Jesus Arrives in Vegas: Resurrected Two Months After Full Tilt Poker Indictment

One of the most recognizable faces of Full Tilt Poker, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, has made an appearance in Las Vegas at the Lotus of Siam.

Ferguson, like other Full Tilt Poker pros, continue to maintain a low profile following the indictments of FTP’s two owners on April 15.  The company pulled out of the US market and has not paid a single customer residing in the US with the exception of Bluff Magazine publisher Eric Morris, who somehow managed to get his ad fees paid.

Sources close to Gambling911.com confirm that US authorities had considered indicting professional poker player representatives, some of whom have claimed to hold stakes in Full Tilt Poker.   Ferguson admitted this in an interview some years ago. 

“They could go after these pros but it would look bad,” our source tells us. 

Howard Lederer, who in recent years was portrayed as the de facto owner of Full Tilt Poker, has maintained an extremely low profile.  Until he showed up at a Vegas tournament last week, he was widely believed to be living in a cave. 

Ferguson is named “Jesus” for his Christ-like beard.  His first name, “Chris”, literally means “Christ-like” and “Son of the Lord”.  He is anything but.  Ferguson is an outspoken atheist.
