Poker Pro Matt Marafioti Found Dead In New Jersey


Poker pro Matt Marafioti was found dead in New Jersey on Friday. This tragic news comes just days after the Canadian pro took to Instagram describing the concerns of danger and the plight he faced.

Several rumours were floating on the internet on Sunday when Todd Witteles of Poker Fraud Radio had reported that it was ‘likely, but not confirmed’ that Marafioti committed suicide. Witteles became suspicious after reading a story by DailyVoice.com about a 32-year-old man jumping from the 28th floor of a New Jersey apartment.

This Toronto-based player who reportedly won millions in poker live earnings has had several episodes with supposed demons. Marafioti was living with a friend on the 28th floor of Winston Towers, Bergen County above the Hudson River in Cliffside Park. On Friday, shortly after 11 AM, Marafioti jumped off the balcony on Winston Towers.

It is believed that Marafioti was staying with a friend after a breakup forced him to move from his apartment. A law enforcement official who had direct knowledge of the incident told Daily Voice, “He apparently thought his perceived pursuers “were coming to get him” when he panicked and jumped.”

This occurred shortly after Marafioti shared a post on Instagram:

Andrew Hanna also tweeted a few words about the late poker player:

It is believed that this Canadian poker pro who had over $2.8 million in live tournament cashes was mentally ill. In 2016, news about this poker player surfaced after he disappeared for nearly two months.
