José Macedo signs deal to represent Lock Poker


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Las Vegas, NV – April 15, 2011 –

Poker Royalty, the world’s leading poker representation agency, announced today that the young Portuguese poker prodigy José “Triple P” Macedo has finalized a deal to represent Lock Poker Room as a LockPRO Elite team member.

At the fresh age of just 18, José has accomplished things in the poker world that most men twice his age can only dream of. Raised by his mother after his father’s passing, José’s dedication to learning the game of poker inspired his mom to deposit thirty dollars into an online account for him. Since then, José has parlayed that money into a small fortune of over 2 million dollars in less than 2 years.

“Lock’s focus on the player experience is unique and inspiring and something I truly wanted to associate myself with. I encourage anyone to come and challenge me on Lock, and look forward to the exciting times ahead”, said the young Macedo.

Inspired by the story of Tom “Durrr Dwan”, José is determined to become the best player in the world. He is dedicated to studying every game, every hand, and every situation to enhance his own abilities and improve his play. He brings a wealth of insight, passion, and objectivity to the Lock Poker room. Watching José climb the ladder to becoming one of poker’s elite will truly be entertaining and inspirational.

“José represents a new exciting episode for online poker and therefore Poker Royalty feels very strongly that he had to be associated with a site that matched his aspirations. Lock Poker is without a doubt that site,” said Jim Erwood, VP of Operations at Poker Royalty.
