ever playing in another live poker event world wide.
They did NOT even go to jail and now we see the first of them playing again.
It discusses me personally.

I have not heard of this player for several years but it seems he has not lost his talent. Chris Ferguson played very focused and well and with some luck he managed to win. This is very important to him. Many congratulations on this beautiful place 1 and for the bracelet won. Thumbs Up

Chris Ferguson of course this is a great poker player !!! .... I'm probably only when I found out about this game already at this time his name I also learned ..... great experience and good game brought another victory ..... skill over the years has not worsened and I wish him more victories
 pochui11/3/2017 7:04:35 PM GMT
well nowadays he is a really controversial person, probably with people opinion on him divided in three sections- one's hating him, one's supporting him and one's who never heard of him or don't give a sh1t about him. I sign myself in the last sector.
 Mober11/3/2017 10:07:57 PM GMT
Quite some time isnce i last heard about him winning something. Even playing.
He is a good player, with good results in the past, so that was no surprise.
The game must have been really interesting, since it was omaha hilo.

It's a bit bitter sweet to see Chris Ferguson winning this. I was always a very big fan of his but then the Full Tilt scandal came about and i had to change my whole perspective
 rerere11111/4/2017 5:00:33 PM GMT
How would I learn to play like that?

rerere111 to learn how to play poker pretty well you need initiation. The first time you have to read more strategy schemes, watch videos with poker online or live, learns well what you see or read, practice on virtual chips and freeroll games and after this you make a small deposit and start playing with real money. After a while you will see that you have developed your skills better. Good Luck.

it seems to me that by goodwill and agreement this person could not be a fraudster .... maybe he just did not know about what people do in his environment ..... I want to believe in it and I hope that it is so .. .. Chris really good player and does not need cheating people

Congratulations to Chris Ferguson on winning the 2017 WSOP Europe Event #7! It was April 2003 when Chris won his 5th WSOP bracet. That was almost fifteen years ago. Time passes so quickly...

You are right StheP. Chris Ferguson he used the money of the players with Howard Lederer and Rafe Furst. A bad thing but he had to come back could not give up to his career. The scandal is over, Pokerstars paid the money for players when he bought Full Tilt Poker and is ok. He certainly regretted this.

how fast time flies ... and it was like yesterday ...... it's sad that 16 years have flown by so quickly .... sometimes I'm sorry that the human life is so short and we in our life find a very small period history .... something I was upset writing it ..... I need to distract myself and see some kind of life-affirming film
 pochui11/6/2017 9:07:07 AM GMT
not sure there is a real reason to ban him from playing poker, whether cash games or tournaments, why would you? sure you can hate him or support him for one reason or another but it's a free world, you pay the buy-in - you play the tourney, what's wrong with that? you make the mistake, break the law- you suffer the consequences- legal ones.

I heard nothing about Chris Fergusan for a long time, but that he won his 6th Bracelet at the WSOP wa a good news. Gratz to a "old" guy in the professional poker business. It was a nice time many years ago with the poker boom in the TV and as FT was a big player in the online poker business...
