Questions regarding Lederers and Full Tilt Poker store arise

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Sep 19, 2011 Posted in Online Poker News, Poker Gossip | No Comments »

QuadJacks.com, known mainly for their poker podcasts, has been doing a bit of investigating in recent weeks and has uncovered an interesting relationship between the Full Tilt Poker store and the Lederer family.

According to QuadJacks, the Full Tilt Poker store was operated by just two people (which points to the store using vendors to supply most of their orders sort of like cafepress.com) one of which, Scott Lederer, has been revealed to be –surprise, surprise– the cousin of Full Tilt Poker founder and likely owner Howard Lederer.

According to the QuadJacks report, the company Eyecon Marketing Group, founded in 2000 and located in Atlanta, Georgia, has made millions of dollars running the Full Tilt pokerstore over the past several years, with Scott Lederer listed as the president and owner of the company that QuadJacks describes as a “logo merchandising company specializing in corporate apparel, promotional products and corporate branding solutions.”

What connection Howard Lederer, or any other Full Tilt Poker principle, has to the company or to the company’s profits is unclear –Whether Howard Lederer profited from this arrangement or simply set up his cousin with a sweetheart job remains to be seen at this point.

QuadJacks did contact Scott Lederer for comment, but like his cousin has one since Black Friday, he refused to comment on the matter.
