  1. The €10,300 EPT Prague High Roller came to a conclusion on Tuesday after a dominating final table performance by Denmark’s Henrik Hecklen propelled him to take home the €503,700 first-place prize and title of EPT High Roller Champion. Hecklen did the majority of the work at the final table himself, eliminating six of his final seven opponents. In the end, Hecklen secured his career-high live cash by besting one of Germany’s most formidable players in Ole Schemion in a lengthy heads-up match. Before that occurred, there was a tough final table that needed to be dealt with. With the elimination of Anton Yakyba in ninth place, the final eight players got down to the business of finishing off the final table. The first to fall was Australia’s Michael Addamo. After losing a big hand to Hecklen earlier, Addamo had been surviving on a short stack. The pair clashed again on Addamo’s final hand. Heckled opened with the [poker card="8s"][poker card="8d"] and from the big blind, Addamo moved in holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"]. Heckling called and the Addamo needed to catch to survive. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="8h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="7s"]94h], leaving Addamo drawing dead on the turn. He finished in eighth place for €63,310, his third cash of EPT Prague. Right behind Addamo, the Netherlands’ Jasper Meijer Van Putten was put to the test. Hecklen again made the open and Van Putten three-bet his short stack all-in from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="3h"]. Hecklen, going for his second knockout in under 10 minutes, made the call with [poker card="kc"][poker card="th"]. The flop fell [poker card="9d"][poker card="jh"][poker card="6h"] giving Hecklen a gutshot straight draw, but keeping Van Putten in the lead. The turn was gin for Hecklen, the [poker card="qs"] and it left Van Putten drawing dead. The [poker card="4s"] completed the board and Van Putten headed for the cage to collect his €86,170 for seventh place. Next, it was Tomas Paiva’s turn to tangle with Hecklen. From under the gun, Paiva shipped just under 20bbs with [poker card="9s"][poker card="9h"]. In the hijack, Hecklen reshoved, covering Paiva and holding [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board provided no drama for Hecklen, running out six-high. Paiva earned a career-high cash of €117,340 for his sixth-place finish. After a break, the final five players were back at it and so was Hecklen, who had another final table confrontation. Canada’s Daviel Dvoress put in a raise with [poker card="as"][poker card="9s"] and was three-bet by Hecklen. The flop came [poker card="kd"][poker card="ac"][poker card="5d"]. Hecklen bet, Dvoress call and they saw the turn of the [poker card="5c"]. Hecklen led again, Dvoress called again. The river was the [poker card="8s"] and Hecklen, covering Dvoress shoved. Dvoress tank called and Hecklen turned over the [poker card="ah"][poker card="ks"] for top two pair, eliminating Dvoress in fifth place for €155,010. While Hecklen was busy knocking out opponents, Alexandre Reard was busy doubling up. He actually did that a few times to climb out of critical condition and back into contention. After crippling defending Prague High Roller champion Danny Tang in a hand just minutes prior, Reard finished the job. Tang shoved his short stack from under the gun with [poker card="ks"][poker card="8s"] and Reard made the call from the big blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="3s"]. The flop was [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="ts"] offering Tang some backdoor opportunities and Reard a nut flush possibility. The turn was the [poker card="js"] giving Tang some life. However the river was a hapless [poker card="7h"] and Tang who won this event last year, settled for fourth place and another €197,720 for his bankroll. Reard was making headway into Hecklen’s lead but then he ran into German legend Ole Schemion who was biding his time, looking for openings. Schemion and Reard clashed in all-in confrontation that led to Schemion doubling through Reard. Then Reard faced the same situation as four other players before him, a clash with Hecklen. Hecklen raised the button and Reard defending hold [poker card="6h"][poker card="6c"]. The flop came [poker card="4c"][poker card="kc"]p6s] and Reard check-called a bet from Hecklen. The turn was the [poker card="8h"], Reard check-called an even bigger bet from Hecklen. The river was the [poker card="9s"], Reard, holding a set, checked again, Hecklen thought and shoved, having Reard covered. Reard snap called with his set, however, it was Hecklen who was ahead since the turn, turning over the [poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] for a straight. Reard’s valiant final table performance came to an end in third place for €244,950 pushing the Frenchman’s total live cash north of $2 million in his career. Hecklen, who has dominated the final table now faced his toughest challenge in that of Schemion. Holding a 5:1 chip lead when play began, Hecklen lost a few key hands early, allowing Schemion to double thru and, at one point, take the chip lead. However, Hecklen seemed destined to close out this tournament as he battled back to reclaim the chip lead. In the final hand, Schemion called on the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="2c"] and Hecklen put in a raise with the [poker card="qs"][poker card="qc"]. Schemion waited a breath and moved all in only to be snap called by Hecklen. The board ran out clean for Hecklen - [poker card="ks"][poker card="3d"][poker card="4d"][poker card="6s"][poker card="kd"] - leaving the German phenom to settle for second place and €334,900. The result leaves Schemion just shy of $15 million in live total earnings. For his part Hecklin’s High Roller victory is the current money peak of his career and is his first live victory since winning the Estrellas High Roller at EPT Barcelona back in 2014. Hecklen earns €503,700 ($572,688) for the victory. PokerStars next stop will be at the 2019 PCA, which will include the $25K PSPC. The festival gets underway on January 6.

