    Justin getting killed in the responses on Twitter, as you'd expect.

    He's totally avoiding my question, too, even though he's answering other (much easier) ones, and has clearly seen what I've asked. I've repeated it to where I've asked three times now.

    LOL

    I doubt he will answer me because it's the one question he can't answer without looking super guilty.

    I'll be sure to put the Mike Postle movie on the shelf right next to the Mike Matusow movie, just as soon as it comes out.

    I would love to know Justin's opinion on cases like OJ simpson & Casey Anthony.

    Clearly he thinks both are 100% innocent right?

    There’s not much to add, Druff really covered this well. I guess it’s just some more gasoline to add to the dumpster fire that is 2020. Mac was def not standing when he signed that statement regarding JFK. He was bent over and grabbing his ankles. At least to a layman (me) it looks that way.

    It looks like he may of bit off more than he could chew on this. Do I know for a fact that a more specialized and/or local lawyer could of negotiated better terms and certainly a more reasonable statement? No, but I would bet that way if I had to.

    Even if the California laws are diseased when it comes to these matters, if a clearly negligent entity and employee can get off this easy the justice system is a fucking joke.

    Looking forward to Postle’s Mockumentary. I hope it’s like the Blair Witch Project, and all the Postle Propagandists get lost in the woods.

    Am I remembering correctly that Justin was floor for the live stream more often than anyone else, or was there another guy?

    I believe he was officially the “Tournament Director” for Stones. Effectively, he was the Executive Producer for the livestream “Stones Live”. It may have not been his title, but from all reports he was the one in charge of the stream. He was in the back with a tech guy and had access to the feed in real time. He was there for most of the sessions in question, but was in Las Vegas during the World Series. When Justin wasn’t there, Postle seemed to appear less on the stream with much worse results.

    So a few things here.

    First off, Kuraitis kept avoiding my question, despite my posting it in several threads he stated, and then finally ran away from Twitter after the community was killing him in the responses.

    This was his last attempt to say something:

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306089495352078343

    He did try to answer Bart with a laughable regurgitation of Rounderlife crap:

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306090714678407168

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306094408211869697



    Finally, he just gave up, and "peace outted" it with an obnoxious Spiderman GIF:

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306140032546287618



    So... his attempt to do a victory lap and be accepted back into the poker community was a huge flop. The moron really thought that the statement by Mac had exonerated him, so he typed up his arrogant statement, posted it, and really thought that everyone would welcome him back with open arms. The opposite happened, and he ran away.

    I suspect he might be the one operating the "Poker Heroes" account, though, or at least might be sharing it with Postle and the other trolls.

    Anyway, suffice to say that Justin Kuraitis has likely given up being accepted back into poker's good graces, and we probably won't hear from him until....

    (see next post)

    There's another chapter about this saga about to take place. Khou Fang (the woman behind the poker_grandma and "Poker Thug" Twitter accounts) kept posting about 2 weeks ago about "September 28", and how it's going to be some kind of day of reckoning for those who opposed Postle.

    At first I had wondered if she was talking about some idiotic and frivolous libel/slander lawsuit. However, the date made no sense. If a lawsuit was being filed, it would be unlikely that they'd have the exact date later in the month it would be filed. That's not how things like that work. My guess at the time was that they were going to release something which either bashed their main opponents (Veronica, Doug Polk, Joey Ingram, etc) or was a detailed defense of Postle.

    The latter looks like it is probably the case.

    Recall Postle's recent statement in the Sac Bee. He talked about the documentary about the situation being produced by a game named Dave Broome, who is @broome88 on Twitter.

    I am not familiar with Mr. Broome or his work, but it does appear he is a legit documentary maker, and it doesn't appear he has much (or any) association with poker. So what gives? Who would make a documentary about this?

    Awhile back Mr. Broome attempted to contact Veronica for comment, but he made no attempt (to my knowledge) to contact anyone else in poker. Additionally, it seems that both Postle and Kuraitis are very excited to see this released.

