Chris Ferguson’s secret Full Tilt money

Chris Ferguson’s secret Full Tilt money

Friday, 27 January 2012

According to Subject: Poker, Chris Ferguson funnelled approximately $60,000,000 of his Full Tilt Poker payments into his own bank accounts from at least 2007, though he did allow $14.3 million to be used for post-Black Friday expenses.

In total, it seems that Ferguson withdrew or spent $45,000,000, though it is now reported that he and his lawyer, Ian Imrich, have threatened to take steps that may interfere with the FTP/Group Bernard Tapie deal.

In the original civil complaint, Ferguson was described as having eight figures “owed to him”. He, along with Howard Lederer, Ray Bitar and Rafe Furst, have been given a fourth extension to respond to the civil complaint by March 19.
