Adam Stanislaw Walczyk, the founder of poker affiliate site Poker Master Publishing, has been brutally murdered in the Dominican Republic.
The 37-year old from Poland was found dead on Monday in Bavaro, a well-known tourist area in Punta Cana. News reports suggest he was a regular visitor to the Caribbean island, and he was found tied up and repeatedly stabbed.
He was staying in a guarded residence when he died. However, several men attacked the guards before entering the home of Walczyk to murder him. Police have arrested four suspects with a fifth still on the run.
Walczyk created Poker Master Publishing in 2011. The company has since dissolved, but the website is still up and running.
