Karma: Howard Lederer Falls Short of The Money In The $50K Poker Players Championship

The poker community was getting their sweat on yesterday as Howard Lederer of Full Tilt fiasco fame was nearing the bubble in Event #55: $50K Poker Players Championship at the WSOP. But whether you have accepted his apology or not, nobody wanted to see him in the money.

Fate was not on Lederer’s side as Jason Mercier took him down, busting him out in 17th place.

However, Mercier couldn’t hold on for long, busting out himself in 16th place.

Play resumes on Wednesday with Justin Bonomo in the chip lead and 2-time winner of the event, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi in second place with just 6 players remaining.
