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

Imagine making bet with mike 6 months ago that daniel negreanu would know who he was before end of the year. This is so huge and i think its just beginning.

Is it posted anywhere whos up what lifetime on stream? I think we really need to start looking at anyone else beating the games. I don't think we should just look at the ones playing absurd ranges pre either. If a good pro decided to cheat this way they would only use the knowledge in huge spots and could fly under the radar for all time. I think they had to feel cocky after months of this and straight printing why not add another superuser in the lineup.

He can be sued in civil court for damages. That's how they got OJ. He wasn't convicted for murder but he lost a civil lawsuit against him from the families of the two people he murdered and had to pay up a lot of money.

It was 3 way versus two AKs. 41% of 9k is 3690. Or an avg profit of 690. Not peanuts. And it adds to his "God" persona, which he loves.

The likely explanation for why he was able to superuse while Justin was in the Bahamas was that unlike the trip to Vegas, Taylor was still in town and not with Justin

I can’t get over the 8s/9s presto change-on hand. Taylor ran over to the booth to tell the announcers the cards were wrong while Justin ran cover in the chat. That was all totally insane

I think it's been established by this point that he was just super super greedy.

+6k if you win -3k if you lose at 41%. If they are running it twice a chop is a win.

That puts the other two with AK at 29%, not guaranteed, but a winning play in the long run if you know the hole cards.

All that is left is for Mike to wear a wire for an interview and end up in the bathroom talking to himself Robert Durst style. "They've got me now" "It was that stupid 54 hand idiot""Why'd I get so greedy".

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

Mike steals a 4K pot on the river with a 14.5K shove with K high busted flush draw into two players. Pocket pair and another missed flush draw. This might be one of the most profitable move in poker. I love how common these are. Literally if someone stole this much money from a Convenience store they would be looking at 15-25 years.

Yeah but sorry I’ve never had the opportunity to superuse, I can’t see other people’s hole cards and run outs and if I did I might play different , wouldn’t you?

41% 3 ways on 2 boards all day long. The outcome over what from his perspective is forever. GOGOGO - 41% 3 ways on 2 boards. Literally an ATM at that rate

One of the best things about seeing his opponents hole cards is that he can gamble in spots like this. Gambling large amounts of money is fun! I'm not convinced this was just about money for Mike. I think the fun aspect could have played a role (he likes playing lots of hands and clearly likes to gamble) and the ego aspect is most certainly part of it. Wouldn't surprise me if feeding his ego was more important to him than the money.

This hand needs more attention and is unbelievably egregious. There’s some insane ones like when he has 88 vs 1010 or the 45 vs AKx2 or the bomb pots but this one takes the cake, id encourage everyone to watch ASAP. It’s one of the rare hands where you can pretty much deduce without further evidence or information that something’s very wrong.

Sorry...

54 = 41.52%
AK x 2 = 2.14# to win / 54.21% to Tie

Taylor definitely is or at least used to be apart of the Production team, and is also a dealer.

Is there other hands he plays like this , I didn’t see all the streams but from what I did see he didn’t flip to many times...
