Then you get a one-step pass above people who rummage through free public records to embarrass and humiliate other people, since you apparently paid something for that 'right'.

Finally Bill Edler scored 1st in a WSOP event that year for $900k and Erik paid Kirk back, but I remember Kirk outright saying "I wonder what would've happened if Bill Edler never came in first?".

Glenos I don't dispute that information is far to accessible on the interwebz these days. But my purpose for posting the information is to demonstrate the type of character this guy has. People who don't pay their debts are the SCUM OF SOCIETY!

This country was built by Creditors and their laws written by Creditors. Debtors' rights, even though they have them and have received more in the last century, are not infringed by the posting of these public records. Further, my post was on topic as this thread is discussing how E-Mutt has failed to pay his debts. When people fail to pay debts the creditors usually obtain judgment and proceed to levy on whatever assets are available. In order to discover what assets are available they make use of public records. I was curious to see if E-Dogg was "sitting pretty" and just thumbing his nose at his creditors. It appears that he has hit hard times, but that's what happens when you live beyond your means in a FANTASY LAND on DREAM CATCHER AVENUE

FYP.

I've found Erick to be a real asshat in person, so I'm not surprised. Also, we're talking about a relatively small amount of money, so only an asshat would stiff someone for that amount knowing that word would surely get out in the poker community.

E-Dog should change his nickname to D-Bag.

Re: Erick Lindgren Owes Over $100,000 for Fantasy League, Won't Pay

"He is an extremely good-natured and generous person who's always up for anything," writes Negreanu of Lindgren in a foreword to his 2005 book, Making the Final Table. "We have endured many of the ups and downs of living the poker life through our 20s, but we are able to keep each other grounded. Of course, we still know how to celebrate when all of the hard work pays off with a tournament win."

Great job of keeping Erick grounded Daniel. LOL!!!


And, in a throwback to his days as a kid in rural California, Lindgren still gets his kicks from playing sports when he takes a break from the poker table. But things have changed since then. This time around he's making $50,000 bets on whether he can slam dunk.

Looks like it's safe to say Erick can't dunk!!!

Unfortunately but Lindgren's reputation in the poker community is probably the LEAST of his concerns(remember the email exchange early in the thread?)

Plus, I'm sure Mr. Negreanu will help out his "best man" for some tourny buy-ins until he hits one(hopefully never). I mean, what are friends for???

Re: Erick Lindgren Owes Over $100,000 for Fantasy League, Won't Pay

Anybody else remember the time Phil Hellmuth said something like...Erick Lindgren is the most likable guy in poker. I don't know one person that has a bad word to say about him.
Thank you Phil for another one of your keen assessments. It's right up there with your "I'm very impressed with the management of UB. They really have their heads on straight."

That's a lovely narrative and all- and I agree that it's important to pay debts, indeed, that the very existence of mom, freedom and apple pie depends on it- but Lindgren is a huge degen in the poker world and it ain't exactly a secret.

He's the poker equivalent of subprime debt.

So, yes, when Mike Matusow lays off some insane sum to Ted ****ing Forrest about a weight loss prop bet, and when the inevitable happens (Forrest wins, Mike cannot pay), we can lament on poor Teds behalf over the injustice of it all, but you kinda can't help but shrug and say 'meh', whenever someone gets stiffed acting as a creditor for these kinds of degens.

Lindgren is apparently deeper than his dick in financial troubles. When the IRS has millions in liens against you, it's basically GG, life. You're on that treadmill forever. A bunch of people got in a game with him when they knew he had a history of not paying, or best case scenario, paying waaaaaaaaaaaay late and only after aggravation and now they lament?

Yeah. I weep for them about as much as I weep for the bank that kept writing $200,000 mortgages to crackhead welfare mothers, on ghetto houses that now sell for $8000. Yes, idealism about debt and 'the right thing' is fine, but implied risk is what it is.

Anyway, I hear Eskimo Clark is looking for a BI into the Daily $330. Gotta run!

As you can see Lindgren owes the IRS $2,358,995 for 2011 and $1,223,296 for 2010 AND further his house is only worth about $331,557 and finally it looks like he has defaulted on his mortgage at least once. To which I say, why doesn't this moron file bankruptcy??? WHAT A SCAB!!!







IRS : Mr Lindgren can we have the 3.5 million dollars you owe us sometime this week?

Erick : I apologize for the delay, holidays and now moving has tied me up timewise and cashwise. I will have it out to you as soon as i can, no later than next week.

IRS : Um Mr. Lindgren we are still waiting

Erick : Sorry family was in town. Will get a check out to you tomorrow.

IRS : Still haven't received your check Mr. Edog sir?

Erick : Just got back in town sorry. It went out today.

IRS :I don't think it went out, haven't gotten it?

Erick : Hey man just seeing your emails, sorry have been insanely busy with 3 month old, moving and getting back to playing. You have every right to do whatever you would like but i do promise I can get a check in the mail by tomorrow. I am in LA but have to go home tonight after poker to take care of some things. Hope that is ok.

The thing is though that he has a kid as well. I mean in like 10-15 years from now if Lindgren is still in deep sh*t, the result may end out giving his kid something that the kid did not deserve because of this or any other controversies.
