Wait.. You Can't Put Jesus In Jail...

In a story that has rocked the poker community, the US Justice Department has accused principals of Full Tilt Poker... of defrauding thousands of online poker players out of more than $300 million that is still owed to them.  This isn’t some nickel and dime website… it’s been one of the best known, heavily promoted sites out there.   A US attorney said “Full Tilt was not a legitimate poker company, but a global Ponzi scheme.” And those named in the civil suit include Howard Lederer and Chris “Jesus” Ferguson.   Yikes.  Those who follow the game will tell you that these two don’t exactly fit the profile of “sleazy crooks.”  They’re two of the best known players in the world, whose reputations were impeccable.  Until now.  In any case, this doesn’t look good… and I’m anxious to see how this all shakes out.  All I know is… you just can’t put a guy named “Jesus” behind bars. ralphunden photo
