Mike Postle has finally spoken out after a year of allegations lodged against the poker pro that he had cheated during live streaming events at the Stones Gambling Hall outside of Sacramento, California.

Postle claims there was no proof.  Justin Kuraitis, who was also implicated, says "the truth is finally coming out". Kuraitis was the supervisor who presided over some of the allegedly crooked games.

Mac Verstandig, the lawyer who represented 88 claimants in a lawsuit filed against both individuals, 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.”

From PokerTube:

The case against Postle was thrown out of a California court earlier this summer, and that led to 61 of the 88 poker players accepting what Verstandig termed “an amicable settlement” in the remaining complaints against Stones and Kuraitis.

Postle has hinted at an upcoming documentary.

“As much as I’d like to say, all I can really say right now is that I have my side of this entire fiasco to tell. It won’t just shock the poker and gambling industries, but the entire world.

“This all goes way beyond just my innocence, but includes an entire incredible 17+ year story along with it, and what’s happened since the allegations. In fact, it’s such a mind blowing story, that it’s being told to Dave Broome at 25/7 Productions who will be producing a wild documentary for the world to see on it! I’ve been waiting for many, many months on this and I’m anxious for it to finally come out. So to all the detractors and accusers who have asked, ‘Why hasn’t he spoken or provided his evidence of innocence and explanations?’ “Well guess what? ... Now you know.”

Kuraitis offered this:

"I watched in utter amazement as Joey Ingram devoted hour after hour to 'PostleGate,'" Kuraitis wrote. "Some of the videos were entertaining and they certainly were great for increasing Ingram’s popularity, but as I watched them it became clear that Ingram was peddling false statistics, cherry-picking hands to fit his theories and ignoring data that did not fit his version of the story.

"The propaganda machine that these guys created was prolific but it was all a case of confirmation bias. Anything that fit in their narrative was trumpeted and the many things that contradicted their story were simply ignored."
