Lederer 'Accidentally' Sells 183% of Full Tilt

As the news broke yesterday that once-pretty poker pro Clonnie Gowan is to sue Full Tilt the Melted Felt mole was dispatched. Our findings were so shocking, so sensational and so on (!) that we just had to immediately bring you another Melted Felt exclusive.

The news broke that Howerd Lederer promised the ghostly pro 1% of Full Tilt back in 2004, in return for playing a bit of poker on the (then fledgling) site and regular videotaped 3-somes with Jennifer Tilly. With an insulting amount of just $250k in the post - Gowan declared war, stating in legal filings that she will not drop charges until able to parade both of Howerd's testicles nailed to a long pole through the streets of Las Vagas.

Our mole, in conjunction with Howerd Lederer's pet tuna*, uncovered a twist that could see the skin and bones of Gowan somewhat disapointed. After watching the classic comedy film 'The Producers' Howerd decided to promise no less than 183% of Full Tilt to build up his stable of poker pros - betting that at least half would be either dead, broke or too drunk to notice by the time it came to paying out any cash.

He also sold an addition 7% stake to Satan in return for pinning a scandal on UB - however the legal jurastiction of this is unknown, so we have not counted it in the total.

Here at Melted Felt we believe this story has a long way to run - stay tuned (oh and please read our disclaimer!).
