Watch Chris Ferguson’s Nothingburger Full Tilt Statement

It has only taken 7 years for Chris “Jesus” Ferguson to apologise for his part in the Full Tilt fiasco that followed Black Friday. He has finally commented via Vimeo. Check it out below.

Although his intentions for the apology may be sincere, it does seem as though he has issued a bit of a nothingburger of a statement—the video is only a merger 45 seconds long.

Last year during the World Series of Poker Ferguson got serious flack, with anger from the rail.
Daniel Negreanu said at the timee: “I would just assume that any human being with a shred of decency would own some of it and at least have some sort of apology.”

However, it seems there is still a long way to go to get back into Negreanu’s good books.
