Howard Lederer was at one time a director of Full Tilt Poker. That company got slammed by the Feds and accused of running a Ponzi Scheme that paid out $444 million of customer money to themselves and the firm’s owners.
You may also know that Lederer provided PokerNews with an extensive, seven-hour interview, in which he responded to questions regarding Full Tilt Poker
, the board, the investors, Ray Bitar
, Chris Ferguson
, Phil Ivey
, Black Friday
and a whole lot more. Following the release of the now famous Lederer Files, Howard Lederer promised Diamond Flush an exclusive interview, so Diamond Flush reserved all comments on the veracity of the Lederer Files, waiting to set the record straight during the promised interview. That interview never happened, however, because Lederer backed out at the last minute, saying that it would cause too much stress for him and his family. Diamond Flush has now responded with the promise of a lot more stress to come. It will certainly be fascinating to follow the series that Diamond Flush has just begun writing, wherein DF promises to reveal the inconsistencies and distortions in the previous versions and to expose the “true”story behind Lederer and Full Tilt Poker.