  5. Already facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit in one state because of his alleged cheating in the Stones Live cash games, Mike Postle is now the subject of a federal lawsuit in another state. Marle Cordeiro filed a lawsuit against Postle this week in Nevada, seeking a quarter-million dollars in punitive damages plus three times the amount of money she lost to Postle in the live-streamed cash games at Stones Gambling Hall, as well as all legal fees. The first lawsuit, filed in California in October 2019 seeks $30 million on behalf of a number of poker players who were allegedly cheated by Postle. The latest lawsuit alleges Postle was in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, committed fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and negligence per se. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] The suit details one particular hand Cordeiro and Postle played together on the live stream as a means of demonstrating Postle's cheating. On September 21, 2019 Cordeiro was playing $10/$25/$50 NLHE and was dealt the [poker card="qs"][poker card="td"] and raised to $150. Postle defended his big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="jh"]. After the [poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8s"] flop, Postle check-called Cordeiro's bet of $200. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] and Postle check-folded to Cordeiro's bet of $600. The lawsuit points to the live stream commentator who "exclaimed, "It doesn't make sense!" and claims that Postle's fold in this spot "is only attributable to his tortious conduct." In total, the lawsuit mentions 68 sessions between July 2018 and September 2019 in which Postle played on the Stones Live live stream and is alleged to have cheated. The lawsuit points out Postle was a winner in 94% of the sessions he played and points out that "such a winning percentage, under these confined circumstances in a streamed environment, is not known to have ever been achieved by any other poker player...". The filing details the allegations against Postle that he used a cell phone placed in his lap, out of the view of other players, to receive information regarding the hole cards of other players from a "confederate" working on the live stream broadcast. Postle is the only defendant named in this filing, but the California lawsuit listed Postle, as well as King’s Casino, the owner of the Stones Gambling Hall, and Justin Kuraitis, the Stones Tournament Director who was also responsible for the management of the streaming operation, as defendants. Earlier this year, King's Casino filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming that the "lawsuit reflects the oldest complaint of gamblers – that their lack of success means they were cheated".

  7. The legal battle in the ongoing cases against California-based poker player Mike Postle in connection with cheating allegations during the Stones Live cash games took another interesting turn this week. Postle is being accused of using a ghostwriter in his Motion to Dismiss the California case he faces against Veronica Brill and other named plaintiffs. Also, in an entirely separate matter, Postle is being accused of dodging service in the Nevada case brought by poker player Marle Cordeiro. On Tuesday, April 28 Maurice ‘Mac’ VerStandig, lead counsel for Veronica Brill and the other named plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Mike Postle, filed a pair of motions in federal court of the Eastern District of California in opposition to a previously filed Motion to Dismiss by Postle in late March. In the 36-page Opposition Motion to Postle’s Motion to Dismiss, Plaintiff’s counsel reinforced their arguments against Postle, bringing back the allegations of cheating while deconstructing Postle’s Motion to Dismiss in an effort to make sure the case will proceed. In a second California filing, VerStandig is asking for sanctions against Postle, accusing him of using a ghostwriter in filing his Motion to Dismiss. Alleged in VerStandig’s filed Motion for Sanctions, the Motion to Dismiss filing submitted and signed by Postle, who is not officially represented by a lawyer at this time, was “actively violating the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure” by either using a ghostwriter or, worse, plagiarizing another Motion to Dismiss filed by a lawyer known by Postle. While using ghostwriting in legal settings is not against the law, there are ethical concerns when a lawyer provides services without providing their name. “This case concern’s Mr. Postle’s representations he was honestly playing games of poker on his own when, in fact, he was cheating as such games with the help of one or more unidentified confederates. Unfortunately, it now appears his approach to this litigation is identical, as he purports to be a pro se litigant but is, in fact, having court papers ghostwritten by one or more unidentified attorneys.” The document alleges that the Motion to Dismiss the case submitted by Postle on March 25 was a “cleanly-drafted document, replete with citations to controlling law” in perfect format. That’s something VerStandig alleges Postle, who submitted the document