Canadian poker pro Matthew Marafioti's name has been dragged through the mud in the past weeks. It all started last month when he and his ex-girlfriend Lauren Kling broke up and he called her names via his Twitter and Facebook.
Last week, things got really bad when an anonymous person posted Skype and Facebook conversations between Marafioti and Swedish hacker and poker player Samer Rahman in whi[...] Read more » Poker Players Show Their Anger Towards The Alleged High-Stakes Scam

The first text about this wasn't clear but now, after reading this update, i happen to find a clue about who could be that anonimous person that decided to reveal all those conversations between both players. Maybe his recently becoming ex-girlefriend had access to his social media passwords and logins...

sad to hears these kind of stories...wait a sec? really? no it's not!- i am very happy to see stories like this pop up from time to time- it just adds more meaning to the old good saying:"poker is rigged"- it is rigged is so many ways, that the safest thing you can think of is to play with money won from freerolls/no deposit bonuses/ min deposit- if you want to have a crack at nosebleeds...well you just have to climb all the ladders from the bottom

Well there's nothing conclusive so far but this looks like a story thats set to run and run.
Marafioti sounds like a complete fucking moron especially after his g/f exposed him for being such a lame. If she released the info that's awesome. Still no confirmation if its genuine or not...but it's fishy as hell and again shows the dangers of the internet and hacking.
If you're playing low stakes I wouldn't worry too much....
i am not into this, but is this really posibble? I've seen once a video where pros were making a documentary and saying how poker site owners could see your cards and that they did it and closed that site which owns a millions to their players...

“The reason i play poker is: I want fast and easy Money and that’s what poker means to me”, says Matthew Marafioti's. This sentence is a resume of what poker means to everybody. This shows how people who don’t play the game look at it and how those who play it for serious and involving big sums of Money on it define it. Poker envolves Money, people want Money, so people need to know how to play poker! Serious, this is obvious stuff, but after hearing about the stuff in which Matthew Marafioti is suposed to be involved, this vídeo hasn’t half the fun to watch as it should have, seeing a normal guy who likes to play poker reaching the top and enjoying the best pleasures with the easy and fast Money poker gave him. Now, was it just poker or was it poker scheme that made him reach all that he has? It’s sad. And everyone liked him as a person, and now they just can’t hear about him anymore. That’s why the really good ones tend to become na elite where it is difficult to enter, having some of these cases from time to time, it will be even more difficult to get near the good ones.
