- sauron1989 proceeded to gain over 30k from Girah's buddies
- sauron1989 and Girah's Skype frequently went online and offline at the same time
- after Mossboss starts to investigate, Girah confesses and promises to pay back the money scammed plus a compensation of 30k per player

GIRAH'S APOLOGY POST

IVVAEN POSTS
- Girah "did not feel bad and confess", "he lied and denied, lied and denied and lied and denied some more."
- Girah said on Skype that they should not out him because they should "think about [my] rep", i.e., they shouldn't have outted him because his sponsors would drop him

- "Haseeb and I have nothing to do with Jose's dumbass actions"
- didn't like the way Girah was building hype for himself
- Girah is not his protege, he just coached him

Cliffs of Haseeb Qureshi/DogIsHead/Internet Pokers Blog Respond:
(courtesy of PokerStrategy.com)
  • Girah came to Qureshi some time last year to seek advice and direction with his poker career. Qureshi was impressed by Girah's work ethic and understanding of the game. Haseeb is adamant that Girah was the real deal, stating: "Any and all conspiracy theories of Jose being completely invented as a puppet account are not only utterly false, but completely f****** ridiculous on many levels".
  • As well as giving him poker tips, Qureshi began to work as Girah's unofficial agent. Girah became obsessed with marketing himself positively, and Qureshi agreed to edit some of Girah's blogs and press releases.
  • Knowing that Jose "was crushing 6-max with a huge winrate" after receiving details from Girah's Hold'em Manager, Qureshi and Jungleman agreed to stake Girah for the nosebleeds. They strenuously deny having used Jose's account to play poker on.
  • Qureshi takes responsibility for Girah being disqualified from the Lock Poker Challenge, describing how he logged on Jose's account to play a couple of sessions of $25/$50 Pot-Limit Omaha following the turmoil of Black Friday. Qureshi also admits that Girah used his "Toshisan" account on iPoker.
  • Upon hearing about the cheating allegations, Qureshi notes how Girah told him an elaborate lie about his "rich fish friend". When faced with the strong evidence presented by twoplustwo users, which included dubious hands, Girah finally confessed to cheating using the accounts "Dollarman" and "Sauron1989".
  • Qureshi admits he had an emotional attachment to Girah, and that he was initially reluctant for news of the scam to go public because he had Jose's staking money tied up in Lock Poker.
  • Like the rest of us, Qureshi has no idea why Girah conducted the scam.

José’s strategy contributions to this group were exceptional, and many top players were very impressed. Early in July, José created a second group which he said was for the best players to further discuss strategy, review each others videos and do some live sweats, to discuss hands just after they had happened. José and everyone elses’ strategy discussion continued to be very good and in early July, somewhere around the 10th, Joséwatched 2p2 poster ImFromSweden whilst he played a session. During this session IFS played sauron1989 HU on iPoker. IFS lost just over $10,000 in 70 hands of $10/$20 but both of them typed into the skype chat group that they thought that this sauron1989 was very bad. About 10 days later, José offered to watch me whilst I played a session on iPoker. Thinking that this was a good opportunity for me to have my play reviewed by a top player, I agreed and he watched my session start out as a 6max session but soon I had sat with sauron1989 on an empty 6max table, after José had told me that this guy was bad and spewy and proceeded to lose a total of $21,900 to sauron1989 over the course of 2 matches at $25/$50. I felt like something was wrong during the matches, not a feeling I can explain, but it just didn’t feel like any other HU match I’ve played and I got suspicious.

After reviewing the skype chat logs, it became fairly clear that José was massively pushing this sauron1989 to anybody who had iPoker funds, saying that he was very bad and that everyone should play him (and let him watch when they did). I voiced my concerns to TooCuriousso1 and we proceeded to work hard to dig up evidence to prove this. Lots of circumstantial evidence was available; José’s chat logs were extremely suspect, where he would push players to play sauron1989 despite not seeming to play him himself. We soon witnessed that whenever José would disconnect from skype, sauron1989 would sign out of the ipoker lobby and would sign back in when José reconnected to skype. This happened 3 times in 20 minutes and all 3 times both José’s skype and sauron logged out and in at the same time. During our attempts to find more evidence, it became clear that José was also operating under the username of dollarman223 on the Merge network. He scammed TooCuriousso1 for $900 and appeared to be setting up another member of the group for a further scam at $50/$100, which we anticipated would be his biggest scam. Once we voiced our concerns to the rest of the group it became apparent that José was setting up quite a few of them for a scam.

Obviously it was naiive and stupid of me and of the others to allow José to watch our screen whilst we played high stakes, but based on a few months of internet friendship and the great strategy José posted, we believed he was entirely trustworthy (despite the scepticism voiced in José’s NVG thread).

To José’s credit, before we had fully conclusive proof, though our suspicions were becoming apparent, he confessed what he had done, and promised to pay us back all of the money plus was adamant that he would pay compensation for the time that we had been forced to put in to unearth the cheating. We have been promised reimbursement for the money stolen by Jose while superusing. Once I receive the funds, I will then send IFS and TC what they are owed.

We have co-ordinated this with José to allow him to write his statement in here for all to read. His statement will be posted below.

edit: regarding the confession, we received a full admission of guilt at a point at which it was more or less apparent that we already knew we had been cheated.

A while ago, I did something stupid. A friend of mine, who I introduced to poker, made a suggestion to me which was, I'm not going to sugar coat it, cheating. I had introduced this friend to poker and he was losing money, badly. He asked to play some of my poker friends and said why don't you sweat them and we'll see their hands. I don't know why I agreed. I don't know why I did it. I guess it was a mixture of guilt and stupidity and feeling ****ty for getting him involved in something which seemed to be bad for him.

This went on for a short while but I felt so bad, I had to say something. I confessed. I told the guys involved what I had done, I told my friends and the people who I respect and who respected me.

I told my Mum, confessed everything to her. I could see the disappointment moving across her face as she told me she was not proud of me despite all my success in poker; she was not proud of her son. She said how she hadn't raised me this way and what had poker done to me. Thats when it hit me, how badly I had let people down. I felt ashamed, I had no explanation; explanations don't cut it in situations like this and often come across as excuses.

There is a quote on the wall in my school which I always see as I pass the nurse's office. It says that the real mistake is not tripping up, but staying down. I thought of that and that's why I'm writing this.

I'm holding my hands up and taking whatever consequences come. I realise the severity of this, but I also realise that I have to take responsibility for my actions and so I'm paying back everyone involved and in addition paying them compensation of $30,000. I've also told my sponsor etc and whatever happens there I will take the consequences too. They have been really amazing to me and I've enjoyed every minute of working with them. Representing Lock and being part of their amazing team, witnessing the incredible growth, was a pleasure and an honor.

I'm young, I made a mistake and I hope that this doesn't define me; I hope that how I deal with this and move forward is the thing that does. And people will say I have no excuse and I know and understand that. I agree. I just want to let everyone know, I'm sorry. I apologise to the guys who lost their money, the people who I love and care about and I have disappointed and the guys in the poker world who have supported me for letting them down. I wish Ish I had something to say to you all, to say to my parents and my friends and all of those who thought I could do no wrong.

Again I'm really sorry.

Jose offered me large sums of money for private coaching which i refused in order to talk strat/general bull**** over skype for free. I have repeatedly vouched for him on 2p2 as well.

Kjemmy brought these suspicions to my attention which I dismissed as circumstantial (until IP addresses were confirmed or Jose confessed) because I felt that the scam was so flagrantly unethical and poorly conceived that I couldn't imagine Jose or anyone rational doing it. That same day, Jose advised me on skype chat to put money on ipoker and play "this aggrofish sauron1989 at 50/100" and I still was not convinced he was scamming.

I suppose the only constructive thing that can come from writing this post is that I want to advise other poker players to be extremely, extremely wary of others' intentions, especially when so many interactions occur online. There are many incredibly honest people in poker who have fostered a climate where deals totaling thousands or millions of dollars are brokered on people's word alone, usually without incident. We have to both be more careful about trusting other people these days and we also have to make sure people who behave like Jose are barred from the poker community by any non-violent means possible.

Hey,

I'm maxkatz1 on ipoker and read the whole story today. Basically I had done some investigating after loosing to sauon1989 and Jose sweating me 3days in a row and was gonna post sth similiar. He also said sth about a nick on ongame and i kinda suspect its also one of his scam accounts.

