It came up on the 2012 World Series of Poker media conference call and has been a topic of conversation since Russ Hamilton and UB super-used $20M+ from its customers: should past Main Event champs who have (allegedly) disgraced the game still have their banners hung in the WSOP tournament area?
There’s been an on-going shuffling of Hamilton’s banner over the years. And while Amarillo Slim (rest in peace) never got the cover-up, some have argued he should have as well.
This year, after the Full Tilt debacle, “some” are arguing that Chris “Jesus” Ferguson‘s mug should be tucked away.
So we’ll put it up for a poll. Whose banner should be removed? Should anyone’s? Have at it.
Editor’s Note: Our take is that all banners should stay up unless the offender did something specific to the WSOP itself.
