One of two scenearies: 1st - martonas is a well known poker player with a good sponsor behind trying to make a new style of publicity in order to bring more new players to the game and speculate about high stakes pros real value; 2nd - martonas is a new player with more than enough money to spend without being worried about it, who as tryed poker for a few years and consider himself good enough to take some money out of sponsored pros pockets. Now, whatever the case, i believe this novel will continue for a few more months, till someone one day comes to tv saying "yes it was me all the time"!
