Chris Ferguson is assured to be crowned the 2017 World Series of Poker Player of the Year. The news was received in an announcement by the WSOP via Twitter on Monday, following the elimination of second-in-points John Racener from the final POY-eligible event of the year.
For his POY win, Ferguson will be offering an entry into the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event next year and get his face on a banner that will be unveiled in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino with the other former WSOP Players of the Year and WSOP Main Event winners.
Ferguson went into the WSOPE in October with the advantage in the Player of the Year race after his 17 cashes and two top-four finishes in $10,000 Championship events in the 2017 WSOP in Las Vegas. His summer performance bagged him a €10,350 buy-in to the WSOPE Main Event at King’s Casino in Rozvadov which kicked off with two starting flights over the weekend.
After six WSOPE clashes, including his sixth bracelet win in Event #7: €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better for €39,289, Ferguson advanced his lead in the POY race as the final qualifying event neared.
Going into the WSOPE Main Event on Saturday, Racener was in the best spot to challenge Ferguson for POY, sitting 136 points behind, while Ryan Hughes had 184 points to make up in third place. When Racener was eliminated on Day 2 Monday, Ferguson had the title locked up.
As a controversial figure in the poker world since his alleged hand in the Full Tilt Poker scandal, Ferguson stayed clear of live poker tournaments after “Black Friday” on April 15, 2011 but made a comeback to the fallen in the 2016 WSOP, prompting outrage from many in the community.
Players’ reactions as recorded by PokerNews’ Julia Lee at WSOPE Rozvadov were mostly positive and congratulatory towards Ferguson with the exception of 888poker Ambassador and online poker pro Parker Talbot aka “Tonkaaaap”, who feels that Ferguson’s winning of the POY title is… let’s just say — not good for poker.

A poker dealer who attempted skimming little amounts of the games he dealt in 2015 has been sentenced by a court in Cleveland. Randall White, who dealt poker games at the Horseshoe Cleveland, was given an 18 months probation sentence as well as two-hundred-fifty hours of community work for stealing a suggested $711 from the tables.
White faced up to 6 years behind the bars on felony gambling cases, a punishment he could be hit with if he fails to fulfill the conditions of his probation.
White admitted to the presiding judge that he stole the money in hopes of raising some extra cash to help cover his daughter’s legal fees. Perhaps in hopes of staying unnoticed, he tried taking the money in $5 and $10 increments and putting the chips in with the rest of his tips.
His gambit evidently broke down as he was caught. A tale posted on a leading website in July, last year, suggested that a dealer at Horseshoe had been caught while stealing chips as well as sliding them into his tip jar.
He was caught up with by gaming agents looking at security footage who keyed out the repeated theft. The perpetrator was not distinguished in the piece, but the timing might coincides with the piece on that site that states White was captured in June.

It brought a total of 316 registrations which the organizers hope to increase when the next event with a $100, 000 guarantees starts from July 16 at Canterbury Park.
