    he should be barred from casinos but i doubt it. maybe stones as they try and save face. but i don't believe russ hamilton is barred from anything.

    as for jail time. no chance, unless he was working with somebody and they implicate him. you can't prove he did anything

    what joey and that blonde chick needed to do is keep their investigation under wraps and catch him in the act him on phone or planting a mole next to him to swipe it in the act.

    them blasting all this poker cheating stuff all over the internet actually helped postle.

    if i were postle i would be more worried about certain parties/players he ripped off. i'm sure he did it to a few unsavory types that have a violent streak in them.

    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.
    Donít disagree Kerstetter wouldíve been a better choice she also works for the law firm and has actually done some legal work lately as I understand it vs Minkin who I donít believe has done any recently. (Kerstetter has done more commentating then playing the last several months other then a PAD she did recently on PokerGO)

    Small update:

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1192924773174497281

    They're getting trolled pretty hard in response.

    It's been 4 weeks, and the "investigation'' has not resulted in any statements yet.

    Justin Kuraitis has responded to Mac Verstandig's lawsuit. Apparently Justin has not been served yet, but Mac requested him to waiver service in order to "save expense". For reasons unknown, Justin has agreed to this (maybe so he won't be responsible for service fees if he loses?)

    He has until January 8, 2020 to response to the summons.

    "Independent" investigator Michael Lipman is now representing Stones Casino in the lawsuit against them.

    Oops.

    Update from Haley Hintze: https://www.vegasslotsonline.com/new...cheating-case/

    Cliffs: Postle has been avoiding service, and Mac Verstandig actually showed up at Postle's house and kept ringing the doorbell, then looked into Postle's house to see if he was really home (and he was). They're now trying to declare Postle served and move forward with the case.

    Druff- Thanks for the updates.

    Side note- Dodging a process server, I have also done this on a bogus case out of LA involving a known radio personality. I actually was not home at the time of the attempted service.

    Huge fan of Haley. Did she ever write that book on the UD scandal?

    She needs to write a book on something.

    Welllllllllllll.... this is really.... strange.

    First off, there was an account on Twitter named "Christina Postle" on YouTube pretending to be Mike's daughter, which was defending all of the hands in comments on the initial videos that were posted back in October. The account had a picture of Mike and a young girl. It was clearly Mike himself on the account. The account was eventually deleted. I hadn't heard about this until now.

    However, more recently, an article appeared on the little-known blog site "rounderlife.com", claiming that they analyzed Postle's hands, and that his play was "within reasonable range".

    Here's the article: https://www.rounderlife.com/new-numb...on-postlegate/

    They have not released any concrete information in this article which would show Postle's play was reasonable, but claim that this will be posted "over the next few weeks".

    The article was posted just hours ago.

    So what is Rounder Life, and who runs it?

    Many suspect that Postle himself runs Rounder Life, or that he hired a reputation-salvage internet firm to put it together. Neither appear to be true.

    Rounderlife.com was registered in 2008 -- eleven years before the discovery of the Postle scandal. The registration info is as follows:

    Name: EVERT CALDWELL
    Organization ROUNDERLIFE
    Address [redacted]
    City PANAMA CITY BEACH
    State / Province FLORIDA
    Postal Code 35222
    Phone [redcated]
    So who is Evert Caldwell?

    He's a 56-year-old man from Florida, who seems to play poker recreationally.



    Rounder Life has attempted to be a blog and poker affiliate site on and off throughout the years, but has failed. Nobody seems to be visiting it, and for several years it shut down and went "under construction".

    Here's what it looked like in 2011: https://web.archive.org/web/20110210...underlife.com/

    Here's what it looked like in August 2018, almost two months before the Postle scandal broke: https://web.archive.org/web/20180818...underlife.com/

    Evert Caldwell also attempted to start a "Rounder Magazine", but it didn't seem to exist too long. He still owns roundermagazine.com, which forwards to rounderlife.com.

    In October 2016, rounderlife.com displayed the following bizarre message as its entire content:

    “Rounder Magazine” and its related assets, including the web domains rounderlife.com and roundermagazine.com, as well as any and all rights to “Rounder” related trademarks including the “R” logo, have been returned to and are the sole property of its founder, Evert Caldwell.

