    Postle's got a great attorney.

    “I guess he wins a lot of hands of poker,” Portanova said. “I don’t gamble, because that’s how many hands I lose. But we don’t know what the facts are.

    “I can just say this: When I play poker I lose almost every hand, so I know such streaks are possible.”

    In Joey Ingram’s latest episode of investigating this matter, he shows some great memes that will help memorialize Mike Postle’s notable contribution to a future history of poker in our era.

    Starting at about 22:15 of Episode #10 of Joey Ingram’s investigation of this matter, Ingram discusses the lawsuit, including mentioning the reported reputation of Postle’s attorney and the likely legal strategy behind that seemingly ridiculous comment by that attorney. Turns out that his attorney is very experienced with both prosecuting and defending fraud cases and has a tremendous legal reputation in that area. And that it is a common used lawyerly tactic to make such “blustering” comments for public consumption to help sway public opinion before a trial even though it would have zero point zero evidentiary value within the courtroom in a trial.

    When Justin is hustling the other commentator on stream on that first hand Joey shows. No shame...

    Yes.

    They're bigger, heavier, and more difficult to handle. I remember when I played at Stones, when the stream was done, we switched away from them, and went to regular cards, because they were easier to use.

    BTW, in case you don't know, the last Pokerfraudalert Radio show (10/11/19) had both a long interview with Veronica Brill AND an interesting prank call to Stones immediately following.

    Both were well received by the show's audience.

    Yeah, Dwyte Thornton is money. Also, I really really hate Mike Postle. He makes my blood boil.

    I don't think I mentioned this yet regarding the Verstandig-led lawsuit against Postle/Justin/Stones.

    One of the attorneys listed in the filing is Kelly Minkin.

    Yes, THAT Kelly Minkin.

    I learned earlier this year that she was an attorney, but I had been led to believe that she was non-practicing -- at least since she got more into poker.

    Then suddenly she was listed as one of the attorneys working with Verstandig.

    What?!

    Apparently she joined Verstandig's firm "a few months ago". I don't know how much actual litigating experience she has. It's possible Verstandig added her simply because she's an attorney who understands poker, so she can be useful in that regard. Of course, Verstandig is also an attorney who plays poker, so is another one really necessary?

    Overall, I have respect for Minkin, but I really don't like her social media presence. It screams, "Smart, nerdy girl trying to act hip so you think she's cooler than she actually is."

    I mean, her Twitter screen name is @The_Illest, and that's not trying to be ironic. Then there was the awkward white girl rap she did to open one of the days of the WSOP Main event this year.

    She has enough going for her (good at poker, smart, pretty) to where she shouldn't need to put on this stupid act to impress people.

    Anyway, that's my small nitpick for the day.

    Carry on.

    If she's not a regularly practicing trial attorney, then she is utterly useless for any purpose beyond this.

    That was my thought. I won't claim to know her life history, but I had always believed she was a poker pro, which was why hearing her law school resume was surprising. But I had never seen her identify as a lawyer who just happens to also be good at poker.

    Anyway, maybe Verstandig brought her in so he can have someone on staff who understands poker even better than he does, as he admits he's a mediocre player. But at the same time, you don't need to be a great player in order to understand legal issues involving the poker community. Not really an important discussion to be having here, but I just found it interesting.

    no, sorry, they don't. what they have joey, doug and the many others calling him out.

    i'm not saying he's innocent, because he isn't. i'm saying they have no proof of the wrong doing as of now.

    data and video of him of how he should/should not play hands and a redick potripper win rate is what they have.

    There's loads of circumstantial evidence.

    Obviously they need some hard proof or this goes nowhere.
