Poker Pro Lindgren Folds Again as Creditors Up the Ante

Updated on

Erick Lindgren, a professional poker player who made millions in competitions including the World Series of Poker, filed for bankruptcy protection for the second time in three years.

The PokerStars online gambling service sued Lindgren after he failed to return a $2 million payment erroneously deposited into his account by its Full Tilt Poker unit. Lindgren also didn’t repay a $531,807 loan, according to papers filed in January in federal court in Nevada. PokerStars in March asked the court to enter a judgment against Lindgren for $2.5 million.