    There are no further disputes between Mr. Caldwell and Compass Entertainment Group, LLC or any other person(s) named in the trademark lawsuit related to “Rounder”, which has been terminated.

    A new “Rounder” website is under construction.

    For additional information please contact Evert Caldwell at ecaldwell@rounderlife.com

    Weird, huh? A trademark dispute over a dead magazine and a website almost nobody visits?

    Anyway, it went back up in 2018, as you can see above.

    What is Evert Caldwell's relationship to Postle? I doubt there is one. My guess is that this is his way to get clicks, as everything else over the past 11 years has failed to draw traffic.

    You will see that the Alexa Site Traffic Analysis (not related to Amazon's Alexa, by the way) shows the site has virtually no traffic: https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/rounderlife.com


    In short: Nothing to see here. Just a guy trying to get attention to his blog. And I guess he kinda succeeded, for now.

    Going down the rabbit hole further, the trademark issue between Caldwell and Compass Entertainment Group seemed to stem from the fact that Compass owned rights to the "Rounder Poker Club" name: https://trademark.trademarkia.com/ro...-77699495.html

    Compass also produced content for the 2000s USPC tournament series, as noted by Allen Kessler in this 2009 2+2 post.

    However, their website, compassentertainment.com, is currently down, and replaced by a GoDaddy placeholder page.

    Presumably they attempted to stop Caldwell from using "Rounder" in his brand name in the mid-2010s, but apparently they gave up.

    Thx for the kind words. AP/UB book is on ice; writing it (it's about half done) was a negative, draining experience that exacerbated some health issues. So I had to step away for a while.

    PS: The Lipman story referenced above was also mine, just done for another site, the reborn Kickass Poker blog.

    Evert and Postle appear to be old buds, and Postle used to work in "Marketing and Promotions" for Rounder Life, which Evert edited. Check low on the masthead on p.4 here:

    https://www.rounderlife.com/wp-conte...nder_99-82.pdf

    Mike even had the postle@rounderlife e-mail address. So, this recent blog looks like a good ol' boy doing a favor for a friend.

    Great find.

    I stand corrected about the lack of relationship.

    Clearly, as you said, Evert is an old friend of his, trying to help him out. Maybe Evert is even naive enough to believe Postle is possibly innocent.

    I worked on a case where a doctor avoided service. The process server solved the problem by making a doctor's appointment.

    I guess this is another attempt by "Rounder Life" to of course not be biased and instill doubt on behalf of their friend, Mike Postle...this time from a smallish article from one David B. Lukow.

    https://www.rounderlife.com/postle-m...-other-casino/

    It's kinda hilarious. Grabbing at straws. He "may have played at other casinos" ---> so please don't try to go after my friend for millions which will make him bankrupt.

    Even if he did play regularly somewhere else, this is not the sticking point of the lawsuit, and shouldn't hurt the plaintiffs' chances.

    This David Lukow is an attorney based out of New York, but seems to have some association with poker over the years.

    I liked this disclaimer rounderlife put on the article... only after their objectivity was called into question!

    In 2007 Rounder Magazine recognized Mike Postle as an elite pro and provided him with merchandise to promote the Rounder brand. No other considerations have been provided. Mr. Postle has never had ownership rights, nor has he ever been employed by Rounder. Rounder Life Media is not in a position to determine Mike Postle's guilt or innocence. This will be determined by the official investigation(s) being conducted, or through a court of law, not speculation. We will continue to pursue all relevant facts related to this case and report such, whether they support or disprove the charges.

    Stones lawyers claiming that the gamblers suing them are just sore losers.

    https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/cr...240882781.html

    This might actually work, sadly. Juries could be easily fooled into thinking these were just people who couldn't handle losing money to a luckier or better player.

    Also a guy named @HenryGarrison18 on Twitter, supposedly manager of the Beau Rivage Poker Room in Biloxi, drew everyone's ire by stating that "Rounder Life" convinced him that people are jumping to conclusions about Postle too quickly.

    He was bashed hard and has since deleted the tweet.