    It is my belief that Stones is funding all or part of this documentary, as part of some kind of image rehabilitation.

    I do not have any kind of concrete evidence regarding this, but I think there's a good chance this is true. Given that Broome appears to have no association with poker, it's unlikely that he decided to do this on his own, as nobody cared about this story outside poker, nor does it really make very good documentary material. This is no "Tiger King", for sure.

    Broome's company, 25/7 Productions, claims to have existed since 2003, and claims to have 25 employees.

    It is based in Burbank, CA (kind of a "second Hollywood", also in the Los Angeles area), and not Sacramento, which is almost 400 miles away.

    I find it unlikely that Broome decided on his own to self-fund a Postle documentary. I believe that Stones probably paid for this, possibly recommended by a crisis management team which they may have hired.

    I asked Broome about this on Twitter, and mostly got a non-answer.

    I find it very unlikely that this will be a neutral documentary. If Stones (or a company they hired) paid anything for this (or paid for the whole thing), there's zero point zero chance it will cover the situation fairly.

    And without getting into the specifics here, I will say that biased documentaries are sometimes a tactic used by crisis management teams to combat bad press.

    Here's how it works:

    Company A gets some sort of bad press over some kind of accused (and true) wrongdoing.

    Company A is worried that this will noticeably impact business, so they hire Crisis Management Firm B to help rehabilitate their rep. In turn, Crisis Management Firm B has a relationship with Documentary Production Company C, and C is their go-to company to produce reliably biased documentaries in order to counter bad press. So B tells Company A, "Trust us. Hire C to make your documentary, and they will make it very favorable for you, while feigning objectivity, and this will counter the bad press."

    This isn't too different from an online search reputation firm, which you can pay to generate hundreds of phony positive search results in order to clog up Google results of any search on your name (or company).

    A little related.

    Kasey Mills, who was a Stones commentator and sometimes-player in the Postle games, was the 61st plaintiff to accept the deal, after being on the fence.

    Unfortunately, she has COVID-19, and is now experiencing mid-level symptoms, including breathing problems. I hope she ends up okay.

    Recall a few posts ago I expressed concern that Mac's statement exonerating Stones and Kuraitis went too far. While I understand why it happened (Stones demanded it for the settlement), I was concerned it would be used by Stones/Kuraitis to throw in everyone's faces for eternity.

    I was especially worried because the statement was considered "unusual" (even in the words of the Sac Bee) for the opposing counsel to make such a positive statement for the other side, even in settlement.

    Indeed, my fears have come true. First Kuraitis bragged out it in his statement, and now Stones:

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306092427304824832

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306603098975145987

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306368071385247744


    Ugh.

    When information of the settlement was leaked to me, it was said that Stones wanted a statement completely exonerating them and Kuraitis, but Mac refused, and only agreed to state that there was "no evidence" linking them to the cheating.

    However, the statement actually given reads more like an exoneration.

    Notice that the Stones account is actually bragging about how unusual the statement is from opposing counsel: "Have you ever seen a statement like the opposing counsel's before? Neither have we." Ugh.

    Not surprisingly, there has been some backlash against Mac in the poker community (and keep in mind he rarely gets hate except from the Postle crew), and he has gone silent on Twitter since September 14.

    Since Stones is being so chatty, I hit them with the same question I kept asking Kuraitis:

    Looks like Justin hasn't peace-outed from Twitter, after all:

    LOL

    Kuraitis is finally answering me with non-answers.

    Here was his first response:




    Then this...

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1306620474974240771


    Basically he's giving everyone the middle finger until the hyper-biased documentary comes out.

    If this is a legit documentary (as compared, maybe, to an informercial) wouldn't it show up on Broome's IMBD page? Because it doesn't. Also, maybe there's a connection with and funding by the old guy behind Rounders Life? He seems to be emotionally committed to this story.

    It is a little strange that Joey Ingram is staying silent on the matter so far.

    I don't think it would be to far fetched to say that maybe he was advised by attorney to say nothing for now, as he could face slander/libel lawsuits since JK and MP were found "innocent"?
