TOP POKER PROS RESIGN FROM P.P.A.
 
Lederer, Ferguson distancing themselves in the wake of Black Friday?
 
The Poker Players Alliance online poker advocacy group has announced the resignation of two professional player board members, Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson, both of whose names have been linked in reports on Full Tilt Poker.
 
Full Tilt is one of the three major online poker sites impacted by the US Justice Department's Black Friday indictments of April 15th.
 
PPA spokesman Rich Muny used the twoplustwo poker message board to inform the poker community that the two American-based aces had stepped down from the board of directors of the Alliance.
 
According to Muny, the Board was informed last week.
