Jesus Needs to Rise Again

Chris Ferguson

It's not often you overlook a man with nipple-length hair and a cowboy hat, but Chris Ferguson has been as quiet as a nun in a library today, and barely made a mark on any of our reports.

At the moment, Ferguson is the only player with less than his starting stack, the carrot-chopping, ballroom-dancing high stakes pro currently nurturing a mere 2,450 in chips.

But despite his lack of current stature, you simply can't rule him out. With over eight million dollars in live tournament winnings, he currently sits in 19th in the all-time money list and is regarded as a legend of the game.

In his illustrious poker career, he's won no fewer than five bracelets, including his Main Event win in 2000 when he defeated TJ Cloutier heads-up for the $1,500,000 first prize.

However, despite all his success, Ferguson has never got his hands on a WSOPE bracelet. He's made two finals before, but never struck gold, and he'd love for this year to be his first.
