Poker is a Ponzi scheme?

Very interesting article from the Wall Street Journal today… specifically talking about Full Tilt Poker but this could easily apply to other sites.

“The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday accused poker celebrities Howard Lederer and Christopher Ferguson among other executives of a major poker website of defrauding poker players out of more than $300 million.”

Full story here.

This is of course in the wake of the online poker crackdown earlier this year.

 

*UPDATE: Full Tilt fires back in a statement to the New York Times.
