It’s becoming more about Polk and Torreli than it is Daniel “Cletus” Wolf who was the player going heads up against Torelli during a Poker Night in America recording when the latter noticed $10,000 in chips hidden behind the rest of Torreli’s stack.
Watch Polk take to Joey Ingram’s Poker Life Podcast to hear what he has to say.
After making his comeback appearance at last year’sWorld Series of Poker, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, considered by many to be responsible for the downfall of Full Tilt after Black Friday which left players without access to their funds for years, is in the running to become this year’s Player of the Year after cashing for the fourteen time this series.
His fourteen cash came after finishing 277th in the $888 Crazy Eights event for $3,611. This broke last year’s record of thirteen cashes from Roland Israelashvili. Since breaking the record, two other players have tied it: Ryan Hughes and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up John Racener.
Ferguson’s latest cash puts him in 4th place for WSOP Player of the Year, where a strong finish to the Series (particularly in the Main Event) could catapult him to the top and into the spotlight once again.
