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.
