Justin Kuraitis, the Stones Tournament Director implicated in a widely publicized live streaming poker cheating scandal, has come out swinging after evidence failed to show any wrongdoing.   

Mac Verstandig, the lawyer who represented 88 claimants in a lawsuit filed against both poker pro Mike Postle and Kuraitis, told the Sac Bee this week:

“After reviewing evidence with the cooperation of Stones, my co-counsel and I have found no evidence supporting the plaintiffs’ claims against Stones, Stones Live Poker, or Justin Kuraitis.”

It all began in October 2019 when an employee of Stones Gambling Hall in Sacramento, CA, Veronica Brill, alerted the online poker community that Postle was s likely cheating by receiving information about his opponents’ hole cards.

What ensued was one of the greatest scandals in poker history.

Verstandig has been getting torn to shreds on Twitter after proclaiming his innocence. 

One player tweeted back in response:

"So it’s like a conspiracy that we are all in on? That is amazing since the community never agrees on anything until this.."

And another:

"Bro I would hate to be you right now because the court of public opinion has already made up their mind. If I wouldn’t add fuel to the fire because you never know when you might run into one of these drunken groups at night."

CrushLivePoker founder Bart Hanson is the latest to come forward to offer analyses of Postle's suspicious hands.

‘The AA vs K2dd hands and also the Jh 7s hand are new and are particularly egregious,’ says Hanson.

He also took a moment to take a swipe at Kuraitis, who goes by the handle of @JFKPokerTD on Twitter.