This is so immensely false and infuriating. Jose did not feel bad and confess. We had gathered lots of evidence and he caught wind of it. He lied and denied , lied and denied and lied and denied some more. This cant be stated enough. He used all sorts of arguments about how well we know him, how much strat he has posted, “what would I gain?”, “youre my friends” etc. He absolutely tried to deny this for as long as he could and did NOT come clean out of guilt like he claims here. FU Jose you scum, I don’t ever wanna hear about you or see your face ever again. I hope you quit poker and never make a cent from it ever again. SCUM!

Furthermore, from Jose’s conversations about this on Skype he is NOT as sorry about this as he proclaims. He even had the balls to say this last night when we informed him we were going public asap:

[01:25:17] josé maria macedo: stop thinking so much about your reps
[01:25:20] josé maria macedo: and think about mine
[01:25:22] josé maria macedo: for one second

Once again, are you ****ing kidding me????? This kid does not grasp what he has done.

Secondly, this friend story has to be a load of crap. For example, Jose claimed on Skype that Merge wouldn’t detect the cheating by looking at IPs as his friend was online by the use of a mobile internet 3g pen. Why, then, did Sauron disconnect at the same time as Jose, who was on his normal internet connection?

Now, when it comes to the sweating. The point of it was to rail in real time and comment after. Personally, I never got sweated by anyone, but I sweated Jose playing a random fish one time. I did comment in real time on hands and I acknowledge that this is wrong and I should not have done it. It was not my intention when talking about sweating in the first place, and I consider it a mistake and will never do it again. This was the only time I have been involved in any type of sweating as long as I have played poker. From talks with the other guys it seems like they all merely sweated and that any real time communication was extremely limited. I believe this.

I leave you with this gem from the Portuguese Russ Hamilton who is so so sorry for what he has done:

[16:00:16] josé maria macedo: i assume you all know this
[16:00:24] josé maria macedo: but if it goes public, both mysponsors are dropping me
[16:02:45] XXXXX: yeah they're aware
[16:03:16] josé maria macedo: ah, really?
[16:03:20] josé maria macedo: damn
[16:05:28] josé maria macedo: theyreally know that both sponsors will drop me?
[16:05:35] josé maria macedo: and still want to?

On 28th of June I contacted Yoan Gaidov from hand4hand.net about coaching with Jose Maria Machedo, the so called portuguese poker prodigy. He gave me his Skype info and I added him. He said that he would talk with Jose and forward my information to him. He told me there was a waiting list of like 50 players.
On 29th of June he gave me Joses Skype info and I added him. From that day I would try to contact Jose about coaching. He would ignore me first but then after like 2 weeks we finally scheduled a session. I filled out his questionnaire and was good to go. He wouldnt show up to the first session and also missed the 2nd one we scheduled making up excuses. Then he apologized and said he would make it up by coaching me for free for 2 sessions.
On 07/17 we had finally our first session where we talked about some theory. The session was nothing special and I didn,t get the impression that he is as awesome as everyone seems to think he is. He basically send me the links to the hands he posted on 2p2 (also the hands he made his first video for pokerstrategy) and talked about them. He told me to prepare some conceptual hands and send me to him. I would do that but he never really analyzed them. He would then ignore me again for some days and when our next session was due he delayed it during to having so much stress because of his first video being released.
At this time I was playing almost only on pokerstars and partypoker. On 07/28 I would started playing on ipoker on my old account (maxkatz1) I haven't played there for a while. Jose knew my name there since he asked me on 07/17 about it and. All of a sudden Jose started to show an unreal amount of interest to sweating me. After bascially ignoring me for over 3 weeks and hardly doing anything that can be considered coaching he would suggest to sweat me up to 3-4 times a day starting on 07/31. I played up to 9 tables of 6 max on ipoker.

Basically he wanted me to play ongame or ipoker during our sweatsessions. He told me his nick on ipoker is toshisan. Pretty strange if you look it up on ptr - plays low - midstakes hu.
He told me that his ongame account was frozen and that he thinks that games on ongame are great so I should play there and asked me about what my nick there is.
Ok so now the fun part begins. After starting the sweatsession a guy named sauron1989 would sit with me at every table he could at 10-20. He would make some garbage plays (coldcall crap pf v me - make some stupid bluff) then type that he is tilted in chat and ask me to move up in stakes).
Jose told me that he played him for over 3k hands and that he thinks that sauron is a huge fish. He told me he lost like 15k to him at 25-50 but will play him again since hes got really good reads on him. He also encouraged me to start 10-20 games with sauron. I lost about 15 k to sauron on the 3 days where Jose did sweat me.
He would spazz here and there but other than that he was playing in god mode - calling every single bluff of mine. Jose tried to encourage me to play sauron hu and also asked why I won't play him at 25-50.
After sking him several times he finally agreed that I can sweat him and he played about 45 minutes on merge on his girah account. Before and after the session he was asking me again and again if he can sweat me. He was never really interested in analyzing any hands. I got suspicious after getting crushed by sauron 3 days in a row and asked a friend of mine (mdma) about his opinion. He told me that he has read some interesting stuff on a swedish pokerforum a while ago. Basically Jose asked an ipoker reg to sweat him when he played a fish hu. During that session he lost 8 buins or so on on 10-20. Guess to whom he lost? Sauron 1989!
Toshisan has not a single hand played v Sauron1989 according to ptr. Jose asked me to play Sauron from my account since hes getting no action from him. He asked me if he can sit in 4 handed with Sauron1989, me and geeforce1. I said sure but he wouldn't. Then telling me that his ipoker account is blocked cause Hasseeb logged in.
So it all looks pretty strange. First he ignores me and doesn't wann do any coaching. As soon as he sees me playing on ipoker he can't get enough of sweating me. As soon as I sit at ipoker Sauron sits at very table of mine at 10-20 with position and plays in godmode. His ongame account is blocked. His ipoker account is blocked. His moneybookers deposit limit is reached so he cant make a new account and deposit.

At the skype he instantly asks me if I play at ipoker and tells me that there is a big fish playing 25/50 50/100 (haven't seen any big fish there and there is not much 25/50+ games going on at ipoker anyway).

I had to leave and haven't talk with him since but for some reason I have a feeling that the big fish playing at ipoker was gonna be sauron1989......

I still don't really understand why he not only scammed people in one of the scummiest ways possible, but also decided to risk his whole career for a seemingly small amount... Clearly I made a mistake in trusting him, and now question our relationship as a whole.

Haseeb and I are in Europe still trying to get settled in to play online once again, we have talked about the situation and we can't abide by what he did, so we can't live with him in Portugal and I can no longer consider him my student.

Again this is all really ridiculous, I and the high stakes players who supported him in the past never would have imagined he would do this. GL to all those who got scammed.

No one ever imagined he could do something like this, and honestly I still have difficulty understanding his motives. We've been traveling to Europe (Jungle and I have been in Gibraltar for the last few days) and as such, I had to be very brief, with having to wade through all of the commotion in what's happened from every end. Since Jungle and I decided that we no longer can be with Jose after the way he's betrayed our trust, we have changed our plans from Portugal and are now trying to sort out another place to live within Europe. This whole situation is a huge cluster**** to say the least.

Right now it's very difficult for me to spend a lot of time on 2p2, but as I've heard that the rumors and speculation are running rampant, I will say this and I will say it as emphatically and clearly as I can. None of us who supported Jose had any idea about any of this. None of us. We supported Jose and believed in him singlemindedly, I will admit that. I personally had a very strong relationship with the kid. I don't know why, but none of us who believed in him ever imagined he had it in him to be so greedy and dishonest to do something like this. Clearly, we were wrong, and as was I to place our faith in him. What he did was really ****ed up and inexcusable. I may be able to write more once Jungle and I secure a place to live and lay our heads, but for the moment we are very all over the place. But for everyone who thinks that there is some huge conspiracy or that Jose is a puppet for some high stakes scamming ring - get a ****ing grip, ffs.

Suffice it to say, the OP speaks for itself. I wish the best to all of the victims in dealing with this.

There are a lot of questionable actions that you can excuse as "oh I didn't really think about it, but yeah now that you mention it, it's kind of messed up [eg multiaccounting back in the day when it was never discussed critically]" or "there are arguments on both sides [eg HUDs, live coaching, etc]" but this is not excusable in any way. The complete depravity required to do something like this is just shocking. He should go to jail, nobody should believe a word he says b/c at this point he's got nothing to lose by lying and trying his hardest to make himself look good, and the poker community needs to completely shun him. There are lots of situations in which somebody should get a second chance for a youthful or thoughtless mistake. This isn't one of them.

