Howard Lederer Sighting in Las Vegas

Howard Lederer, the main poker face behind indicted online poker room Full Tilt Poker, has emerged for the first time since Black Friday April 15. 

From Quadjacks.com:

Jon Friedberg and Marie-Lizette were out for a late dinner at Sen of Japan and ran into Howard Lederer, Annie Duke and her boyfriend Joseph Reitman. They did not take any pictures due to the fact that the flash would have gone off and they did not want to look like idiots, so somehow they approached the table and said hello. We got tipped off and Marco left right away however by the time he reached the location they had already left.

With news that Full Tilt Poker will be making an announcement tomorrow, Howard Lederer might just be back in America to address his clients for the first time since black Friday face to face. I have no idea why else the main owner for Full Tilt Poker, Howard Lederer would not be seen or heard for so long while hiding out in Ireland, and then come all the way back to Las Vegas to make such an announcement.

We at QuadJacks Poker Radio will be waiting for Full Tilt Poker’s BIG announcement tomorrow and hope that the largest owner of Full Tilt Poker Howard Lederer will be a man and speak to the people he has held hostage for over 50+ days. Make things right Howard Lederer since you are now back in America eating sushi at Sen of Japan here in Las Vegas, and give the American Full Tilt Poker players their money BACK!

Full Tilt Poker is yet to refund its US players their money back after the Department of Justice froze many of the company's bank accounts.  Full Tilt lawyers are currently negotiating a deal with the DOJ to release these funds to players.  A number of homes owned by indicted Full Tilt owner Raymond Bitar were recently seized in the US.
