Easy Game Episode 2: Matt “ADZ124” Marafioti (Video Mini-Doc)Created By: PokerListings.com
The last few months have been a controversial time for Canadian poker pro Matthew Marafioti.
From allegations of multi-accounting and playing on PokerStars from Las Vegas to the Twitter tirade following his breakup with Lauren Kling, Marafioti was already in hot water in the poker community when accusations of cheating surfaced on poker forum 2 + 2.
Marafioti maintains his innocence and has said that the chat logs posted online were doctored.
In May of 2012, before the most recent allegations came to light, PokerListings.com traveled to Marafioti’s home in Toronto to shoot the second episode in our ongoing video interview series Easy Game.
The interview doesn’t touch on the cheating allegations but rather seeks to present a picture of the person behind Matt Marafioti’s public persona.
In the following video we find out how ADZ124’s career began as a full-fledged online poker addiction and developed into a multi-million dollar enterprise that involves much support from his father Sam, who appears in the interview material.
