Dane Cook and Erick Lindgren Get Into Shouting Match

poker player erick lindgren - full tilt poker A rumor started making the rounds a few days ago, that had Erick Lindgren getting into a dispute with Dane Cook.

Erick Lindgren is a well-known poker player and member of "Team Full Tilt".

Dane Cook is a comedian who has appeared in movies such as "Employee of the Month" and "Good Luck Chuck".

Anyways, apparently Erick Lindgren and some of his buddies decided to check out Dane Cook at one of his comedy shows.

After 10-15 minutes, Lindgren and company decided that Cook wasn't very funny, so they decided to leave. They didn't want to make a big deal out of it, so they tried to exit as quietly as they could.

At this point, Cook noticed that they were leaving the venue and screamed "Where the hell are you all going?"

Lindgren responded that they were going to go down the street to try and find a funny comedian to watch.

Cook asked the group to "walk back out that door to the unemployment line". At this point, Lindgren mentioned that he is in fact unemployed, and that he makes more money than Cook does.

Security had intervened at this point, and were aggressively escorting Lindgren and his friends out of the building.

Lindgren later confirmed on Full Tilt Poker that this did in fact take place, and that he had gotten into a verbal confrontation with Dane Cook.

This incident led to a discussion online of who in fact had more money, Dane Cook or Erick Lindgren.

Dane Cook has appeared in a number of movies, has released some platinum-selling comedy albums and tours the country doing comedy shows. He is certainly a millionaire and has plenty of money (well, if you include the money that was apparently stolen from him by his half-brother).

Erick Lindgren was one of the original investors/stakeholders in Full Tilt Poker, backs many successful cash game and tournament players, and has over $7 million dollars in lifetime tournament winnings. I've also heard from multiple sources that Lindgren is very smart with his money, and has many business interests.

Just based on his stake in Full Tilt Poker alone, Erick Lindgren easily wins this net worth battle.
