Lederer set to break silence

Tuesday, 18 September 2012

Howard Lederer is finally set to finally break his lengthy silence over Full Tilt Poker and the Black Friday scandal. PokerNews has confirmed that it conducted a seven-hour interview with the former Full Tilt insider last week.

The so called “Lederer Files” interview will be released in six or seven 30-minute video segments, with the first one set to be released later today and the rest following throughout this week.

The interview was carried out before the Department of Justice filed the amended complaint on September 10th however, so obviously there will be nothing on that.

Most of the poker community will probably be pleased to hear that PokerNews report that they didn't make it easy on Howard, comprehensively questioning him on all matters Full Tilt Poker, including the segregation of funds, Ray Bitar, Phil Ivey and the PokerStars deal.

Meanwhile, 2+2 owner Mason Malmuth has said that they intend to do a follow-up interview with Lederer, “to address any additional questions that may come up and to address some issues that may not have been covered as completely as possible in his initial interview with Poker News.“

Malmuth has invited posters in the relevant forum thread to offer their questions, so if any readers have questions they want to ask Lederer, this might be their only shot to get them answered!
