Former Full Tilt Poker owner Howard Lederer released a statement via Daniel Negreanu's blog last month in which he, for example, apologised to the poker community and took full responsibility for Full Tilt's failure to protect player deposits leading up to Black Friday. Many believed that the timing of Lederer's statement had something to do with him wanting to return to the World Series of Poker this year.
Well, after years of absence from the World Series and about one week after Full Tilt co-owner Chris Ferguson made his first live appearance since Black Friday, Lederer showed up at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino last weekend to play some poker. According to PokerNews, he took a seat late in Level 4 of the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw Championship and quietly played a few hands before the break. He made it through the first day but fell in 32nd place on Day 2.
The $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw Championship is currently led by Jason Mercier. There are only 9 players remaining of 100 entries, and you will find a final table recap here on bankrollmob as soon as a winner has been crowned.
