Watching this hand made me angry, I hope he gets what's coming to him. I feel bad for the people who lost money.

One problem with our justice system is that I don't think the judge can order the players to be repaid out of Mike's pocket? Worst case scenario for him only is that he gets to play cards in jail?

Hello, I think I can remember two cards and do not not need to recheck nearly as often as he does. So damn suspicious. He does a one steamboat check of the cards at the start of the hand and a six steamboat check after the flop.

Im making 10-1.

Also most of the time they seem to be at behind his huge stack. Have you ever tried to keep your car, house etc keys in pants pockets? It's annoying.

In this clip they look like an ordinary infiniti keys. Move on.

Just didnt make sense to have your TD doing this task and you frequently see Justin walking around the floor. Why was Mike only able to cheat when Justin was present? I just assumed Justin's replacement would have access to the control room on these nights and they couldn't run the risk of him finding out about it. But these last 2 pieces of information, Taylor being in Vegas with Justin and the stream where Taylor replaces Justin in the booth (and Justin presumably goes back into the control room to take over his job) on a night where Mike was superusing, makes it all the more likely that Taylor was in fact the third man of their operation.

Also to address a few of the comments I've been reading over the past few hours,

4) It was also mentioned that Mike was superusing on 1/7/19 when Justin was in the Bahamas. While Justin deleted his twitter, we can also confirm he was in the Bahamas that time through his "SoberVlog" on youtube. I skimmed through a little of this session and are we sure he was superusing here? He wins $4k but as has already been established, it is not uncommon for him to book big wins when he is playing fair. I saw one hand where he tried to steal a multiway pot on the flop with 7 high no equity vs top pair and then gave up.
Yes, he was superusing. I went into watching that session expecting him to not be superusing because I already knew Justin was in the Bahamas at the time. I've been going through a lot of sessions to determine which ones he is superusing and which he is not, and I can confirm he was superusing on 1/7/19.

re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

It has got to be communication through some kind of device... I really think bone conducting speakers in his hat. Makes the most sense... Seeing him press onto his hat is what you would do if you were having a hard time hearing such a device. Someone is either feeding him just card info, or realtime strategy once the hands are plugged into snowie or some other realtime solver. This is why he tries to see flops, turns, and rivers, without getting all in. He shoves when he knows no one can call.

I think this is the worst one for me.

The acting on the river is amazing.

Lon there just doesn't know whats going on.

Kasey is used to seeing this nonsense so is just used to it and after the hand brings out the memes.

I am 99% sure that Justin is the brains behind the memes. Just imagine the mind of someone who does this from players who he is stealing from. The guy is a legit sociopath.

Also why in the hell does he recheck his cards like 4 times but that 4th time he does it nice and slow so he can see something in his crotch. Again 38:45 ladies and gentlemen. 38:45

My last bump but this stream needs to be looked at thoroughly. Just watch wow

If you had a simple hardware switch to turn off the phones backlight it would make it less obvious you were actually using the phone with peoples quick glances.

They basically created a poker cult where Postle is their god.

Or just cover the whole phone with your hand and move a finger to see the 5% part of the screen you need to see the hole cards
