After CardRunners.com released talented poker coach Haseeb Qureshi from his duties this week, Qureshi took to his blog to explain his transgressions.

The poker instructor was found to be using the account of a notorious cheat, Jose “Girah” Macedo as was pro Daniel “jungleman12” Cates.  Macedo admitted to cheating players out of a five-figure amount from his Lock Poker account (Lock has since locked it and booted Macedo). 

Qureshi seems to suggest he is the whistle blower in all of this.

On his blog, Qureshi doesn’t offer much of an explanation as to why he was playing on Macedo’s account.  It should be noted that Macedo has previously been implicated for multi-accounting, so it’s not as if the poker instructor had no idea of the potential risks.

"When Jose's Lock account got locked once we reached Gibraltar and I spoke with Jungle in person, we agreed that we should pay via bank wire to ensure that everyone involved received their funds immediately without worry. We wanted to be as amenable as we could to those who got scammed, recognizing that we were in a position of authority, and spent most of that night cursing Jose for being so f***ing stupid and working out the details with the group," he wrote.

He has since admitted to chip dumping and says he is quitting poker.
