Poker Agency Makes Hacker Jake Davis Offer

Check Raise Management Sees Poker Potential In Cyber Hacker Jake Davis


Poker agency, Check Raise Management, wants to turn computer hacker Jake Davis into the next big thing in poker. Offering Davis a way to increase his bankroll in order to pay his legal fees, the agency says that although the company does not condone the hacker’s actions, Davis has shown great potential to perhaps be a successful poker player.

Director of Check Raise Management, Nick Ferro, says, “It’s in our opinion that Jake could be a poker talent waiting to happen; this may sound bizarre but he has already demonstrated several required skills to make him a successful poker pro; for example it was reported he used 16 different machines at once whilst hacking into the Serious and Organized Crime Agency website demonstrating an extraordinary level of multi-tasking, which is an essential pre-requisite in online poker.

“He also doesn’t mind wearing sun glasses and has an online moniker, so he is already half way there!

The agency’s pro team is now on standby to help mentor Davis if he takes the agency up on its offer.