2) Everybody trying to blame Sauce/Jungle/Haseeb is crazy here. Regardless of whether past rumors wrt the Big 3 using Jose's account are true (I didn't fully read the thread, have no opinion on the subject, etc.), nothing that anybody suspected these three of at all relates to this scamming situation. Taking previous speculation and conspiracy theorizing and using it as evidence of guilt in one setting, and then presuming that guilt and trying to use it as evidence of guilt regarding an entirely unrelated issue is insane. It's like hearing a rumor durrrr and Ivey collude, assuming they collude, and then blaming durrrr for the recent NoahSD article about Ivey.

The most you could say is that they made a bad judgment call vouching for this guy and this helped make him famous. The only problem with that is that there's no way to see something like this coming and when you vouch for people on the internet it's never "I did a thorough background search and subjected him to numerous tests to see if he had hidden sociopathic behavioral traits," the most you can ever vouch for somebody you're not IRL friends with is "I can vouch his story checks out and that he's been honest and forthright with me in the past." Basically, they talked to a guy who obviously knew his poker stuff and who befriended them on the internet, and expecting them to somehow be responsible for people falling for his scam reads way too much into what vouching actually means.

As to how Jose got my skype name I have no idea- at the time it was simply Ben Sulsky or something similar so it really wouldn't be that hard (it has since been changed btw). Jose just happens to have been the only person to contact me in this way and not come off sounding like a stalker. My motivations were simple: I like talking poker and was impressed that this 17 year old kid was on track to crush, so I tried to help him out a little. Believe it or not this actually happens, people (still) help each other for free ...

As far as coaching Jose all I did was answer his HH and theory questions on skype chat. I still don't feel comfortable charging some sick $/hr number for my time, I prefer to just crush at the tables where there's no possibility for bull****. (the expert insight coaching $$ go to charity btw)

Kjemmy came to me with this news a few days before it was posted on 2p2 as Jose had touted his relationship to me for various purposes and Kjemmy figured I could look over the evidence with an eye to defending Jose. I checked out the chatlogs and Sauron1989's suspicious log in history as presented to me by Kjemmy. I concluded that the evidence was circumstantial and that Kjemmy should contact the sites in order to get the IP info for the Sauron account as well as Girah's info. If they matched up then the evidence would be clear cut and Kjemmy could confront Jose. In the next few days Kjemmy et all confronted Jose and he confessed, so that was that.

As far as me being the "whale at the end of the line" or whatever, I have no idea what Jose's intentions were. I do know he suggested to me to get money on ipoker to play "a huge aggrofish named Sauron1989." To be fair, I had said to Jose that I was considering getting money on ipoker and only then when I was basically walking into the trap did Jose seem to get the idea to scam me. He didn't pressure me or maneuver me into getting scammed in the way that he did to the OPs.

Anyways, I have absolutely no reason to defend my actions or my intentions in this thread. I have since blocked Jose and ceased all contact with him, of which there was very little in the first place and nothing outside of internet bull****.

If it isn't accurate then people can question my discretion in vouching for someone, but that's about it.

Here's an example of a post I made recently vouching for someone: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...46&postcount=3

In this post the only claim I make is that I a) did in fact play the person at mid/high stakes, b) in my opinion they played well, c) I bought a coaching package from this person I was satisfied with and d) In my informed opinion I think the person is a strong player and coach.

If somehow (and I have not even the most remote reason to think this, there is nothing to read between the lines here) this person had fabricated his results in order to sell coaching, my only culpability is that I was taken in by him enough to make the above claims b,c and d. Other people on the forums might then justifiably question my reputation as an expert on poker.

The same sort of thing happened with Jose. I was satisfied that he had a sharp take on poker theory and therefore saw no reason to be particularly skeptical of his results. Since I thought he was a large winner I in turn saw no reason why he would engage in cheating as despicable as this for such a comparatively small amount of money. For those of you who watched his video, I think it seems quite credible that Jose has a sharp mind for poker theory and you all might understand my mistake. Others of you might doubt my supposedly expert opinion in the future, which is totally OK with me and justified.

It would be dishonest for me to be recommending Jose in a coaching thread if I expected to get any cut of the profits or had any vested material interest in Jose's coaching success. In the actual case of Jose, all that I attested to was his reality (the proof of which were my repeated chats with him on skype which started long before the 2p2 thread(s)) and that in my expert opinion it was plausible he had put up the impressive results he posted, and that I thought this was plausible because he seemed to have a sharp poker mind.

Hope that clears things up,

Ben

Girah invites me to a skype strategy group. This was probably a 4-6 weeks after black friday. During this time, I was playing very little poker and was almost non-existent in the group. I didn't participate in much strategy discussions nor any sweat sessions.

At some point, I log in and Girah and Toocurious are talking about a fish named dollarman223. TooCurious mentions that this fish plays terribly preflop but seems to 'own' him postflop and that he plays 25-50+. Girah pushes me to play dollarman. TooCurious is horrible at poker, so I decide to play dollarman. We play a short session of 1 table of 25-50 where I end up winning. During this time Girah is messaging me on skype but not viewing my screen. Dollarman leaves only to return in a short while. We begin playing another session during which Girah presses me very hard to allow him to 'sweat' me via teamviwer. Reluctantly, I agree.

I want to stress that this is the first and last time I have allowed anyone to 'sweat' me at my regular stakes. I have allowed students to watch me play much lower stakes and ask questions later - but that is where my 'sweating' experience ends.


Dollarman and I play another short session, this time with Girah watching via TV. I run numerous suicide bluffs, all of which work and end up winning about 4k overall. Dollarman becomes 'tilted' and asks to play 50-100 deep. I decline. He asks to play at a different time and we exchange e-mails. Over the next 2 weeks, dollarman e-mails me several times asking to play 2 tables of 50-100 deep. Over the same time period, Jose becomes super insistent that I play dollarman and allow him to TV. It becomes almost an obsession for him. He is also insistent that TooCurious play dollarman and allow him to TV and that the European guys in the group who play on ipoker play sauron.

This goes on until toocurious messages me and says he believes that Girah is cheating. It is decided that we contact ipoker and merge to try and collect some hard evidence and look for links between Girah and dollarman. One of the guys ends up contacting Sauce and Dogishead.

While we waited for responses, one or more of the group members pressed Girah for information. I was not involved in any of the discussions with Girah, as I have had very little contact with him since TooCurious brought up these allegations but I did read through the chat transcripts that were posted. It was clear that Girah knew that he was caught as he had come up with a story that his 'real life frined' super used him. This story was sent to at least 3 people in the group, myself included. Following this he admitted to ToOCurious that dollarman and sauron are the same person and that it is his rich friend from school and that "sometimes" he played at his house. A bunch of other BS followed.

The next day(?) Dogishead enters our skype chat and says that Girah confessed to him that this cheating took place. Prior to this, Girah did not confess to me nor anyone else within the group as far as I know. In any case, Dog says he will get back the money of those who lost it. In fact, he gave his word that if Jose didn't pay then he and Jungleman would. He then asks if we are going to go public with this and mentions that it's up to us, but he would rather it didn't go public. He mentions that they were going to go live with him...but if this gets out then they can't do that anymore...implying that if this wasn't outed they would still live together(?). He continues by taking on the role of big brother and almost defending Girah by saying that he's young and stupid and that while what he did was scummy, he doesn't think that he's a bad person and a whole bunch of other comments that rubbed me the wrong way.

During these conversations, Dog admitted that both he and Jungleman back Girah for highstakes games. This leads me to believe that either Dog or Jungleman were the mysterious backer who logged in to play PLO during the Lock Challenge. Jose also mentioned that one of the ipoker accounts he uses is in Dog's name. To quote Dog "draw your own conclusions".

Dog was very insistent that we hold off on making any posts before he had a chance to deal with this situation as both Jungle and him had "strong ties" to Jose. He also wanted us to wait and "confront" Jose and let him "explain himself" and other completely asinine kindergarten BS.


It became apparent (at least to me) that the only thing Dog cared about was his reputation, not about what his "very close" friend did, not about the people who were cheated - only that he's not portrayed in any way that could damage him. He confirmed this yesterday when, upon learning that all of the above would be posted, came into the skype group and said that if this was mentioned, "there is NO way [they] can agree to bank transfer the money".

According to Dog, in terms of reimbursement, Jungleman was going to bank wire funds to Moss who would distribute them to those who were cheated. I don't know if this is still the plan or if this has happened yet since I am not owed. It is a complete mess and it is possible that Girah may be repaying the funds via Lock.

More than that I don't know, unfortunately.

This ended up not happening - Jose is sending the entire amount to me on Merge - and there was no 'bribe' from DIH and Jungle's side to keep their names out of this.

