Wicked Chops Podcast: Terrible Tuesday

Ray Bitar and Howard Lederer rolled the dice that Full Tilt would recover from its payment processing issues--and lost.

On the latest Wicked Chops Podcast, we’re joined by poker lawyer/”journalist” Dave “F-Train” Behr to discuss the amended civil charges issued Tuesday against Full Tilt Poker Board of Director members Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, Ray Bitar, and Rafe Furst.

Key discussion points include:

  • What exactly the amendment means–and why it was issued as a civil complaint versus criminal charges.
  • Why the other FTP shareholders were NOT named (yet).
  • Why Terrible TuesdayTM feels dirtier than The Events of 4/15TM.
  • Did someone flipping lead to Tuesday’s amendment?
  • Why the mainstream media is mislabeling the charges as a “ponzi scheme” instead of what Tilt really is–a poorly company that shouldn’t have issued dividend payments after facing payment processing issues.
  • Is this the end of Tilt?
