Chris Ferguson makes FTOPS XVII final table for $70,000

Tuesday, 10 August 2010

The seventeenth FTOPS tournament series is still going strong at Full Tilt Poker and the names in red are starting to emerge higher and higher up the rankings. In event #13 of FTOPS XVII, the $322 NL Hold ‘em, the final table was set in the early hours of this morning.

The talking point was the presence of Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Team Full Tilt Pro, who has not been seen very much at final tables even on the live circuit recently.

Ferguson wound up with all his chips in the middle against aces, especially bad considering he held AQ. His elimination in fifth place for $68,855 allowed "adinista" to take down the tournament for $210,000 after a three-handed deal.

The full results are as follows:
