2016 WSOP: Howard Lederer's Comeback

Posted on 13 June 2016 by "T".

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.

We all knew, after that so called apology, that it was so he could come back and play in the World Series Of Poker. I couldn't play if i had done what his company had done but some people have no shame

Indeed that's why he apologized before coming to play so that's why I also think it was not a sincere one and also Chris Jesus Ferguson too made his comeback but is refusing to make any comments on Black Friday etc... shame on them Thumbs Down

"But some people have no shame," of course it is very much to blame for black Friday and he received his punishment for that ... but you just pack your life will not change, and their interests remain unchanged ... Poker is like are irreversible disease .. . once ill and sick for the rest of life)))

"he recived his punishment" and how is that exactly? can you explain to me??? He should be in jail for what he did... and I dont know how would they let him and ferguson play on series... they are shame for poker world, and they should never play again... Also I am desapointed with Daniel by defending them... He was one of the first that accuse them and attack them in first place, and his words were that they should end up in jail and never play poker again... and now he is telling other story... it amaze me how people doesnt stick to their words, and how they change opinions... but I am not suprised with Daniel... he desapointed me a lot in last years, by supporting ps changings and simular things...
