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

Think if the $2800 was paid earlier. Pretty sure EL regretting that now.

My guess for DN debit is BG!

Pretty sure this is the stuff NVG is interested in, Please tell us Annie Duke is busto

I'll bet anyone $50 it's not Barry. I'm cash broke at the moment so if I'm wrong i will have to settle it later.

Daniel do I recall correctly Phil Hellmuth owed you a large sum a few years back which took a while to get back? Obviously hes loaded so was it just natural for you to think you will get it back without issue so you didn't mind to much when you got it?

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

I've asked Daniel twice now if he and Erick are still "close" friends and have gotten no response.

Okay, cool - but you also never answered if he owes you a nice chunk of change

My guess - YUP

Lastly Daniel - whether you want to admit it or not - E-Dog being your "close" friend for years will cloud your overall judgement of him and his actions. If this was Howard Lederer doing all this your posts would be filled with HATE and you know it, right???

Aren't these qualifiers, in effect, at least semi-defenses of Edog?

Like he says, the amount owed to Voulgaris is insanely insane and yet Erick Lindgren payd 80% of it. Let's just say that the amount is 3mm or in that area. Paying upwards of 2,5mil, even tho it takes ages, tells me that he at least wants to be clear of this.

I don't see EL, after reading this, as a scammer or welcher. His excuses are BS and lies, but everything I read about him and his degeneracy indicates that he eventually pays. Even the guys in the HSNL thread says that. After a lot of hassle and needling. As far as I can tell he's never said "fu I won't pay". That has to count for something.

Also, this is really blowing up because it's Lindgren. Had it been someone you could expect this from, like Chino, it would have been more meh. ELs got this clean appearance and seems like a really good guy on the screen and now that he's falling from grace a lot of people seem to really enjoy that. It's like "I knew there was something fishy about that guy".

Level 3: 100-200, ante

It looked as though the field was going to be down a Shooting Star as the first two levels of play came and went without an appearance from Erick Lindgren.

Turns out Lindgren was still coming, just running a little late. Lindgren missed his flight, but caught another one that got him to Bay 101 in time to play, but not in time to make the group photo.

With Lindgren's arrival, there are now 28 bounties in today's field.


...
When someone busts Lindgren, do they have to wait a couple years for the bounty?

If FTP pay the players 80% in 8 years that's good enough in my opinion.

Seriously wtf is this ****? You make $3m+/year? You pay your ****ing debts before you live like a baller and piss away money gambling.


I can't even imagine the stress this probably caused Haralabous during these years. Not to mention if it's as big a sum as implied it probably cost him a lot of value as the money could have been used in other ventures.
And from his post it seems like he had to spend a lot of time and money to just get these % hes gotten after close to a decade.