The reason we kept their names out was because we werent completely sure how deep it went, and we didn't want to cause a huge ****storm if we were wrong. After reading more into it, Jay decided to go ahead and post all of the convos and what we had discussed in the skype chat. The rest you can read yourselves in Jay's post; Jungle and DIH have backed Jose, apparently Jose's ipoker account is in Haseeb's name, etc etc.

For the record, Jose Macedo blantantly stole from his friends and students. The number may be more than what he claims. To my knowledge.....

To my knowledge Daniel Cates and Haseeb Qureshi had 0 knowledge of his transgressions while promoting him and backing him. However, they....

have at the very least used accounts, mostly being Jose using the 'Toshisan' account which is Haseeb's. I would bet a lot that HQ/DC........

didn't go past account sharing which is something that should be frowned upon and shouldn't be condoned, but not blatantly cheating.

I would wager a lot that DC/HQ are 100% people of utmost integrity. HQ lost over $250k to me in a running bet and paid me every dollar.

Later in Gibraltar, Haseeb talks with Jose and the victims and actually suspects Jose is scamming based on how he is responding, and gets a confession out of him. Incoming ****storm... Haseeb and I know a bunch of crazy **** is about to go down on 2+2 and, given our public relationship withJose, want to basically stay out of Jose's crucifixion (well so much for that). Hence the chat logs trying to convince the victimsnot to talk about us... As for the payment we owed Jose money and would rather pay the victims than give Jose the money because it seems more fair. Once again, Haseeb and I have nothing to do with Jose's dumbass actions.


On another note, I didn't like the way Jose seemed to like to build hype for himself: challenging durrrr in the durrrr challenge, taking the isildur challenge, offering to play anyone giving 1bb back at 200/400--basically suggesting he's better than he was in ways that he could not back up. I've always been a proponent of the idea that respect should follow from being worthy of respect, not vice versa--something that Jose's actions contradicted. Lastly it's a bit exaggerated to say he was my protege, indeed I did coach him but for maybe a couple of sessions at best in addition to answering questions. Many others are my protege moreso according to the time I've given them.

For his actions, Jose should burn on his own. I am not involved in this ****storm. Also, Haseeb will be commenting shortly/writing a blog post shortly to explain everything.

Re: Cliff notes of the 'Portuguese Poker Prodigy' Jose "Girah" Macedo scam

Noah was putting together cliff notes and is going to be closing original thread following the posting of chat logs between jose and victims prior to sweating session. But this is well done 3X.

Jnyc's post implicating Haseeb in an effort to cover-up or atleast minimize exposure of scam has been one of the most significant. This post was verified by matt whom is the op of original thread MossBoss

No one really knows or cares. The fact of the matter is he wasn't the player he claimed to be and that's all that really matters.

Re: Cliff notes of the 'Portuguese Poker Prodigy' Jose "Girah" Macedo scam

Thanks for your work, Noah and OP.

All interested parties who don't want to read the 1K+ posts of the other thread will now be up to speed.

Obviously information still needed includes:

Chat logs that MossBoss is working on as we speak.

Answers from JM/DIH regarding their relationship with Girah, why one or both of them would have been willing to cover losses from the scam, why they appear to rescind that offer if the scam is made public.


I really have almost no faith in online poker right now. There are probably still more honest people than scums, but Jesus, figuring out who is which is exhausting.

Re: Cliff notes of the 'Portuguese Poker Prodigy' Jose "Girah" Macedo scam

This thread should be in the cliffs since it's where this started: Portugese prodigy wins over 2 mill on euro sites. LF more info!

And this quote in that thread is where DIH started this scam:

I know this kid and have been talking to him for a while. His name is José, he approached me a while back for coaching (I'm not the aforementioned coach in this thread). He seemed extremely intelligent and hardworking. He told me that he studied poker 3 hours a day every day, just reviewing hands and breaking down his opponents. He said that in a matter of six months from when he started poker, he had gone from a micro stakes bankroll to becoming one of the biggest winners at 5/10-10/20 6-max and was trying to break his way into the 25/50 games. Now, in 2006 or 2005 you heard those kinds of stories often enough... but in 2010, that's an unbelievable progression up the stakes. And as if that weren't amazing enough, on top of all that - he was 17 years old.

I've talked to José quite a bit and have given him a lot of advice on various things, but since the very first moment I met this him, I knew he was a prodigy. I remember Sauce saying that he was probably on the road to becoming one of the strongest players in poker. AFAIK, he's approached both Sauce and Jungleman for coaching, and has tremendous knowledge and dedication to the game. Right now on American sites he's pretty unknown, but this kid has just turned 18 and is now positioned to take a serious run at the top of the poker world.

It's a pretty ****ing crazy story. I look forward to seeing what this guy can do with his career.

Re: Cliff notes of the 'Portuguese Poker Prodigy' Jose "Girah" Macedo scam

this is why i lol so hard at the micro sweat sessions sticky. 2p2 promoting strangers sweating strangers. wonder how many scammers use that place for feeding.

i dont understand why he would do this for such a small amount of money. hes better off being asked to get staked and then chipdumping to a friend.

i think the lesson is to not trust people more than you have to. railing through skype/teamviewer is only one possible way people can see your hole cards obviously. there is something called "malware". look it up. there are stickies in all the strategy forums outlining on how to secure your computer against malware. even so, letting somebody unaccomponied next to your computer who you dont trust is asking for trouble. they can install malware which cant be detected.

Decent cliffs, but missing a whole bunch of the early on stuff.

It's obvious that PPP's persona was "launched" in a systematic manner. Why? (we know at least partial answer is to scam). Who else helped launched this persona, and why? The answer is the subject of a furious debate for months, and now that sinister intentions have surfaced, can't help but wonder if the "help" also had sinister reasons/involvement.

At this point, Haseeb is at the very least guilty of trying to cover up the whole situation.

Apparently some people think that's perfectly fine since he was trying to protect his rep; I just don't understand that attitude.
I think both JM and Haseeb and anyone who knew Girah for what he was had a responsibility to immediately come forward with the truth.
It's completely unacceptable that Haseeb was trying to cover that **** up and imo that makes him a scumbag.

If it weren't for JnyC coming forward, we might've never known that about Haseeb since other HS players from the skype ring were just crossing their fingers that they'd get their money back.

@SGT RJ

Well.. You could just sit yourself up in a position where you don't allow other people to watch your holecards while playing HU, and therefore you not having to worry whos a scumbag and whos not.

Jesus, how ****ing naive is it possible to be? Dont be such a dramaqueen. People have scammed, killed, murdererd, raped and stole for 100 000 years, its not like its new to human kind.

Re: Cliff notes of the 'Portuguese Poker Prodigy' Jose "Girah" Macedo scam

This is ridiculously long and because I don't want to spend 5 hours trawling through this and putting in the necessary/taking out the unnecessary, I have included it all. If someone wants to go through it all and include the stuff that seems most relevant in another post, feel free. Hopefully it gives you some indication of what has gone on though.

I apologise also if any personal information is in there, I just haven't checked it thoroughly since it's taken ****ing long to compile anyway. Apologies also if I have actually missed anything, though I doubt anything important has escaped this stupid number of messages.

I anticipate the dogishead chatlogs will be wanted too, haven't started on those but I guess one of us will sort those out soon.

