Chris Ferguson

“Jesus”

Professional Poker Player Bio:

The more you watch professional poker, the more it seems like one big masquerade party. Chris “Jesus” Ferguson is no exception. His costume is that of the old west cowboy with a dark hat – kind of the Wild Bill Hickok of professional poker. Chris Ferguson jumped into the professional poker spotlight in 2000 with his World Series of Poker Championship win earning him a cool million and a half. He took down T.J. Cloutier, an old school player, in the final showdown. Soon enough, everyone knew the only thing old school about Chris was the hat.

Quite contrary to his costume, Chris Ferguson approaches poker from a purely intellectual viewpoint. With a PhD in Computer Science specializing in Artificial Intelligence from UCLA and parents who are both academic heavyweights, Chris is far from the shoot from the hip, instinctive “cowboy” poker image his get-up tries to convey. And that’s the way he likes it. Like war, poker is largely about misinformation, so every last detail helps.

Unlike most poker professionals, poker is only one of three pursuits in Chris Ferguson’s life. In addition to poker, Chris fosters his academic interest in Artificial Intelligence, as well as his interest in (of all things for a poker player who dresses in black) ballroom dancing. He’s not your typical obsessed poker pro, which is likely why he’s considered one of the more congenial pro players out there.
