Pokercast 497 - WSOP 2018 & The Ferguson Apology with Lance Bradley

Episode #497 - June 14th, 2018

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On this episode of the Pokercast: After an extended break the guys return to update you on what’s been happening in the poker world, and a lot has been happening! Adam was down in Vegas for the beginning of the WSOP while Terrence is about to head down there. We get a trip report from Adam including a live hand review of some high stakes action in Bobby’s Room and the guys explain the long break.
In ICYMI: Lance Bradley joins the show to break down Chris Ferguson’s weak apology video and controversy surrounding his banners in the rio. The guys also talk about notable bracelet winners and storylines so far from the World Series and the Polk/Negreaunu beef at the Super High Roller Bowl.

Not a statistically significant distance from first.

Re: Pokercast 497 - WSOP 2018 & The Ferguson Apology with Lance Bradley

Great overview of the Ferguson "apology" video. You guys touched on one thing I had forgotten about, namely his holding up the Tapie deal. And sure, we NOW know that the Tapie deal could have been disastrous, but at the time, it was a glimmer of hope that the company would be saved.

In fact, it's fairly interesting to go back to Diamond Flush's coverage of the post-Black Friday Full Tilt saga all these years later: http://www.subjectpoker.com/2012/01/...bank-accounts/

The funniest part of the Ferguson video was his mentioning his "fans." While it's altogether possible that he did have actual fans, anyone who would still consider themselves as such were not likely those who had sizable sums of money tied up in FTP. They were –*as you guys mentioned – casual poker fans who watched a lot of boom-era poker TV. So apologizing to his "fans" is pointless. They are not the ones who were wronged.

Given that Chris got a lot of grief for saying absolutely nothing over the years and also given how it angered Adam and others, I am curious to know whether you guys think this apology is better than nothing at all. I am leaning towards better than nothing, but given the reaction I am not sure what everyone else thinks.

In the grand scheme, do you think it would have made much difference? I think the players were going to get paid as part of that deal anyway, But like you point out, at the time they should have taken the deal. Chris wasn't blocking it because of any concerns about the Tapie Group. It was for his own agenda.

I think this announcement has a reason, otherwise, why bother? I guess we find out in the next 12 months what the angle is.