[1:26:28 AM] josé maria macedo: oh one last shady thing
[1:26:39 AM] josé maria macedo: merge wont find this out because he used a mobile pen so no IP
[1:26:43 AM] josé maria macedo: but he played at my house sometimes
[1:26:49 AM] josé maria macedo: and you only have my word to go on it
[1:26:54 AM] josé maria macedo: but nothing shady happened
[1:27:02 AM] Nick Frame: Jose,
[1:27:21 AM] josé maria macedo: he lost 11k on prima at my house
[1:27:24 AM] Nick Frame: uve lied to me at least 3 times in this discussion so far.
[1:27:26 AM] josé maria macedo: vs a reg whos name i can easily find out from him
[1:27:30 AM] Nick Frame: why should i believe anything youre saying?
[1:27:42 AM] josé maria macedo: i dont know
[1:27:47 AM] josé maria macedo: because its true
[1:27:50 AM] josé maria macedo: because you know me
[1:27:57 AM] josé maria macedo: from the months we've spoken on strat
[1:27:58 AM] josé maria macedo: and the stuff ive done
[1:28:04 AM] josé maria macedo: and the person ive shown to be
[1:28:08 AM] josé maria macedo: that i dont do **** like this
[1:28:21 AM] josé maria macedo: that i would never scam anyone, much less you
[1:28:37 AM] Nick Frame: i was pretty bummed when i found out about this
[1:28:37 AM] Nick Frame: tbh
[1:28:42 AM] josé maria macedo: but thats all meaningless
[1:28:51 AM] josé maria macedo: what matters is my friend will confirm everything
[1:29:28 AM] Nick Frame: your friends?
[1:29:32 AM] Nick Frame: not your friend
[1:29:35 AM] josé maria macedo: hm?
[1:29:36 AM] Nick Frame: friends
[1:29:39 AM] Nick Frame: with an s
[1:29:41 AM] josé maria macedo: why?
[1:29:46 AM] Nick Frame: was dollarman not someone else?
[1:29:58 AM] Nick Frame: u said dollarman and sauron are different people
[1:30:01 AM] josé maria macedo: no
[1:30:05 AM] josé maria macedo: same person
[1:30:27 AM] josé maria macedo: the first time you asked who sauron was i said i didnt know
[1:30:32 AM] josé maria macedo: the 2nd time you asked i said who it was
[1:30:37 AM] josé maria macedo: who is the same person as dollarman
[1:31:05 AM] josé maria macedo: you will notice they play the same solid style to begin with
[1:31:10 AM] josé maria macedo: and then get emotional and play random
[1:31:27 AM] Nick Frame: oh ok i guess i misread.
[1:31:40 AM] Nick Frame: i thot sauron was diff friend than dollar, my mistake
[1:31:45 AM] josé maria macedo: its ok
[1:32:20 AM] Nick Frame: why do u guys sign on and off at the same times?
[1:32:28 AM] josé maria macedo: we dont
[1:32:31 AM] Nick Frame: oh yes u do.
[1:32:32 AM] josé maria macedo: that cant be true
[1:32:35 AM] Nick Frame: yes it is.
[1:32:46 AM] Nick Frame: weve been watching
[1:33:01 AM] josé maria macedo: i mean sometimes hes at my house
[1:33:03 AM] josé maria macedo: but certainly not always
[1:33:13 AM] josé maria macedo: its impossible that its always
[1:33:16 AM] josé maria macedo: that would be too coincidental
[1:33:21 AM] josé maria macedo: and his sleep pattern is different from mine
[1:33:35 AM] Nick Frame: its quite often
[1:33:39 AM] Nick Frame: shockingly often
[1:33:39 AM] Nick Frame: tbh
[1:33:50 AM] Nick Frame: whens the last time he was at your house?
[1:33:51 AM] josé maria macedo: i think thats not true
[1:33:54 AM] josé maria macedo: yesterday
[1:34:12 AM] Nick Frame: Jose, cmon dude. weve known about this for a week now. weve been watching!
[1:34:27 AM] josé maria macedo: we played yesterday
[1:34:42 AM] Nick Frame: so he played matt yesterday correct?
[1:34:50 AM] josé maria macedo: umm
[1:34:53 AM] josé maria macedo: yeah
[1:35:29 AM] josé maria macedo: i didnt really watch their match
[1:35:33 AM] josé maria macedo: i think i was on teamviewer for a while
[1:35:38 AM] josé maria macedo: but then it stopped working
[1:35:46 AM] Nick Frame: yeah, i know
[1:35:47 AM] josé maria macedo: i know he made some awful play with k high and sucked out
[1:36:30 AM] josé maria macedo: i was busy at the time
[1:36:53 AM] josé maria macedo: i didnt really care that i couldnt sweat him
[1:37:10 AM] josé maria macedo: but w/e
[1:37:26 AM] Nick Frame: you understand our position right?
[1:37:30 AM] josé maria macedo: ofc
[1:37:32 AM] Nick Frame: i mean you understand how this looks to us
[1:37:35 AM] josé maria macedo: yeah
[1:37:41 AM] josé maria macedo: but honestly
[1:37:52 AM] josé maria macedo: i hope that myself in your position i would be able to trust my judgment of the person
[1:37:58 AM] josé maria macedo: rather than what things appear to be
[1:38:08 AM] josé maria macedo: i dont know if i would tho
[1:38:21 AM] josé maria macedo: theres no reason why id keep playing him again and again
[1:38:26 AM] josé maria macedo: but you know that
[1:38:31 AM] josé maria macedo: and it couldve just been to keep the cover up
[1:38:39 AM] josé maria macedo: but if id cared about keeping the cover up
[1:38:46 AM] josé maria macedo: i wouldve covered it up better than this lol
[1:39:06 AM] Nick Frame: i wont comment on those things.
[1:39:12 AM] josé maria macedo: theres no reason why he'd lose money against a ton of ppl that were sweated
[1:39:16 AM] josé maria macedo: im not sure if he lost vs you
[1:39:26 AM] josé maria macedo: i think he won vs matt?
[1:39:30 AM] josé maria macedo: a bit?
[1:39:37 AM] Nick Frame: no he absolutely did not
[1:40:11 AM] josé maria macedo: and he lost vs me too
[1:40:13 AM] josé maria macedo: mostly
[1:40:19 AM] Nick Frame: none of that matters
[1:40:21 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:40:24 AM] Nick Frame: realistically
[1:40:49 AM] josé maria macedo: yes?
[1:40:58 AM] josé maria macedo: i mean, it looks so bad
[1:41:02 AM] josé maria macedo: but you need to give me a chance to bring my friend
[1:41:07 AM] josé maria macedo: and explain things
[1:41:17 AM] Nick Frame: is your friend there now?
[1:41:19 AM] josé maria macedo: you can test his poker knowledge
[1:41:20 AM] josé maria macedo: no
[1:41:32 AM] Nick Frame: we are quite curious about some hands mr. dollarman played
[1:41:47 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:41:56 AM] josé maria macedo: ill give you his skype and call him tomorrow
[1:41:59 AM] josé maria macedo: ?
[1:42:18 AM] Nick Frame: no
[1:42:22 AM] Nick Frame: i need to talk to every1 first
[1:42:30 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:42:41 AM] josé maria macedo: ask me anything you want about my friend
[1:42:49 AM] josé maria macedo: and quiz his poker knowledge
[1:42:53 AM] josé maria macedo: w/e you want
are you going to go public with this?
[1:43:58 AM] josé maria macedo: because everything about me is online and it will be associated to this to the end of time
[1:44:13 AM] josé maria macedo: i will be seen as this
[1:44:27 AM] josé maria macedo: you need to give me a chance to explain
[1:45:07 AM] josé maria macedo: nick
[1:45:22 AM] josé maria macedo: please believe me and everything ive done, my video, all the stuff ive said, everything you know about me
[1:45:31 AM] josé maria macedo: please dont screw me over like this
[1:46:04 AM] josé maria macedo: if you want, i will repay whatever you guys lost to sauron, if you lost anything net
[1:46:13 AM] Nick Frame: well i know off the top of my head
[1:46:16 AM] josé maria macedo: i will send it by moneybookers
[1:46:21 AM] Nick Frame: oscar lost 10 and matt lost like 15
[1:46:22 AM] josé maria macedo: or by bank wire
[1:46:28 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:46:33 AM] Nick Frame: but
[1:46:41 AM] Nick Frame: u will certainly have your chance to explain
[1:46:43 AM] josé maria macedo: i offered to take 100% of oscar's action
[1:46:54 AM] josé maria macedo: are you planning on ever going public?
[1:47:03 AM] Nick Frame: i cant answer that
[1:47:08 AM] josé maria macedo: please nick
[1:47:10 AM] josé maria macedo: dont do this
[1:47:26 AM] Nick Frame: you'll have your chance!
[1:47:33 AM] josé maria macedo: i dont see why i should but i will repay every cent back to matt and oscar
[1:47:38 AM] Nick Frame: i am not making that decisons. its the group's decision.
[1:48:26 AM] Nick Frame: you can trust us, to make the right, fair decision.
[1:48:58 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:49:10 AM] josé maria macedo: what explanations do you want?
[1:50:02 AM] Nick Frame: i want to know why u wanted us to play him. u brought up playing sauron 5 times to me, out of the blue.
[1:50:03 AM] Nick Frame: why?
[1:50:12 AM] Nick Frame: why'd u want Jay to play dollar so badly?
[1:50:23 AM] Nick Frame: why'd u always as Matt to play sauron?
[1:50:37 AM] josé maria macedo: he wanted to play you a lot
[1:50:57 AM] josé maria macedo: he loved jay
[1:51:14 AM] josé maria macedo: cuz of all the action
[1:51:31 AM] josé maria macedo: i mean no one gave him action
[1:51:36 AM] josé maria macedo: he sat every1
[1:51:48 AM] josé maria macedo: he sat on the lobby alone for hours
[1:52:06 AM] Nick Frame: why does he play 6m on ipoker
[1:52:08 AM] Nick Frame: and not overbet?
[1:52:27 AM] josé maria macedo: no 6m runs on overbet at 10 20 i guess
[1:52:35 AM] josé maria macedo: he doesnt like 5 10
[1:54:17 AM] josé maria macedo: and idk i liked seeing him play ppl
[1:54:38 AM] josé maria macedo: i dunno why
[1:55:11 AM] josé maria macedo: i wanted to sweat you in general though
[1:55:13 AM] josé maria macedo: not just for that
[1:55:29 AM] Nick Frame: why did u want to contact geeforce1 today? and i noticed sauron and geeforce played today on ipoker for a few hands
[1:55:45 AM] josé maria macedo: they played since 2 weeks ago
[1:56:04 AM] Nick Frame: ok w/e, why did u want to talk to him?
[1:56:14 AM] josé maria macedo: sauron wanted to HU him at 50/100 with a show every hand rule
[1:56:32 AM] josé maria macedo: or 25 50 or something
[1:56:37 AM] josé maria macedo: he thought gee had an edge on him
[1:57:03 AM] josé maria macedo: but with that rule he wouldnt
[1:57:20 AM] josé maria macedo: and hes the only one who gives him action
[1:57:22 AM] Nick Frame: we will most likely need every hand dollarman and sauron played against every1 from the group
[1:57:33 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:57:43 AM] Nick Frame: i find a valuebet dollar missed
[1:57:46 AM] Nick Frame: quite suspicious
[1:58:03 AM] josé maria macedo: but there are also hands that prove the contrary
[1:58:07 AM] Nick Frame: no
[1:58:09 AM] Nick Frame: they dont
[1:58:10 AM] Nick Frame: see
[1:58:15 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[1:58:15 AM] Nick Frame: u can play
[1:58:18 AM] Nick Frame: any hand u want to
[1:58:21 AM] Nick Frame: in a way to let me win
[1:58:34 AM] Nick Frame: however, u cannot play a hand weirdly to make yourself win
[1:58:34 AM] josé maria macedo: then how can i win this argument?
[1:58:36 AM] Nick Frame: if that makes sense
[1:58:46 AM] Nick Frame: like u can miss the easiest vbet ever on the river
[1:58:48 AM] Nick Frame: cant*
[1:58:55 AM] Nick Frame: obv
[1:58:58 AM] Nick Frame: if u have top 2
[1:59:00 AM] Nick Frame: in 3 pot
[1:59:03 AM] Nick Frame: and i got set
[1:59:08 AM] Nick Frame: u HAVE to go broke
[1:59:10 AM] Nick Frame: get it?
[1:59:12 AM] josé maria macedo: yeah
[1:59:15 AM] Nick Frame: right on
[1:59:23 AM] josé maria macedo: but there must be some stuff that proves the contrary?
[1:59:28 AM] josé maria macedo: bluffs into good hands or something
[1:59:30 AM] Nick Frame: well, i have no idea.
[1:59:35 AM] josé maria macedo: or other stuff
[1:59:50 AM] Nick Frame: i mean if its there, then its there, and we'll have to see.
[2:00:12 AM] josé maria macedo: whats your plan if you decide that i was superusing you?
[2:00:21 AM] josé maria macedo: go on 2p2?
[2:00:54 AM] josé maria macedo: my friend exists though
[2:00:55 AM] josé maria macedo: and im a good person
[2:00:59 AM] josé maria macedo: jesus
[2:01:05 AM] josé maria macedo: i cant believe this is happening
[2:01:15 AM] josé maria macedo: its not your fault im sorry
[2:01:22 AM] Nick Frame: look, i cant say anything about what we are going to do or not do. its not my call! its the groups call.
[2:01:46 AM] Nick Frame: and the group is asleep
[2:01:50 AM] Nick Frame: except Jay
[2:02:14 AM] josé maria macedo: ok
[2:02:21 AM] josé maria macedo: well
[2:02:25 AM] josé maria macedo: i will text my friend
[2:02:33 AM] josé maria macedo: tell him we might have to fly somewhere??
[2:03:01 AM] Nick Frame: possibly.
[2:03:03 AM] Nick Frame: but i dont know.
[2:03:07 AM] josé maria macedo: and
[2:03:34 AM] josé maria macedo: ive sweated jungleman dogishead etc
[2:03:51 AM] josé maria macedo: nothing ever happened
[2:04:23 AM] josé maria macedo: that doesnt mean anything though
[2:04:26 AM] Nick Frame: thats like saying, "well ive been to the store many times and havent stolen any. see there, u believe me now?"
[2:04:26 AM] josé maria macedo: im just tired ignore it
[2:04:29 AM] Nick Frame: yeah exactly

