Chris Ferguson Returns to WSOP Howard Lederer Looming So WRONG
Chris Ferguson returned to the World Series of Poker playing the $10,000 7 Card Stud Championship, which is the 2nd event of the 2016 WSOP.
There was speculation that Howard Lederer was planning on playing some World Series of Poker events this year. Chris Ferguson was a bit of an outside shot to see him back, but sure enough it appears both of these villains have the balls to show up at the World Series of Poker this year.
They should be banned from every casino, every online poker site in the world. They shouldn’t be back this year, they shouldn’t be back ever.
These two are criminals that have destroyed lives, crushed dreams and cost people around the world millions of dollars.
I always like to bring up the hidden victims of the Full Tilt, because I feel like one of them.
We all know that thousands of people had money locked up on Full Tilt, including some people having most of their net worth on Full Tilt Poker. Which is definitely a horrible feeling, especially for those who had more than 4 figures stuck on there.
What about the people including myself who attempted to withdrawal on Full Tilt when things were starting to look bleak, then have that withdrawal cancelled by Full Tilt and returned to my account for no reason. To me that money became worthless, because I couldn’t cash out to Moneybookers of all things. I was so pissed off that Full Tilt didn’t process my withdrawal and then seen it back in my account so I punted it off. What about all the people who couldn’t cash out and punted it off, because to them the money was worthless.
What about how Full Tilt’s demise led to Poker Stars having the opportunity to own a poker monopoly. This year especially Poker Stars is really contributing to killing online poker. No one should be playing on Poker Stars unless you are a mixed game player. If you’re a cash game player, you should be grinding on Unibet. If you’re a tournament player you should be playing on Party Poker.
What about the players that had to borrow money, play lower stakes and lost huge amounts of EV by having their bankroll cut significantly when Full Tilt froze their funds.
What about how online poker’s reputation was severely tarnished, because recreational players didn’t want to take what they considered a risk of putting money online. That cost everyone probably 100’s of millions of dollars.
What Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson contributed to caused so much more damage than just freezing player accounts. It really hurt everyone who plays online poker around the world, in more ways than one.
There is nothing they can do to make up for what they did, Lederer made some way too late, way too meaningless apology thru Daniel Negreanu’s blog.
When I see that I lose even more respect for Daniel Negreanu, he’s really turning into a piece of shit. He has done nothing while Poker Stars has made horrible changes that has hurt every grinder out there. He is standing up for Howard Lederer, when you think of Howard Lederer and what he has done, think of Daniel Negreanu now too. I’m glad that Unibet Poker is rising while other sites are falling. They are doing things right by keeping games soft and fair for everyone. Any decent poker player can make money at Unibet Poker playing cash games, if you can’t you’re not a good poker player.
Best Part of Chris Ferguson returning to the World Series of Poker
He didn’t cash as he was eliminated on Day 1, leaving $10,000 going back to the poker community. Happy to see Daniel Negreanu also not make Day 2.
What are these guys thinking, imagine if they were to win a bracelet or make a deep run, I hope they get berated to the point that they cry and feel some of that pain that millions have felt because of their actions.
Get out of poker Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer, and stay out!
