Howard Lederer Vegas Home

The mansion purchased by Full Tilt Poker bigwig pro rep Howard Lederer is a rare commodity in Las Vegas these days.  It actually went up in value since being purchased last year. 

The total taxable income for 2012 is listed at $2908323 compared to $2591983 last year. 

The Summerlin Village 18 parcel lot has 0.43 Acres, 5 bedrooms and 5 ½ bathrooms along with 8892 of living space. 

Lederer hasn’t been heard from since the company he works for (and reportedly held shares in) was indicted last month. 

At the time of the sale, Lederer seemed to care little about a pending grand jury  investigation into Full Tilt.

Appearing at a Washington, D.C. charity poker event, the Philadelphia Inquirer noted that Lederer maintained his poker face throughout, despite the rumored investigation.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Such an association, regardless of how fuzzy, would tend to make most folks nervous, but Lederer - known as "The Professor" for his cerebral approach to card-playing - was relaxed, smiling and posing for photos with fans at the Hyatt Regency in D.C.

"I can't comment on something that I don't even know exists," Lederer said of the grand jury whispers.

Lederer has yet to be named in any indictments.

Full Tilt Poker founder Raymond Bitar, on the other hand, has been. 

Of the three companies and individuals charged April 15, approximately half the bank accounts seized were those belonging to Bitar. 

Interpol is currently hunting down Bitar and other “at large” defendants.

The home of Howard Lederer is one of the nicest in Vegas and on the market for close to $5 million
