Juanda Fires Back, Says $5.4m Stolen from Seidel

John Juanda
Juanda: Very different version of things.

After six parts and three hours of one-sided commentary from Howard Lederer, at least one Full Tilt shareholder has fired back with a different take on at least some events.

Taken to task in particular in Parts 1 and 6 of the Lederer Files interview, former Full Tilt pro and owner John Juanda made it clear through a series of tweets that Lederer is not giving an entirely accurate picture of the internal goings on at Full Tilt.

Calling Juanda out for not supporting Full Tilt CEO Ray Bitar, not paying back his own loan from the company and for “refusing” to sign the impending deal with PokerStars, Lederer also claimed Juanda was the “second-largest shareholder” in the company.

Not only does Juanda suggest Lederer was incorrect or misleading in his assessment of several situations, he also accuses Full Tilt management of stealing $5.4 million from Erik Seidel.

Juanda's series of tweets responding to the Lederer Files (through Part 6) in chronological order below:

Juanda is currently in Cannes, France for the 2012 World Series of Poker Europe and has yet to respond in a more formal capacity. Follow him on Twitter here.
