WSOP Main Event: PokerStars Qualifiers Meet at Ferguson's Table
by Craig Cunningham
PokerStars players flew in from around the world to take on Chris "Jesus" Ferguson at Table 88.
Jessica Bian (1s) is ready for action. She hails from Toronto, a poker hotbed in the Great White North.
Richard Redmond (2s) bought into the Main Event, but can you blame him? He cashed at the World Series this year as well as at a Bellagio tournament Tuesday, but his real score was in the PokerStars Million, taking down $262k with the victory.
Eric Zabek (5s) from Utica, New York, is a commercial underwriter. He brought $13 to the table in a PokerStars Double Shootout, and here he sits three seats away from Ferguson (8s). Hung La, a top Las Vegas pro with one cash this year, sits next to Ferguson. David Colclough sits to his left in the 6s. Known as "El Blondie," Colclough is to be respected at any table.
Mats Nilsson (right, in 9s) has these tough players to his right. This Swedish cartoonist will work hard to make sure that today's work has a nice run throughout the next two weeks. Who wants a one-day story?
