Mike Postle faces another poker cheating lawsuit
Poker vlogger Marle Cordeiro launches a second lawsuit against the poker player
The case against poker player Mike Postle is getting bigger, and the number of people suing him for cheating continues to grow. A popular poker vlogger, Marle Cordeiro, filed a lawsuit against Postle, claiming that he cheated while playing with her during cash games at Stones Gambling Hall casino, the same location mentioned in another lawsuit against him. The same lawyer that is representing all other plaintiffs, Mac VerStandig, will be representing Cordeiro as well even though the lawsuit was filed in another court.
Cordeiro’s lawsuit was filed separately from the other plaintiffs because her residence is in Las Vegas. VerStandig explained in a 23-page letter to the United States District Court, District of Nevada, why his client is seeking justice against Postle. The case started back in September of last year when Veronica Brill accused Postle of having cheated during Stones Live streams for over a year. Once she made the public accusation, several other members of the poker community began investigating the claims, and several people concluded that he was cheating somehow as he was always making the correct decisions right on the river. On top of that, he had an improbable win rate while playing those live-streamed cash games.
Cordeiro played against Postle one session last year while Postle was a regular on Stones Live. In the complaint, filed on April 4, VerStandig makes some severe claims against the defendant. “Mr. Postle’s winnings on the Stones Live Poker broadcast, and his correlative play of poker, were so exceptionally outstanding as to lead the games’ commentators to note his seemingly mystical abilities on numerous occasions, and to lead Stones Like Poker to produce various graphics portraying Mr. Postle as a deity-like individual imbued with omniscient powers (with one such graphic conflating an image of Mr. Postle and an image of Jesus Christ),” was written in the complaint.
