AbeFroman won his first-ever bracelet and $445K in cash. Well done, Ferris. If you're not familiar with the screen name, it's an homage to “Ferris Bueller's Day Off” starring Mathew Broderick. During one of the funniest scenes in the movie, Ferris Bueller and his friends sneak into a fancy restaurant and steal the reservation set for Abe Froman aka the Sausage King of Chicago. Hilarity ensues.