[2:05:53 AM] josé maria macedo: im the same ****ing person
[2:05:58 AM] Nick Frame: that we had to give it the respect
[2:05:59 AM] josé maria macedo: i just lied
[2:06:01 AM] Nick Frame: and compile evidence
[2:06:03 AM] josé maria macedo: im sorry
[2:06:11 AM] josé maria macedo: matt likes me?
[2:06:41 AM] Nick Frame: so....you will have your chance to explain everythign u want to explain
[2:06:42 AM] josé maria macedo: if you both like me
[2:06:46 AM] Nick Frame: and prove everything
[2:06:48 AM] josé maria macedo: lets settle this privately
[2:06:56 AM] josé maria macedo: thats all i ask
[2:07:07 AM] josé maria macedo: dont ruin my life, my name is out there my picture everything

[2:07:24 AM] Nick Frame: its not up to me Jose
[2:07:27 AM] Nick Frame: it is partly
[2:07:34 AM] Nick Frame: but the group will make the decision.
[2:07:35 AM] josé maria macedo: cant you give me some sort of assurance?
[2:07:52 AM] Nick Frame: no.
[2:08:03 AM] Nick Frame: i dont know what to tell u
[2:08:19 AM] josé maria macedo: in my place, what would you have done differently?
[2:08:21 AM] Nick Frame: listen Jose, weve been on to this for a week now.
[2:08:23 AM] josé maria macedo: told me straight up it was your friend
[2:08:23 AM] josé maria macedo: right?
[2:09:21 AM] josé maria macedo: im never sweating anyone again
[2:09:35 AM] josé maria macedo: im sure of that
[2:09:41 AM] Nick Frame: thats a good idea
[2:09:54 AM] josé maria macedo: ive learnt my lesson from this ****
[2:10:32 AM] josé maria macedo: remember who i am
[2:10:35 AM] josé maria macedo: all the stuff ive posted
[2:10:39 AM] josé maria macedo: all the stuff you know ive done
[2:10:53 AM] josé maria macedo: and ask yourself if any of that is consistent with scamming ppl like this
[2:11:12 AM] josé maria macedo: all the hours of strat, all the help i gave to randoms
[2:11:31 AM] josé maria macedo: just ask yourself that
[2:11:32 AM] josé maria macedo: you and matt
[2:11:58 AM] Nick Frame: lol
[2:12:17 AM] Nick Frame: i will say
[2:12:21 AM] Nick Frame: that has a lot going for u
[2:12:29 AM] Nick Frame: we were all very shocked.
[2:12:35 AM] josé maria macedo: exactly
[2:12:38 AM] josé maria macedo: its unthinkable
[2:12:40 AM] Nick Frame: but i cant say it determines the outcome of this.
[2:12:44 AM] josé maria macedo: i have jungleman sauce etc
[2:12:49 AM] josé maria macedo: why would i choose to scam you?
[2:12:50 AM] Nick Frame: how can i say that determines the outcome?
[2:12:52 AM] josé maria macedo: no offense
[2:12:57 AM] josé maria macedo: but they play much higher stakes
[2:13:09 AM] josé maria macedo: i would make a lot more money scamming them
[2:13:28 AM] josé maria macedo: that doesnt matter either
[2:14:01 AM] josé maria macedo: you can ask my friend for his poker thought processes
[2:14:07 AM] josé maria macedo: youll see they are advanced when hes logic
[2:14:52 AM] josé maria macedo: i think ideal would be i fly out with him to london
[2:14:56 AM] Nick Frame: well regardless. u cannot deny what u did was at least VERY deceitful.
[2:15:00 AM] josé maria macedo: he brings his ID and dad death certificate or whatever
[2:15:01 AM] josé maria macedo: it was
[2:15:06 AM] josé maria macedo: and i feel so bad for it
[2:15:08 AM] Nick Frame: what does that have to do with anything
[2:15:15 AM] josé maria macedo: to prove that he is who i say he is
[2:15:28 AM] josé maria macedo: he can bring bank statements too
[2:15:59 AM] josé maria macedo: proving hes emancipated /etc what i said is true
[2:16:16 AM] Nick Frame: load TV right now.

