Then why would he go to the effort of changing the hand to 8s9s if he's not worried about anything?

Yes exactly. I might be willing to make a wager that he's not found to be guilty.

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

so why can't they cheat when justin isn't in town? his stand-in isn't as incompetent?

why don't they cheat when he's in the booth? he already knows how insane mike's plays are

Justin seems so oblivious and just happy there's a guy with such a reputation in his games. Doing hand history review on stream with your accomplice and is pretty stupid but then again theres no logic going on in these ppls head, just FEELINGS.

You're right. The demeanor difference between Mike and Justin is night and day.

Everyone loves the KK fold pre. My favorite hand is where he takes KK against 3 opponents with two Aces on the board.

Im getting the same vibe as well watching the stream. Justin looks like hes fangirling over him. Justin either way needs to be fired. He is either cheating or most incompetent floor ever.

this whole operation is pretty psychopathic so I would not rule it out.

Looks like ChicagoJoey has changed his tune and now thinks Justin isn't in on the cheating.

The hand that did it for me was the 67 flop with gutter on 2 club board vs 2 flush draws. They both brick their draws and he randomly donk jams when board pairs low.

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

I just can't see any scenario in which Justin would do all this to Mike if they're partners on cheating in his own game lol

it would be completely ridiculous to interview him like this.

Yeah the more i think about it the more i agree. But also consider justin is in on it and sees the play and doesnt tell postle to calm down and lose some back. If he was in on it and thought that the play wasn't this obvious he may be dumb enough to think an interview is fine.

Maybe it wasn't his idea. They interview players from time to time so it might have been odd not to interview Postle.

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

Plus, how does Justin have time to be feeding him all the hands at the table? He has all the duties of a poker room manager, right? That's his job? I assume he has to be busy doing stuff most of his shift...

Has anyone looked into streams where we can see Postle's hand but an opponent's hand doesn't get captured on RFID? Would be interesting if he doesn't go into god mode in those instances.

Might have thought they needed to get some explanations for the ridiculous plays before others start questioning it. Plus an interview can help reinforce the idea that Postle is just a great poker player.

Also Postle super used everyone every hand....not something a smart cheater would do.

I imagine Justin would sport a far different demeanor. Also Was he forced to look at the hands they did? Wouldn't he just not look at any hands and ask him basic questions, or talk about other people's hands? I dunno man, how can a poker room manager who's top dog be forced to do something like this... just make up an excuse that you're busy...

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

This is real money being stolen. I just cannot believe that Justin would put Mike to the test on these hands in front of everybody if he was in on it. You are risking the Golden Goose. It sure looks like the narrative may have to change, to where Justin might actually be innocent. But then again, there are things that are troubling, like did Justin tell someone that the games would be good after the WSOP. At first that looks like it may be incriminating, but there is also a quite reasonable case to be made that it was just a true statement, not having anything to do with Justin working with Mike to scam.

I'm not seeing the smoking gun with Justin. If I had to bet, I would bet not guilty on Justin at even odds. With Mike I would bet my whole net worth to gain two percent, assuming I could press a button and the truth would be revealed. The Justin bet would be for a non material amount, but if I had to bet I would bet not guilty. That's how I see it as of right now, having read the whole thread.

He needs to have an accomplice that has lots of free time and isn't supervised...

If its happened im sure he just folds. Whoever hes cheating with has to be dumbest person ever to not tell him to tone it down.

"Do you ever feel bad about doing this to people?" This is a question that was asked by Justin. I don't think he goes into that territory as an accomplice lol

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

Can anyone outline for me the qualifications the dealers need to deal on these casino's? If they get suspicious, are they obligated to sound their concerns? Are they tied to a contract clause of no tell or the like? Seems to me a good dealer would be seeing this?
Or is it don't ask , don't tell?
