Twenty-Four Poker Players Seek $30 Million in Financial Harm Lawsuit Against Stones Gambling Hall
Stones Gambling Hall, Mike Postle and Justin Kuraitis, Stone’s poker room manager, have all three found themselves in the middle of a $30 million lawsuit for an alleged scam. Players believe that all three contributed to them losing their money, and they want justice.
Stones Gambling Hall
Stones Gambling Hall has not been accused of cheating, but players do believe that they had their own role in the scam. Cheated players allege that the poker room consistently “downplayed” accusations of cheating on numerous occasions. Allegations also state that the gambling hall continued to promote Postle as they claimed that his superior poker skills were just that: skills. They are accused of severe negligence, which allowed this money-making scam to continue, and are being sued for $10 million.
Players behind the multi-million dollar lawsuit also claim that if the cheating allegations prove to be accurate, a member of Stone’s staff was behind relaying information to Mike Postle, hence how he knew their cards.
Postle is the man in the middle of this lawsuit and alleged to be the one that started it all. Players are under the impression that someone who remains unnamed gave Mike Postle information regarding their hole cards during several live poker streams, which allowed him to win the game and their money. The players, members of multiple online forums and forum investigators state that:
– A thorough analysis of Postle’s ability to play poker reveals a level of skill that far surpasses the skill level of the most notorious poker players in the world
– Postle’s win rate is not plausible
– During a one-year time frame, Postle’s poker playing was less than superior, which was due to the absence of his accomplice
– Multiple “guesses” were made that instantly benefited Mike financially, which resulted in him winning almost a quarter of a million dollars on the live stream games
– Postle rarely, if ever, chose to play other poker games with players. Instead, he chose to stick to Stone’s Live Stream Poker Games.
– Mike consistently held his phone in his hand underneath the table during games, which is alleged to have been a possibility as to how he was receiving his information
Mike Postle stuck to the live stream games because he was winning, or because that was the scam. Only the courts and investigators will be able to determine which verdict is the truth.
Kuraitis is another man that is being sued in this lawsuit, and players would like $10 million from him as well. He is accused of fraud for helping Postle cover up his money-making scheme. According to players, he ignored complaints and allowed this situation to continue despite the knowledge that it was occurring by refusing to do anything.
According to players, all three defendants in the lawsuit and one un-named accomplice contributed to the financial harm of poker players. Famous poker bloggers, such as Doug Polk, internet forums and social media accounts are all contributing to the discovery process to determine if these allegations are true.
