Here’s one for the WTF files.
Embattled former Full Tilt frontman and all-around unwelcome poker heel Howard Lederer was reportedly seen partying in the VIP section of the Jane’s Addiction concert last night at Las Vegas’ Brooklyn Bowl where the band played their album Nothing’s Shocking in full.
Steve TT McLoughlin, former Two Plus Two bigwig and current Marketing Manager for industry-standard online poker HUD PokerTracker reportedly spotted the Hodor of Poker in the rowdy Jane’s Addiction crowd (in the roped off section).
Sure, it could be a joke, it could be mistake (so take this as a rumor) but it’s unlikely as McLoughin is a longtime Las Vegas resident, an industry insider and like the rest of the poker public is pretty pissed about the Full Tilt fiasco. The dude knows who Howard Lederer is.
To further back his claims, known Howie associate, professional cowboy hat wearer (and poker player) Andy Bloch was there for sure and he even snapped a photo of guitarist Dave Navarro from the VIP section.
Perhaps it’s understandable though that Howie is out on the town in Las Vegas, he’s probably having a hard time being at home with his vast $9million estate being put up on the market.
