Miles issued an apology on his Twitter account on Monday and posted screenshots of a lengthy letter addressing the situation.
I just wanted to respond to some of the things that were being said last night after my HU match with Johnny. I appreciate people being understanding and open-minded about a situation where we were both delirious and battling our ❤️’s out! pic.twitter.com/IKz7E0CiED
“I had a brief moment of weakness and lost my composure. I am a very emotional person. I LOVE this game with everything in me. I’m literally crying like a baby right now just writing this,” Miles wrote. “I know it’s hard for people to understand the pressure of this situation and that is no excuse for what I said to John following the hand. In retrospect, I do not believe in any way that it was a ‘slow roll.’”
Many fans argued whether or not he actually slow rolled on his final hand.
He (CYNN) did not have to slow roll that call though. I would be pissed immensely if i was tony miles… that’s basically rubbing it in. #WSOPFinalTable
There are others who stood by Cynn’s side and defended the champion by saying he did not slow roll.
Miles only made one Bluff the entire final table so when he Barrel barrels first tournament life anybody who thinks it’s a slow roll when he took that much time to call with King Jack is just a f****** idiot he was tired and wanted to make-sure!
Cynn didn’t slow roll. Several hands could beat him. The way that Miles played the hand it was a strong possibility he had one of those hands. Miles was tired and was in high stress situations for 11 hours. He reacted poorly but it looks like he realized that shortly after. pic.twitter.com/QkZRwwsKaY
I don’t know who calls what Cynn did a slow roll. Miles could have K-8, A-K, K-5. Also I don’t think people know what slow roll means. If someone said he was in the tank too long, maybe. But it’s for everything. No such animal as tank or slow roll there #WSOPMainEvent
