Chris "Jesus" Ferguson captured his second WSOP Circuit Main Event of the year this weekend.
The field was relatively small (107) at Harrah’s Las Vegas WSOP circuit championship event, but the competition still included some big guns. Ferguson outlasted a field that included Andy Bloch, Max Pescatori, John Phan, Russ Hamilton, An Tran, and the "colorful" (read: drunk)
Ferguson faced Chad Layne heads-up for the title. On the final hand, Layne got his money in the middle with the best of it, as it was his A-K vs. Jesus’ A-J. A Jack hit on the flop though, Layne failed to improve his hand, and Jesus triumphs again.
Ferguson banked over $362k for the win. With his $655k+ victory in March at the Rincon Main Event in San Diego, Jesus has won over a mil this year at WSOP circuit events alone. Praise Jesus!
Seriously. Praise him now.
