Howard Lederer Gets Even More Rich, Wins Aussie Millions $100k Buy-In

Howardlederer100000aussiemillionsAs [one of] the brains behind the launch of Full Tilt Poker, Howard Lederer doesn't exactly *need* the money. However, Howard *has* the money. And if you play poker and have the money, a must event every year in the Aussie Millions $100k buy-in.

Last year Erick Lindgren took it down, banking a cool mil. This year, Edog returned, along with the usual suspect (Phil Ivey, Erik Seidel, Tony G, Gus Hansen, the aforementioned Lederer, and Chris "Jesus" Ferguson), as well as online superstars Michael 'Timex' McDonald, Tom 'durrr' Dwan, and Jeff 'ActionJeff' Garza.

Twenty-five players entered (last year only 18 did), creating a first prize of $1.25M. 2007 winner Erick Lindgren took the chip lead to the final table, but bubbled in sixth place when his flopped trip kings lost to a turned flush. Howard Lederer then began his pragmatic ascension to the chip lead, eventually beating Mark Teltscher for the $1.2M win.

After the victory, Lederer said [probably to himself]: "I can't wait to add this one-point-two-five mil to the piles of other one-point-two-five-mils that I'll never spend in my lifetime."
