Chris Ferguson qualifies for being one of the wisest of all professional poker players. He studied computer science, in which he earned a Ph.D, and plays a highly mathematical style, analyzing possible patterns, simulating computer games and using great poker theory, to help him improve his skills and understanding of the game. He's got many nicknames, but the most know is "Jesus", because of his look, and he has played poker professionally since 1993, though his years of experience go back to before he turned 10 years old. In his years as professional poker celebrity, his total winnings exceed $7,500,000, which is primary result of his many tournaments, since he only very rarely plays cash games. He is member of Team Full Tilt, of which also great players such as Gus Hansen and Phil Ivey are members. Of tournaments, he's already won many, among which one of them was the World Series of Poker in 2000. He is also the only player to have won three Word Series of Poker Championship events.
Besides playing poker, Chris Ferguson is also head of a software company.
The Christ Ferguson Challenge
In January 2007, Mr. Ferguson accepted a challenge, for which he had to start entirely from scratch in online poker, and make $10,000. He would then donate the winnings to the Save the Children Foundation. He started with the Full tilt Poker client only, so he had to play Freerolls until he'd made enough money to play cash games and real-money tournaments.
By September 2007, he reached the goal and true to his word, he donated all $10 thousand to the Save the Children Foundation. He still plays online at Full Tilt Poker only, and you have the chance to meet him online. Simply download the Full Tilt client, enter GETMORE as Referral Code during sign up to get our latest bonus, and look for him at the tables.
