The disgraced poker pro made his first public appearance since being implicated as part of a ponzi scheme tied to Full Tilt Poker back in 2011.

Ferguson along with three other individuals were alleged to have defrauded poker players out of more than $440 million over a four year period as part of a scheme tied to what had been the world’s second largest online poker room, Full Tilt Poker.

One player lashed out at Ferguson while he was playing, simply telling the former Full Tilt Poker executive: “Go f*** yourself!”.  Ferguson’s reaction was somewhat hard to gage from the 4 second video.

A few days ago, one of the most successful players, Daniel Negreanu, referred to Ferguson as “weaselly”.

Robbie Strayznski and Shimi Weiss debated whether Ferguson should be showing his face at the World Series of Poker, or anywhere else for that matter.
