Summary

He has long, brown hair and a beard, and he wears a cowboy hat and dark sun-glasses. He dresses in all black and always plays in complete silence. The other players call him "Jesus." He looks like he's from poker's long-gone era of cowboys and backroom games. Well he's not-and to misjudge him would be a mistake that could cost an opponent everything. Chris "Jesus" Ferguson is one of the best poker players in the world. He has a Ph.D. in computer science, five World Series of Poker bracelets, and a World Series Championship title. But he's a lot more than just a poker player. He's also a competitive ballroom dancer, a businessman, and, according to other professional players, just about the nicest guy there is playing on the tournament circuit today. Book jacket.
