Two Pros resign from Poker Players AllianceThe Poker Players Alliance, known as the PPA, is a nonprofit group that works to ensure poker is available in all forms in the United States. The PPA has thousands of members created of players who play online as well as offline. There are many big name poker players that are associated with the PPA, some of which are even on the board of the PPA. It was recently announced that two pros who are board members have now resigned.
Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer, both Full Tilt Poker team members, have resigned as board members of the PPA. It is believed that the two stepped down from their positions due to the indictments placed on Full Tilt Poker on Black Friday.
Both pros are heavily involved in Full Tilt Poker. Lederer has been a consultant for Pocket Kings which is the parent company of Full Tilt for some time now and Ferguson helped design the site as well as being involved from the start.
Now with the pros resignation from the PPA, they have been removed from the PPA Website. It will hurt to not have the two poker pros faces in support of the PPA’s actions but it does make sense to distance themselves from the group as they could hinder any progress the PPA may make due to their connection with Full Tilt.
Hopefully the online gambling industry will start to get better for players. Poker players can visit the PPA website today to find out what they can do to support poker. The PPA site has a great deal of information listed where players can find out about poker legislation in the works as well as information on how to help in the process.
