Erick Lindgren Files For Bankruptcy Again

Tags: Bankruptcy, Erick Lindgren, IRS, poker debts, The Rational Group.
Posted on 18 June 2015 by "T".

Erick Lindgren, a former Full Tilt pro and 2008's WSOP Player of The Year, has filed for bankruptcy for the second time in thee years. According to Blomberg Business, Lindgren owes over $8 million and listed assets of less than $50,000 in Chapter 11 papers on Tuesday in U.S. Bakruptcy Court in Las Vegas.

The Rational Group, which owns PokerStars and Full Tilt, sued Lindgren earlier this year for failing to return a mistakenly credited $2.5 million loan to his Full Tilt account in 2011.

His bankruptcy in 2012 was closed without him being able to clear up his debts. Back then he owed the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) $3.8 million.

Now some of you might think that Lindgren is lying low, avoiding the media etc., but the fact is that he's busy playing events at the 2015 World Series of Poker. (He finished 7th in the Millionaire Maker event for $193k on June 5).

I don't know if I feel any sympathy for Lingren or not.I think all this "mistaken credit" just before full tilt closed was very strange and since then he has won hundreds of thousands of dollars so maybe it didn't have to go this far.

It would be really funny to find out what exactly happened with those mistaken millions though. Did he get send it to his bank account? Or played all of it away on FT? Not that I care about this, but I hope he spent some of it on booze and girls Big Smile
