Jose "Girah" Macedo admits to scamming
Felt obligated to share this news as not everyone here reads that other poker forum
, plus, not too long ago I linked one of his videos.
For those who don't know, this kid, Jose Macedo, arose as a "Portuguese Poker Prodigy," who apparently lived the dream of turning $30 into $2 million or something as a 16-18-year-old wiz kid.
He got sponsorships and some big-name pros vouched for him, including DogisHead and Jungleman12. DIH and JM were planning on moving to Portugal
to live with him.
Now it's come out that Girah had started a Skype/coaching group for HSNL players. He would sweat their sessions in real time, and apparently encouraged them to play someone named Sauron1989. But he was superusing and Sauron1989 took his students for around $30K.