[2:51:41 AM] josé maria macedo: if i sometimes seem pissed its not at you
[2:51:42 AM] josé maria macedo: its just at the situation at myself at everything
[2:51:54 AM] josé maria macedo: at the things i get myself into
[2:51:59 AM] josé maria macedo: by just being a jackass
[2:52:16 AM] josé maria macedo: what i said about sponsorship and pokerstrategy and stuff is 100% true
[2:52:24 AM] josé maria macedo: i will drop everything in return for this being kept private
[2:52:33 AM] josé maria macedo: surely that should be enough punishment
[2:52:34 AM] Nick Frame: what was the motive tho? was it just fun for u?
[2:52:41 AM] Nick Frame: whyd u tell us he was some big fish
[2:52:45 AM] Nick Frame: he CLEARLY ****ing wasnt

[2:53:14 AM] josé maria macedo: really?
[2:53:33 AM] josé maria macedo: i consider him very good when hes focussed
[2:53:36 AM] josé maria macedo: and with a terrible spew mode
[2:53:43 AM] josé maria macedo: he played the worse vs you
[2:53:49 AM] josé maria macedo: which is why i find it strange
[2:53:55 AM] josé maria macedo: he played best vs matthew
[2:54:04 AM] josé maria macedo: he was super tilted vs you
[2:54:31 AM] josé maria macedo: but again, i will drop everything as i said, without the blink of an eye
[2:54:35 AM] josé maria macedo: and i wont hold it against you at all

[2:56:36 AM] josé maria macedo: just that one thing
[2:56:39 AM] josé maria macedo: thats all i ask
[2:56:43 AM] josé maria macedo: surely thats a fair trade
[2:57:10 AM] Nick Frame: im not into like punishing u or something. i just want to do the right thing.
[2:57:19 AM] Nick Frame: idk what that is right now. we dont have all the facts quite yet
[2:57:32 AM] josé maria macedo: but going public would punish me
[2:57:34 AM] josé maria macedo: severely
[2:57:52 AM] josé maria macedo: listen, im never been as unhappy as during the bluff challenge controversy at the beginning
[2:57:54 AM] josé maria macedo: ive never felt like that ever
[2:58:03 AM] josé maria macedo: im a super chill guy, even during downswings
[2:58:10 AM] josé maria macedo: and right now its the same feeling
[2:58:16 AM] josé maria macedo: and it will keep happening
[2:58:20 AM] josé maria macedo: and its totally my fault
[2:58:28 AM] josé maria macedo: i just want to quit
[2:58:34 AM] josé maria macedo: i wont do it now obv
[2:58:36 AM] josé maria macedo: im hotheaded
[2:59:06 AM] josé maria macedo: but doing the right thing isnt going public imo
[2:59:20 AM] josé maria macedo: and if you ever thought i was a good person at all, dont do that
[2:59:26 AM] josé maria macedo: i will do anything else
[2:59:30 AM] josé maria macedo: anyways
[2:59:42 AM] josé maria macedo: ill get all the HH's for you tomorrow

[3:01:06 AM] josé maria macedo: unrelated to this
[3:01:14 AM] josé maria macedo: youre pretty much the only preson online i can talk to right now
[3:01:23 AM] Nick Frame: what youve got going for u is that we have all, at least at one point, liked u a lot, and u seem to be very good at poker and weve been scratching our heads at your motive.
[3:02:09 AM] josé maria macedo: i have no motive
[3:02:13 AM] Nick Frame: i still dont know what to think. i need to sleep on it and talk to others. but i give u my word we will all talk before anything is said. and u will have your chance. i honestly have no clue what they will say.
[3:02:23 AM] josé maria macedo: but
[3:02:31 AM] josé maria macedo: you think they wont accept me quitting poker as enough judgment?
[3:02:59 AM] Nick Frame: listen i think u need to walk away
[3:03:03 AM] Nick Frame: get some sleep
[3:03:07 AM] Nick Frame: go do something
[3:03:10 AM] josé maria macedo: yea i will
[3:03:15 AM] josé maria macedo: just answer that one question

[3:03:37 AM] Nick Frame: we'll figure it out
[3:03:54 AM] Nick Frame: if u didnt cheat us, then maybe we'll decide on something else.
[3:03:59 AM] Nick Frame: but i dont know
[3:04:02 AM] josé maria macedo: something else other than me quitting?
[3:04:13 AM] josé maria macedo: or what?

[05/08/2011 17:17:03] josé maria macedo: its ok
[05/08/2011 17:17:07] josé maria macedo: i wont hold it against you or anything
[05/08/2011 17:17:18] josé maria macedo: i just hope you realize the consequences on my life and everything else
[05/08/2011 17:17:22] Matthew Moss: i understand that
[05/08/2011 17:17:24] Matthew Moss: but i hope you realise
[05/08/2011 17:17:30] Matthew Moss: that the implications of us not making it public
[05/08/2011 17:17:34] Matthew Moss: is to risk the rest of hsnl
[05/08/2011 17:17:36] Matthew Moss: getting scammed
[05/08/2011 17:17:41] Matthew Moss: even if it appears you've learnt your lesson
[05/08/2011 17:17:41] josé maria macedo: not if i quit poker for life
[05/08/2011 17:17:45] Matthew Moss: it's not fair on someone like geeforce1
[05/08/2011 17:17:49] josé maria macedo: if thats what you want
[05/08/2011 17:17:53] Matthew Moss: who you randomly get in contact with
[05/08/2011 17:17:56] Matthew Moss: and i have to track
[05/08/2011 17:17:58] josé maria macedo: and im never gonna do it again
[05/08/2011 17:18:01] Matthew Moss: so that he deosnt play sauron1989 on ipk

