This is why this tweet from Phil Hellmuth upset a lot of people frankly, Including me, because we're you're just letting him off the hook here for a problem that cost people millions of dollars. And maybe it wasn't you specifically here Phil, But you have to have a little common sense to understand how people feel sure that money eventually got paid out, but not because of Full Tilt. They were not the ones that ended up fixing this situation and both how our letter and Ferguson were involved in the process to some degree, not to mention that, but maybe have a little. You know a little appreciation for The pain that people were put through in that and don't just take a picture with the guy's smile and be like everything's good, We're great, because people are not gon na respond. Well, to that, It's gon na be upsetting to them, and I think that maybe he should shown a little more play here.
I don't know what the word would be here: white magic when it comes to understanding How people would feel. Now there were some great responses on Twitter to that picture from Phil, including Dean eggs jumping in there Saying, couldn't find time to grab a selfie with Harvey Weinstein Chris Brown or Bernie Madoff Next best thing, I guess, or this street for Mercier - is Ferguson, bringing you Positivity or are you bringing it to him I'm confused here now, Phil did respond to some of these attacks on Twitter, Responding to one of them. When someone asked that he must have known that this picture would be seen as controversial. He said I'm a forgiving person in my book, poker brat.
I talked about how I believe Chris Ferguson is innocent, never missing an opportunity for a plug. He also retweeted someone saying hey Doug plug poker. Can you a video on what Jesus did wrong?
I don't understand Like I would just do that for you bro. So what are the ramifications of this? Well, Chris works in one Player of the Year and honestly he had a six string of cashes. I don't know that was 22 or 23 cashes this year, something Unbelievable, but he put together an insane string of these things to end it one winning Player of the Year. Now we all know who I feel about player of the year.
It'S extremely important. You know If you want, I would pull here. You got dig deep nice, I'm not gon na make it It's too far. I can't went there the year, But things are gon na get pretty awkward.
When Ferguson has to give his speech in the halls of the real while unveiling his poster, No man, I can imagine it now. Thank you. Thank you. So, first off My bad. I am certainly proud of my achievement here today. What a great year for me, I haven't scammed a single person, so that's great and also also This time, I'm taking money out of the community Legitimately legit all aboveboard, every one of those cash.
You can count it. We got 23 baby, The grade number 23. You know what I'm saying. I also want to make a brief statement about What occurred on Black Friday. I Just want to say this: I got your bunnies now and I'm gon na cash it out and rub it on my This is a controversial issue and while we like to joke about it a bunch, I don't exactly know what happened with Chris, He did not Come forward and talk about it Which wasn't exactly the best move, I think - and I also Will say that anyone involved in the company that allowed such a horrible thing to happen to their customers deserve some part of the blame. Does that mean that he is an inherently bad person?
No, does that mean that he, you know willing Wilfully took your money, No, it doesn't either, but the jury is still out and it probably always will be for what his exact situation was. And you know what have you asked me Doug? How do you feel about this Frankly, who gives a fuck about Player of the Year Honestly? Does it really matter? Does this really matter?
I mean, I guess the banner is a little insulting and I do feel like maybe that's a little over the line, But at the same time it's not like this is like we're voting for like who our favorite poker player is, and Chris Ferguson's taking It down. Whatever Let him have Player of the Year, if he wants to be part of the poker community that obviously a lot of people dislike him, It's kind of a weird choice, but he's certainly for you to make that decision. But let me know what you guys think in the comments below on this Chris Ferguson Victory and let me know about what you think about Phil Hellmuth position with Chris Ferguson, both interesting topics.
