Subject:Poker dropped a thorough investigative piece on Wednesday detailing Chris Ferguson‘s [not so] secret [anymore] bank accounts with Full Tilt Poker/Pocket Kings.
Give it a read here, but the gist is Ferguson moved a lot of money between accounts, loaned Tilt a bundle of cash post-Black Friday, bought shares from many a shareholder, and is potentially keeping the skids on the Groupe Bernard Tapie deal from going through.
Player reaction to the story via Twitter was expectedly harsh. Some notable remarks:
Given recent reports detailing Chris Ferguson‘s transgressions at FTP I assume
@WSOP will be covering his banner in the future
I’m disgusted, I used to like Chris
Chris Ferguson‘s lawyer having the name Imrich is the uncanny-name-bookend of Moneymaker starting it all.
The biggest arrows though were flung by WPT Raw Deal host Tony Dunst:
If Chris Ferguson shows his face in poker again I’ll happily be the first one to drive a stake through that piece of shits ankle.
I’d bring retribution to Lederer too if I weren’t so confident that the fat fuck will eat himself to death if he has any money left.
Expect absolute bedlam to ensue if Ferguson actually does keep the Tapie-Tilt deal from happening.
