Mike Postle Poker Hall of Fame

In a stunning turn of events, the disgraced player at the center of the Stones Live Poker scandal has been announced as the latest inductee to the Poker Hall of Fame. The news comes out minutes after Stones Live Poker began — and finished — a thorough investigation into the matter.

Stones and Postle comment

A short statement was released on Saturday morning by Stones Gambling Hall.

“After exhaustive research, we have come to the conclusion Mike Postle was 110% not cheating on broadcasts of Stones Live Poker streams as alleged. Stones will not answer any further questions on the matter and we now consider the issue closed. Furthermore, it was with great pride to say we are looking forward to Mike’s induction into the Poker Hall of Fame this summer and the Stones Live staff responsible for administering our hole card technology is honored to be inducted him.”

BonusCodePoker was also able to catch up with Postle who said the statement speaks for itself while following: “I have always been completely innocent in this matter. At this point, I’ll be focused on this summer and having my banner next to greats like Russ Hamilton and Chris Ferguson.”

When told that the Poker Hall of Fame has neither Hamilton, Ferguson or banners, for that matter, Postle simply responded. “Hey, I just can’t wait to meet some of my biggest poker heroes — like Amarilo Slim and Johnny Moss .”

BCP would like to point out that while Postle did correctly name two Hall of Fame members this time, unfortunately, both of them are no longer with us.

Reaction from the poker world

With the investigation over and the Hall of Fame induction set, the biggest question remains “Is the poker community satisfied with the outcome and statements from Stone Live Poker and Mike Postle.”

“Yeah, the investigation says he’s clearly innocent,” said Ingram, who has been working on the case for 87 hours straight scouring over hours of Postle’s hands. “We’ve already pivoted from Postle programming and I’m stoked to be announcing that I’ll be sitting down tomorrow with 2007 WSOP Main Event third-place finisher Raymond Rhame for 18 hours.”

Doug Polk also weighed in on the matter. “Look, I’m Doug Polk and I’m satisfied with the investigation and statement. Postle is indeed just the GOAT.” Polk also noted that he is proud to announce he will sit right next to Postle at the Poker Hall of Fame induction this summer.

He’s also happy to reveal that Postle has been hired as a Senior Upswing Poker Pro “as the new face of Upswing” set to deliver weekly videos to the popular training service beginning tomorrow.
