Aria players want to ban Lederer

Nick DiVella is a 5/10NL reg, who is respected by the poker room staff, and he has a bunch of poker friends in Vegas.

Could this work?

Re: Aria players want to ban Lederer

So these players will boycott the Aria in favour of all those nearby poker rooms with Lederer bans in place. Hmmm.

I agree that he should be banned. The problem is do you then ban everyone with a shady past? There are a fair few in this game we play now.

Wheeler called Lederer’s presence a “safety issue,” perhaps for Lederer himself.

When Lederer first returned to the tables, there were reports that Bellagio and Aria received death threat phone calls after he arrived to play.

Both casinos planted security guards in front of their respective glass-encased high-stakes tables.
They don't seem to care that he ripped everybody off but it seems that if they can be made to think his physical safety is at risk by being there, they might ban him for that.

Making death threats is a crime so I'm not advocating anybody call Aria and make a credible threat they're going to kill him - but that would seem to be the type of angle that will be effective here, not players signing a petition based on ethics and morals.

Re: Aria players want to ban Lederer

Yeah but if they lose enough business over it their hand could be forced.
But where is the line drawn after that? That mob mentality could get really out of hand.

Re: Aria players want to ban Lederer

Howard must have some set on him.... to be playing nosebleeds in one of the most crowded poker rooms in the world, with FTP reopening collecting rake, and players STILL not being repaid.... downright unbelievable.

Very few have the past of defrauding poker players everywhere. Shadiness can be overlooked. Shadiness that directly defrauded your customer base could be grounds for a ban.

Casinos can ban people for any reason they want.
