Howard Lederer Full Tilt Poker

The folks from Quadjacks.com ran into Full Tilt Poker head honcho Howard Lederer while in Vegas June 23 but couldn’t get any information related to when the world’s second largest online poker room would be making payouts to US customers. 

Quadjacks.com’s Agent Marco approached Lederer at his car.  Lederer was asked if he could comment on the situation and simply said “When we are ready”.

Lederer seems to be eating well these days and was apparently stopped by Quadjacks at a restaurant.  He’s also driving in a luxury vehicle.

Meanwhile, US players are out a few million dollars as Full Tilt Poker continues to not pay them for over 2 months now following a seizure of funds by US authorities on April 15.

Many have speculated that Full Tilt could have removed funds from those accounts cited in the complaint prior to April 15.

Lederer is not named in the complaint.  He is widely considered to be a “primary shareholder” in the company and its chief representative.  Two founders of the company were indicted.  US authorities have already seized properties of one owner, Raymond Bitar.
