Erick Lindgren Files Bankruptcy Again!

It looks like poker’s most well known welcher is at it again.

According to Bloomberg Business, Erick Lindgren is once again seeking protection from his creditors through bankruptcy proceedings, and has assets totaling less than $50,000. This just one week after he scored $193,675 for coming in 7th place at the World Series of Poker Millionaire Maker event.

Lindgren is thought to owe in excess of $8 million. Rational Group—parent company of PokerStars and Full Tilt—sued him earlier this year for $2.5 million in debts owed to Full Tilt that date back to around the time of Black Friday

He was also outed on the 2 + 2 forums by sports bettor Haralabos Voulgaris.
