The case versus affirmed online poker cheat Mike Postle was disregarded in early June with most of complainants accepting a settlement with the Stones Gambling Hall as well as its tournament director Justin Kuraitis, that supervised of the livestream.
Now, Postle is beginning a lawful battle of his very own, filing a claim against lots of noticeable names in texas hold’em for libel as well as character assassination.
Professional casino poker player and outspoken movie critic of Postle, Todd Witteles tweeted a screenshot of the fit Thursday evening.
Along with Witteles, Postle has actually sued against previous Stones worker Veronica Brill, who brought the accusations to light a year earlier, six-time WSOP arm band winner Daniel Negreanu, high-stakes gambler Haralabos Voulgaris, online poker personality Joey Ingram, as well as ESPN, Online poker News media, as well as Growth Online Poker, Run It Once, Crush Live Online Poker, Solve For Why, and Online poker Mentoring, which are run by texas hold’em pros Doug Polk, Phil Galfond, Bart Hanson, Matt Berkey, and Jonathan Little, specifically.
Regardless of his initial victory in court, Postle has been viewed as guilty in the eyes of most of the casino poker public, many that have actually been outspoken in their idea that he ripped off, probably with the help of an accomplice. Concepts on how it could have happened range from bone-conducting headphones in his hat, to hole card details sent out to his phone, yet thus far, no one has actually been able to definitively verify Postle cheated beyond his statistically unlikely payouts and relatively near-perfect texas hold’em play.
The declaring also lists John Does 1-1,000, which allows Postle’s legal team to include accuseds as they progress in the legal process. Essentially, any person that revealed statements attesting that Postle was unfaithful is provided as a defendant.

Postle filed the issue in the Superior Court of The Golden State in Sacramento Region. He is being represented by the high-profile Beverly Hills-based law firm Lowe & Associates, which focuses on enjoyment as well as organization legislation.
In a response to Witteles’ tweet, high-stakes mixed game pro Matt Glantz seemed shocked that the firm would take the case, tweeting, “He must have a family member or close friend who works for the firm.”
The problem specifies that Postle is looking for problems and injunctive alleviation for character assassination and slander, trade libel, false light, deliberate disturbance with prospective economic benefit, as well as deliberate infliction of psychological distress.
A crowd-funding site was established to work with legal representation for Brill, who was the first to implicate Postle. It fulfilled it’s $20,000 goal in less than 8 hrs.