[05/08/2011 17:19:06] josé maria macedo: but i would rather
[05/08/2011 17:19:08] josé maria macedo: i would rather do that
[05/08/2011 17:19:10] josé maria macedo: please
[05/08/2011 17:19:11] josé maria macedo: please
[05/08/2011 17:19:15] josé maria macedo: i would rather quit poker
[05/08/2011 17:19:16] josé maria macedo: quit lock
[05/08/2011 17:19:18] josé maria macedo: quit pokerstrategy
[05/08/2011 17:19:22] josé maria macedo: then this go public
[05/08/2011 17:19:30] josé maria macedo: so in that way
[05/08/2011 17:19:32] josé maria macedo: the rest of HSNL isnt at risk
[05/08/2011 17:19:36] josé maria macedo: so please
[05/08/2011 17:19:42] josé maria macedo: dont make it a decision between going public, and not going
[05/08/2011 17:19:49] josé maria macedo: make it between me quitting poker, or not quitting
[05/08/2011 17:19:55] josé maria macedo: because the consequences are the same
[05/08/2011 17:19:59] josé maria macedo: and i would prefer it
[05/08/2011 17:20:05] josé maria macedo: can you do that?
[05/08/2011 17:20:23] Matthew Moss: give me some time
[05/08/2011 17:20:24] Matthew Moss: ok
[05/08/2011 17:20:34] Matthew Moss: i am prob the main proponent of taking this public fwiw
[05/08/2011 17:20:43] josé maria macedo: ok
[05/08/2011 17:20:51] Matthew Moss: because of the- it defends everyone else
[05/08/2011 17:20:57] josé maria macedo: but please
[05/08/2011 17:21:04] josé maria macedo: me quitting also defends everyone else
[05/08/2011 17:21:07] Matthew Moss: yeah
[05/08/2011 17:21:13] josé maria macedo: so whats the difference?
[05/08/2011 17:21:21] Matthew Moss: well the difference is in 4 years
[05/08/2011 17:21:22] josé maria macedo: you get to defend everyone else while not ruining a former friend's life
[05/08/2011 17:21:24] Matthew Moss: when you need money
[05/08/2011 17:21:26] josé maria macedo: surely thats a net gain
[05/08/2011 17:21:31] Matthew Moss: you could pull the same sort of stuff
[05/08/2011 17:21:34] Matthew Moss: you couldnt if it went public
[05/08/2011 17:21:36] Matthew Moss: on top of that
[05/08/2011 17:21:44] Matthew Moss: it going public is kind of the appropriate punishment imo
[05/08/2011 17:21:49] Matthew Moss: i mean it's tough
[05/08/2011 17:21:50] josé maria macedo: please matt
[05/08/2011 17:21:53] Matthew Moss: but not inappropriate
[05/08/2011 17:24:02] Matthew Moss: do you have any like
[05/08/2011 17:24:04] Matthew Moss: inklings
[05/08/2011 17:24:07] Matthew Moss: of why you did it?
[05/08/2011 17:24:09] josé maria macedo: no
[05/08/2011 17:24:13] josé maria macedo: no idea at all
[05/08/2011 17:24:16] josé maria macedo: my life was going amazingly
[05/08/2011 17:24:16] Matthew Moss: this is out of a pure interest point of view now
[05/08/2011 17:24:21] josé maria macedo: i was really happy
[05/08/2011 17:24:26] josé maria macedo: theres just nothing i could ever think of
[05/08/2011 17:24:30] josé maria macedo: it seems like i just didnt think
[05/08/2011 17:24:33] josé maria macedo: like my mind blanked
[05/08/2011 17:24:53] josé maria macedo: it makes no sense
[05/08/2011 17:24:55] josé maria macedo: from any standpoint
[05/08/2011 17:25:02] Matthew Moss: so odd
[05/08/2011 17:25:07] Matthew Moss: when did the idea form?
[05/08/2011 17:25:13] josé maria macedo: well
[05/08/2011 17:25:19] josé maria macedo: i setup the account for my friend
[05/08/2011 17:25:24] josé maria macedo: and he played some ppl
[05/08/2011 17:25:25] josé maria macedo: then played oscar
[05/08/2011 17:25:27] josé maria macedo: i sweated oscar
[05/08/2011 17:25:32] josé maria macedo: that game was legit btw
[05/08/2011 17:25:40] josé maria macedo: he was at his house i was at mine
[05/08/2011 17:25:43] Matthew Moss: ok
[05/08/2011 17:25:44] josé maria macedo: he won a ton
[05/08/2011 17:25:44] josé maria macedo: then he came over
[05/08/2011 17:25:45] Matthew Moss: yeah
[05/08/2011 17:25:49] josé maria macedo: played someone else
[05/08/2011 17:25:56] josé maria macedo: said he wanted to play some of my friends
[05/08/2011 17:26:04] josé maria macedo: and me too
[05/08/2011 17:26:06] josé maria macedo: we played legit
[05/08/2011 17:26:08] Matthew Moss: so i mean technically the oscar game was fine
[05/08/2011 17:26:13] Matthew Moss: but w/e
[05/08/2011 17:26:17] Matthew Moss: still right to pay him back imo
[05/08/2011 17:26:27] josé maria macedo: lol
[05/08/2011 17:26:28] josé maria macedo: ofc it is
[05/08/2011 17:26:30] josé maria macedo: ofc
[05/08/2011 17:26:40] Matthew Moss: bc you cant prove any of that and it looks like a massive cluster**** if you pay back xx% but not this this and this matches
[05/08/2011 17:26:41] Matthew Moss: ok
[05/08/2011 17:26:45] Matthew Moss: my first match wasnt legit was it
[05/08/2011 17:26:47] Matthew Moss: i could feel it wasnt
[05/08/2011 17:26:51] josé maria macedo: i would never dream of not paying back
[05/08/2011 17:26:53] Matthew Moss: i wanted to ask you to stop sweating
[05/08/2011 17:26:57] Matthew Moss: about 2/3 through
[05/08/2011 17:26:58] Matthew Moss: but was like
[05/08/2011 17:27:04] Matthew Moss: this is being overly paranoid and dumb
[05/08/2011 17:27:10] josé maria macedo: yeah
[05/08/2011 17:27:11] Matthew Moss: this guy is the portuguese prodigy girah guy
[05/08/2011 17:27:54] josé maria macedo: i mean it when i say i would rather do anything than it go public
[05/08/2011 17:27:56] josé maria macedo: anything
[05/08/2011 17:28:01] josé maria macedo: if we were ever friends, give me at least that
[05/08/2011 17:28:18] josé maria macedo: to everyone, not just you
[05/08/2011 17:28:55] Matthew Moss: the only thing is
[05/08/2011 17:28:58] Matthew Moss: looking through this chat log
[05/08/2011 17:29:03] Matthew Moss: you added me like a few days before i played sauron
[05/08/2011 17:29:08] Matthew Moss: which is pretty lame


[05/08/2011 17:32:11] josé maria macedo: this was never planned at all
[05/08/2011 17:32:14] josé maria macedo: im a good guy i think
[05/08/2011 17:32:19] josé maria macedo: i just made a mistake
[05/08/2011 17:32:24] josé maria macedo: just dont ruin my life
[05/08/2011 17:32:51] Matthew Moss: wrt it not being about the money
[05/08/2011 17:32:59] josé maria macedo: thats all i ask
[05/08/2011 17:33:01] Matthew Moss: why were you suddenly trying to add and scam cuff0 or geeforce
[05/08/2011 17:33:08] josé maria macedo: ive already told my mum
[05/08/2011 17:33:17] josé maria macedo: and she yelled at me so much
[05/08/2011 17:33:23] josé maria macedo: she basically refuses to talk to me
[05/08/2011 17:33:33] josé maria macedo: she says poker changed me etc she didnt raise me like this
[05/08/2011 17:33:35] josé maria macedo: and its all true
[05/08/2011 17:33:53] josé maria macedo: please make the argument between letting me quit poker, or allowing me to stay in poker
[05/08/2011 17:34:02] josé maria macedo: ive shown good will, i know ive ****ed up majorly
[05/08/2011 17:35:16] josé maria macedo: i wasnt, theres no way for you to know that, but my friend genuinely wanted to play geeforce at 25 50 with a show every hand rule
[05/08/2011 17:35:29] josé maria macedo: i wouldnt just randomly ask to sweat someone through twoplustwo
[05/08/2011 17:35:31] josé maria macedo: someone i dont know at all
[05/08/2011 17:35:36] josé maria macedo: basically he played him legitimately
[05/08/2011 17:35:45] josé maria macedo: thought gee had an edge on him
[05/08/2011 17:35:46] josé maria macedo: but thought if he saw his hands he could beat him
[05/08/2011 17:35:55] josé maria macedo: my friend can confirm all of this
[05/08/2011 17:36:05] josé maria macedo: i can ask him to come on skype once he gets back, or right today if it would make things easier
[05/08/2011 17:36:08] Matthew Moss: well i pmed him and am talking to him later so will ask his side of story

[05/08/2011 17:42:38] Matthew Moss: public or not
[05/08/2011 17:43:08] josé maria macedo: man matthew, dont make this weigh into your decision and im not trying to threaten or anything like that because its obv not like that. but honestly, i would actually rather die than it go public
[05/08/2011 17:43:11] josé maria macedo: thats how much it means to me
[05/08/2011 17:45:08] josé maria macedo: surely while the compensation doesnt affect the decision in that its not a bribe, it also shows some good will? shows that i know how much i ****ed up etc

[05/08/2011 17:45:59] josé maria macedo: im not interested in going public
[05/08/2011 17:46:01] josé maria macedo: yeah it is ofc
[05/08/2011 17:46:13] josé maria macedo: i know what i did is wrong
[05/08/2011 17:46:18] josé maria macedo: but it wasnt some elaborate plan
[05/08/2011 17:46:18] josé maria macedo: and it wasnt to make money
[05/08/2011 17:46:25] josé maria macedo: i have sauce jungle etc that i can sweat
[05/08/2011 17:46:36] josé maria macedo: all play much higher stakes
[05/08/2011 17:46:36] josé maria macedo: nto to mention all my students
[05/08/2011 17:46:40] josé maria macedo: if it was some elaborate ploy
[05/08/2011 17:46:40] Matthew Moss: yeah
[05/08/2011 17:46:44] Matthew Moss: which is why we cant not go public
[05/08/2011 17:46:45] Matthew Moss: bc
[05/08/2011 17:46:48] josé maria macedo: i wouldve just scammed ppl already
[05/08/2011 17:46:48] Matthew Moss: you have 80 students
[05/08/2011 17:46:54] josé maria macedo: yeah but i wont coach anymore
[05/08/2011 17:46:57] Matthew Moss: how do we know you're not scamming them

[05/08/2011 17:47:45] josé maria macedo: we can draw up a contract
[05/08/2011 17:47:46] Matthew Moss: sit down and talk this over
[05/08/2011 17:47:47] Matthew Moss: with dogishead
[05/08/2011 17:47:48] josé maria macedo: that if i ever come back
