Legitimate point, but if true, Justin should move to Los Angeles tomorrow and give acting a shot, because his performance is astounding when interviewing Mike, if he is in on it. Way too much risk in bringing up these hands like this. Justin likely innocent, and probably feels like a sucker after being betrayed like this.

Definitely not conclusive that Justin is in on it but it is pretty insane that he wouldn't figure out something is wrong plus conduct an investigation that saw nothing wrong plus had many players express concern to him plus he says Postle is his favorite player plus is on chat right away to explain RFID errors when Postle does a ridiculous play.

I mean in the one hand they show where Mike loses AQ vs AK Justin says how do you win this one? Mike says I don't think I did. At the end of the hand Justin says he picked that hand to show Mike doesn't always win. So he lied about not knowing who won the hand. I think he put it in there to try to take a little heat off Mike. Sure he could be innocent but I'm not buying it particularly when Mike's losing sessions are when Justin is not around and I think it was brought up that Justin and Mike have been friends for years.

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

IF Justin is in on it, I could see them coming to 2 conclusions regarding interviewing:

* They regularly interview people and thus should keep status quo with Postle especially considering they name shows after him hes a marquee player.

AND

* If they talk about hands, they might think of it as a way to absolve their guilt. "Look he explained how he's so good"

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

If I was Mike I'd be pissed that my accomplice was asking me all these questions on stream lol

Like can you **** off dickhead, I'm trying to make us both money. Don't ask me if I feel guilty.

Great job standing up and exposing this potential cheater. Any chance you can talk to Chicago_Joey? He's currently livestreaming. I'd be interested on the operation of everything at the poker room, and the security protocols ect.

The tune changed with us, starting with Mr Toodles post. Joey is for sure reading this as he is broadcasting, and watching Justin grillling Mike makes it hard to imagine that he is a guilty man acting with those natural reactions and emotions. If he can fake that, then I would love to be wrong about his innocence, just so I could appreciate his acting skills more.

Makes sense that Mike crushed online. The only reason he wins live is because of his amazing live reads. Those two things go hand in hand.

These are different issues. They think the interview is productive towards honesty but the 3-bet river bluff is counterproductive towards honesty.

They are clearly worried about things but context is important.

Hi Justin.

Thing is: you tried to cover up the initial investigation and defended Postle for no reason on Twitter. Why would you do that?

there was one hand - he had 87 on 789q3hhh, something like that, opponents cards were unknown and he made a bad river value bet and lost

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

How do you know he tried to cover up the investigation? Do you know as a fact he was the one conducting it or influencing it in some way?

This is the first time someone has pulled off a scam using RFID at a casino in poker AFAIK. Everyone is of course going to be dumbfounded and presume innocence. Obviously an independent, competent third party investigation should occur. I would really like to know what went on in the first so called "investigation".

Its like an O.J. Simpson argument. I mean if O.J. was innocent, he has to be the unluckiest guy in the country, especially after his B.S. conviction and sentence in Las Vegas. But F. Lee Bailey and others still to this day make statements of absolute innocence. You cannot take a person seriously once they make statements like that. Mike the Mouth has no credibility on anything ever, if he is willing to go public with ridiculous statements about Mike Postle's potential innocence. That issue has been settled, like when Darwin settled some issues on evolution.

Not that i have a super strong opinion but i tend to agree with this. This interview papi is streaming Justin doesn't seem complicit to me. Also i doubt its his job to run the stream the guy is a casino manager its the job of a employee lower on the food chain to input the details of the stream graphics surely.

Other crazy thing about Matusow is that he was one of the bigger losers in the UB scandal, and he went into great detail about how much it messed up his life when he was losing every session, both monetarily and emotionally. The old school live guys just never seem to amaze me.
