Poker pro Daniel Negreanu had his account at PokerStars hacked this week, seeing his account shrink by more than $100,000 due to bad bets.
The account was compromised by a crafty hacker, who then went on to play several hands at the $100/200 NL poker tables. Many of the moves made by the hacker did not reflect the skill of the Canadian poker pro.
Speaking about his hacked account on poker board twoplustwo, Negreanu said:
"I was on an airplane home while this guy was joyriding my Stars account. He hacked my email and I got that back; still figuring out what happened. When I have all the details I'll share when it makes sense to."
PokerStars has stepped up to the plate in dealing with the fraudulent activity, offering to fund the account back to where it stood before it was hacked.
