The Sunday Briefing: Ferguson Falls Short of FTOPS Glory

Chris Ferguson

An action-packed Sunday of online poker came to an end early Monday morning as Event #13 of FTOPS XVII ran well past sunrise on the east coast. Headlining the final table was none other than Chris "Jesus" Ferguson. However, he bowed out in fifth place after his four-bet shove with ace-queen ran into aces, paving the way for andinista to take down the tournament for $209,606.83. Also winning gold jerseys on Sunday were FM2Tand Mark "xqsays" Radoja, who won his second.

The PokerStars Sunday Million was won outright by cmis91for $246,064.05. Other big winners on PokerStars included Ryan "OlyDaJew" Olisar, Chris "SLOPPYKLOD" Klodnicki, Shawn "slimshaggy" Luman, and Mohsin "sms9231" Charania.
