The Portuguse Poker Prodigy - José Girah Macedo assina pela LockPoker

Obviamente tinha que dar o exclusivo a Futpoker. Quando apareceu a noticia sobre o José eu decidi ir investigar pois a história era de fadas, o american dream. Cheguei ao José depois de ter checkado a veracidade dos seus números e de imediato fiquei WTF com ele. Não queria acreditar no que estava a ouvir, um puto que tinha um profit de +1,6k, humilde, com maturidade, inteligência e mais importante uma necessidade de querer saber mais. Nessa mesma 6 feira falei com a minha CEO para o contratar e no sabado quando voltei a falar com ele, Zé disse me que tinha assinado com a poker royalty ( na minha opinião a melhor agência de poker e de repente lembrei-me de algo. A Jennifer Larson, CEO da LockPoker ia ter uma reunião na Segunda feira com o Jim da Poker royalty. BINGO!!! As coisas evoluíram e hoje dia 12 de abril tenho o prazer de anunciar Jose girah Macedo no team Lock Poker ELITE.
