If you follow poker at all - or at least some of the major news in the poker world - you've likely heard about the "apology" issued by former Full Tilt Poker bigwig *Howard Lederer*. If you haven't heard, head over to FullContactPoker. com and check out Daniel Negreanu's latest blog.   Negreanu chose to be the vehicle through which Lederer issued his apology for his poor oversight of Full Tilt's financial management, and when I first heard this from a third-party source I thought it was a troll by Negreanu.

Every year at the WSOP Main Event, the question is always asked whether you would rather have the money or the WSOP bracelet. Until recent years, the answer was largely "I want the bracelet.
