    Is Phil really that tone-deaf, or is he just trying to piss people off?

    Or does he just have the attitude that those who benefited from thieving online poker sites need to stick together?

    Will you still be rewatching your 60 minutes interview on vhs and whining about this in 2045?

    You would think Chris Ferguson would want to state publically the issues he can with what happened with Full Tilt being the largest percentage holder of the company but instead he practices avoidance.

    Chris is in dream land if he thinks people are going to forget this and it might not do much but telling the story is at least a start. All the guy has to say is "we mismanaged the company and got in debt with over spending/compensating so we spent player money in the moment knowing we would make it back quickly with all the fresh deposits coming in but when Black Friday happened we were screwed".

    Phil is actually a really good guy. I know this because he makes a point of repeatedly proclaiming that he's never cheated on his wife.

    Also worth pointing out, Chris' bracelet and POY win all going down at known scammer Leon Tsoukerniks casino.

    Sad time for poker.

    Chris Fer...didn't enter event 10, the $111,111 high roller. I wonder how many POY Pts that is worth? Last event 11, the 10k main event also likely worth alot of points, so Racener who in 2nd did enter, the high roller, might gain some ground. Phil Helmuth was the 2nd player out. He lasted 12 hands...lol. how do you bust in level one of a 3 day 111k tournament with A 10. Phil did.

    I hope Ferguson wins POY, I'm tired of seeing these young kids dominating all the old school players. It would be impressive regardless of how you think of his actions/silence concerning the fulltilt scandal.

Nobody from UB/AP or FTP shit has been banned per se other then 1994 ME Champion Hamilton and that was due to direct involvement in actual cheating going on.. You can steal from players and people will forgive you it seems (Hell poker is full of seedy players and crooks and thieves obviously) but actively cheat to win and its the poker equivalent of premeditated murder and pedophilia combined basically.. Now I don't think theres any written statement that Hamilton is banned/86d but I believe its understood essentially and I don't believe he's shown up recently that Im aware of..

    As for WSOPE they bloody well knew Tsoukernik was a thief/scammer/welcher and had the knowledge in plenty of time to relocate the WSOPE poker series and chose not to.. Again I feel bad for KevMath taking a beating at times as he has as the voice of WSOP on Twitter but this was indeed avoidable and should never have happened.. To me this is soo much worse then the Fergeuson issue because Leon made millions off this WSOPE series of events as he collected the 'service fees' aka rake on the tournaments..He likely made millions off degen players busting out and then hitting the pits or even degens cashing out and even better dumping their winnings back to him in his own casino.. Leon directly gained financial enrichment from all the goings on and WSOP had the chance to do the right thing and they chose not to do so.. Sorry but theres zero excuse for this happening and thus WSOP rewarding disgusting bad behavior by the owner of Kings Casino..
