The latest addition to the roster at Lock Poker is Pedro Maia, better known as “pls3betme” in online poker circles.

Maia is a Portuguese poker player who has been taking the Portuguese poker circuit by storm over the past two years –Maia managed to cash in every Main Event on the Portuguese Poker Tour, winning the Figueira Poker Tour Main Event. Maia also made a trip to the WSOP this past year and cashed in his first WSOP tournament, a $1,500 NLHE bracelet event.

Jennifer Larson, the CEO of Lock Poker had this to say about the site’s latest addition, “Pedro is an excellent addition to our incredible team of players!”

In a press release on Lock Poker Maia was quoted as saying, “I am delighted to join Lock Poker, a professional team of the highest level, with the Top international and Portuguese players, counting in its ranks with players of international reputation… Lock Poker is a room of the highest quality, to which I hope to bring my best contribution, at the same time as the exchange of experiences in this vast team will allow both personal development, and to Lock Poker itself as a poker room, continuing its growth and increasing brand awareness.”

Fellow Portuguese and Lock Poker pro Francisco “yuranpt” Santos called Maia a “pure young blood horse”. Adding, “He knows what he wants, he sets his goals and he goes after that with passion and determination… Pedro is a close friend of mine and I feel honored to have him with us. We have the same dream to be the 1st Portuguese to win a bracelet.”
