This 2000 WSOP Champion is easily the most recognized face in poker. He is a top professional poker player, both a mathematician and computer scientist with a photographic memory. As of 2004, he had the most cashes ever in a single year at the WSOP.

Its hard to miss Chris Ferguson's tall shadowy frame at a tournament. His signature black hat, duster and long hair bring to poker an atmosphere of both excitement and foreboding. Though his clothing may disguise a genuinely nice guy, Chris Ferguson's poker skills are no act. He's played the best all over the world and has found the money more times than anyone can count. He's become a living poker legend, easily recognized and named by people with only passing poker knowledge.