under his own name, simply couldn’t do on his own without any legal background. The Motion for Sanctions then cites Postle’s relationship with attorney William Portanova who, while not formally representing Postle, was named as his attorney in an article in The Sacramento Bee. It compares the similarities between a Motion to Dismiss filed by Portanova in a totally unrelated case and Postle’s Motion to Dismiss, alleging that Postle either used Portanova as a ghostwriter or used it unauthorized. Citing numerous accounts of California courts discussing the ethics of ghostwriting, including a ruling that called it a “serious ethical breach”, the Plaintiffs counsel asked for the striking of Postle’s original filing and for him to essentially be instructed to file his own work or, if he has an attorney of record, to them be named and appear in court. At the same time, on Monday, VerStandig, representing poker player Marle Cordero in Nevada, filed a Motion for Alternative Service after alleging that Postle has “thus far avoided nine (9) separate efforts by a process server” as well as ignoring four emails and Twitter messages. In addition to direct contact, VerStandig reached out to and connected with Postle's mother to ask her to reach out to him to check his e-mail. Being unable to serve Postle through traditional means, VerStandig is looking for the court to serve Postle via FedEx to his home, via email and social media as a means that “will satisfy the rigors of governing law” and allow the case to proceed.
  8. The legal volleying in the Mike Postle cheating scandal continued this week as two of the defendants sent the ball back in the direction of Veronica Brill and the 87 other plaintiffs. On Monday, King’s Casino Management Corp., the owner of Stones Gambling Hall, and Justin Kuraitis each filed separate motions to dismiss the recently amended complaints filed by the Brill's legal team. This is the latest development in the case which began in October 2019 when Mike Postle, Kuraitis, and Stones Gambling Hall were the subjects of a lawsuit brought by Brill and what was then 25 other plaintiffs which sought $30 million in damages after allegations of cheating by Postle in the Stones Live cash games came to light. In March, Stones filed an initial motion to dismiss where they built their argument centered around the argument that the lawsuit "reflects the oldest complaint of gamblers – that their lack of success means they were cheated." In early April, Postle was sued in Nevada by Marle Cordeiro for $30 million in damages. Two weeks ago, Mac Ver Standig, counsel for the 88 plaintiffs in California and Cordeiro in Nevada, filed motions in both states accusing Postle of using a ghostwriter in California and dodging service in the Nevada case. In their latest motion to dismiss, Stones' legal team claims that Brill et al failed to "articulate facts or law to support their claims" in the amended complaint filed in late March. The motion points out three specific reasons to dismiss: gambling losses are not considered damages under California law, the plaintiffs failed to "identify facts to cure the defects" in the amended complaint, and that plaintiffs were unable to counter any arguments or citations made by Stones in their initial response. "Plaintiffs have already had an opportunity to amend to address the concerns raised by Stones. In 56 pages, Plaintiffs failed to identify additional allegations they could make that would state claims for relief. They should not be granted leave to amend," the motion reads. Stones claims the complexity of a single hand of poker makes it nearly impossible to determine whether a particular player would have won or lost a particular hand and that properly assigning damages is subsequently impossible. "Plaintiffs cannot provide an accurate picture of their likelihood of winning because of the multitude of independent factors influencing how a hand of poker unfolds. They do not describe even a single hand in any detail, and the act of describing such a hand would make clear the impossibility of assessing proximate causation." Stones continues to ask the court to dismiss the libel complaint brought by Brill regarding a tweet sent from the official Stones Live Poker account in the aftermath of initial allegations against Postle being made public. The motion asks the court to dismiss the libel charge because "Stones did not, as Plaintiffs suggest, make “a public statement – that Ms. Brill’s allegations about Mr. Postle were ‘completely fabricated.’” The tweet generically referred to “allegations.”" Lawyers for Kuraitis, the Stones Tournament Director who was also responsible for the management of the streaming operation, took a similar stance and also claim in their motion that California law prevents gamblers from seeking resolution in court to any dispute regarding losses suffered at a casino. His lawyers also took issue with Brill's legal team citing cases "from two centuries ago". "On hands that defendant Postle won; he was the person who was “damaged”, not plaintiffs. On hands that defendant Postle lost, plaintiffs would not suffer damages, and certainly not damages proximately caused by any alleged cheating."
