Shamed into hiding for his part in the Full Tilt/Black Friday debacle, one-time poker hero Chris “Jesus” Ferguson may be preparing to make a return to poker as soon as the 2014 World Series of Poker. According to a number of posts on Two Plus Two by the highly credible, well-respected poker journalist Diamond Flush, with the repayment of players now complete Ferguson (and Lederer) may assume that all is forgiven.
With regards to Ferguson and Howard Lederer's state of mind, Diamond Flush writes:
He has plenty of money and does lead a non-ostentatious lifestyle, but I assure you he has plans to return to poker when ppl get repaid, as does Howard. They assume all is forgiven and some regulars in the LV circuit think thats true. Many otoh, do not.
Also, when posed with the theory that Ferguson has so much money from his Full Tilt disbursements that he’s unlikely to be seen in public again, Diamond Flush replied with what sounds like a statement of fact.
He expects to be back, especially for WSOP.
