Mike SextonThere 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.

I really think that Chris Ferguson should come out and tell his side of the story. There are lots of players who would like to know what really happened on Black Friday. I hope he tells us

But what story do you guys want to hear? " I had a irresponsible lifestyle with coke, cars and b1tches?


"I tried to fraud but it didn't work out, you guys shouldn't found out about it?"


"due to my gabbling nature I took too much risks and I did it all wrong"

maybe this doesn't come from his mouth because he got a wicked sense of proud. Afraid of admitting a mistake.

That's why he has this cowboy hat, to look cool (which is actually a redneck fedora).

We had the owner story telling us that after a while he did not care to much about the running of the company and he left it in other peoples hand which was a big mistake. This was his story. Now Ferguson was probably one of those that was suppose to operate the company so what kind of story could he give.

Maybe the same has the other one i made a very big mistake of letting other peoples taking care of the company while i was playing poker and loosing FT money. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

Although there are some occasions in life when it is better to remain silent, that Chris Ferguson issuing no apologies, manifesting no remorse, and behaving as if nothing happened might be felt like a huge slap in the face to poker players. Jesus, Ferguson!

I say FAK`EM, the only reason why FT looks like jokestars with ft skin is coz of those mofo`s, they had the chance to show the favric they were made from, and it turn out to be chicken skin filled with B.S. every poker player was screaming and looking for answers when that shyte happened, and where were these guys, no where to be found, they took the money and split, and now they want back, ARE U SERIOUS, u know the saying right... Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me...
So i say fak`em, if it was up to me i would ban this fakers to touch a deck of cards let alone play with it, they had their chance to do the right thing instead they hit and ran, i can figure out these guys out like mike saxtone and negreanu, for giving them a chance to this Aholes and useing their platform to speak to the people in the poker world, after remembering just how pissed was negreanu at this guys when all the BS took place...

Oh i had not heard about Chris Fergusan for a Long time, i know he was involved in the Full Tilt scandal. But i´m sure, that he knows not all details in the past about that. But perhaps we can hear his version about the story.
