Level 8 : 500-1,000, 100 ante
One of poker's most famous and most infamous has hit the rail from Table 712. Chris Ferguson's old seat was occupied by another player when we passed his table most recently, and his old tablemates filled us in on what happened.
Apparently, Ferguson and Jerome Evans saw a flop. Ferguson bet 5,000, Jerome Evans made it 17,000, and Ferguson put his stack of about 40,000 in with . Unfortunately for the 2000 WSOP Main Event champ, Evans had flopped a set of twos and had him way behind, with Ferguson unable to pull off the subsequent miracle to survive.
