The Muck: Ferguson's Success Fuels the Fire, Tom Dwan Engaged?

The Muck: Ferguson's Success Fuels the Fire, Tom Dwan Engaged? 0001

  • @phil_hellmuth shows support for Chris Ferguson's hot WSOPE run but @RealKidPoker & others voice opposition

  • @PeteManzinelli gets a tip from @badams78 that @TomDwan may be hearing wedding bells soon

Chris Ferguson is having a run like no other at the World Series of Poker this year with 17 cashes and two final tables this past summer. And so far at the World Series of Poker Europe, he's cashed six times already, including his win in Event #7: €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. It's not surprising that he won a bracelet, it's more like a severe shock to the system.

And even though we should have predicted an eventual win, that doesn't mean we have to like it.

Ferguson's Win Brings out the Haters

Leave it to Ferguson to stir the pot and light our Twitter feed on fire. We haven't seen this much activity (outside of the endless Bitcoin discussions) in a while.

Ferguson Finds a Friend

While the majority of the poker community isn't ready to forgive, Phil Hellmuth couldn't resist jumping into the limelight, as only Hellmuth can. In the end, this picture of Hellmuth and Ferguson became the real story.

You have to wonder if he was so focused on the camera that he forgot the optics. Don't worry though; he was quickly reminded.

Hellmuth's support prompted a rare reply and public comment from the recent bracelet winner himself.

It's probably fair to say if Ferguson started talking to the poker community, they might begin to warm up.

Daniel Negreanu weighed in again with his thoughts on Howard Lederer and why he's not quite ready to forgive Ferguson.

And in true Hellmuth fashion, he just had to have the last word.

Stay tuned for round two of "Poker Twitter on Fire," which is scheduled to happen at the conclusion of the WSOP Europe, where Ferguson is on track to claim the Player of the Year title. We're holding our breath.

Missing Tommy Dwanz

While some might wish Ferguson would go missing, our fascination with a fellow Full Tilt pro, the elusive Tom Dwan, never seems to fade. And to feed that obsession, PokerTube's Pete Manzinelli is on the hunt to find the missing "Tommy Dwanz".

While presenting the action at King of the Hill III in Pittsburgh last month, Manzinelli cornered Brandon Adams and asked, "Is he being held against his will" in China?

And Adams dropped a bombshell (literally) that included: Vegas, babies, and a ring.

Check out Manzinelli's latest report and his plea for best man status.
