Bart Hanson was here but he hero called Postle correctly lol. Off the top of my head I think the hand was Postle went 3 bet pre and then bet bet overbet with 72 on AQQ-x-T and Hanson called him down with JJ! It’s so satisfying to watch the hands where he gets hero called.

RE: this whole episode.... Joey continues to deliver to the community. (but fixed your post a bit).

I thought your post earlier about Sports Center piece was a joke. How did that come to be? How did they even found out about this?

p.s. regarding getting to bottom of whole thing. as soon as the gaming investigators show up with badges / questions and start talking to some with possible revocation of their gaming license (i.e. their livelihood) the rats will start pouring off the ship, and all will come out. Final findings/charges/fines etc will all be made public in minutes/reports from gaming commission meetings.

Mike and co-conspirators are hosed. here is a link they should check out until this thing blows over.

IF THIS SYSTEM RECORDS THE HH we can SEE if anyone folded the “updated cards” preflop (or if they were any of the burn cards) on review!!! Meaning Postle it proves postle lies about his holdings or the updated cards were made up by the graphics people!

This can actual PROVE they were colluding.

Go check post #2725 where Veronica posts messages she received from Mike (sent 9/29 I believe). He talks about how he was an online crusher 2003-2008 including busting Tom Dwan.

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

I haven’t read the whole message from Mike to Veronica, I was kind of listening when Joey read it out on his latest video.

I think the reason Mike will forever claim he is innocent is because we will never get hold of the evidence, namely his hats, devices and phone. He knows this and it might already be too late now for a search of his house to recover any incriminating evidence.

You can absolutely guarantee he will never crush a live stream away from Stones, nor will he crush any bigger game anywhere. And if Stones Live has a future, and if Mike has a future on the game, if he is forced to play without a hat, phone, etc, of course his results will show a marked difference to his God-mode sessions.

Because I was playing online all the time in those days, and I don't remember him at all.
I played cash games across all sites like 12hrs+ a day back then and don't remember him at all.

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

On a serious note, if you are close to Mike, you should probably try to reach out to him. I really believe the guy should be on suicide watch. Seriously...

As a single dad who also raised a young daughter by myself, this is going to be devastating for him. He's going from almost a "God" in her mind to being a cheater, a criminal, and may do time in prison for this. Thinking how this will impact her will be devastating to him.

I realize he's still in denial mode, but that's going to end soon, when he realizes he's all alone and nobody is believing his lies anymore.

I am not trying to excuse his behavior. He stole thousands and thousands of dollars from many people over almost 2 years, it's really disgusting. But we all make mistakes, nobody is without guilt. Yes, this is particularly terrible, I know.... I'm just saying that if you once considered Mike a friend, you should really let him know you will be there for him to talk.

Also, Mike, if you are reading this: get a lawyer asap, if you haven't already. Tell him the truth, everything. And then figure out with him the best way out of this. Don't do or say anything about this to anyone but your lawyer. You can discuss your feelings with friends, but don't tell them anything about this, it will only hurt you later. Especially don't go on any podcasts or talk to any poker players to tell your side of the story. They will tell you they believe you, that you only need to get your story out there, etc. They are lying. They are only exploiting you.

I know it seems overwhelming, but you can still do the right thing. You can fix this with your daughter, but it all starts with the truth.

He is admitting to tax evasion in these messages. Will be filing an IRS report on him.

I have no pity for this brazen criminal. He will almost certainly get off with less punishment than he deserves. We don't all steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from other people while laughing at their faces.

My thoughts and concerns are with the real victims, those that were cheated out of thousands and thousands of dollars.

I do not care what becomes of Mike POS Postle. Well, I do actually, but it’s probably best I not elaborate.

Great segment and work by that presenter. Loved the way he closed it at the end by asking if this guy is this good why is he not winning all the money in Vegas.

2000 posts ago I mentioned the IRS. I hope he goes down and goes down hard.

Folks, we will find the physical smoking gun here. Keep searching my fellow 2 plus 2ers look through the archived videos on twitch and youtube. We will find a time where a physical piece falls out of his hat or something where we can zoom in on his phone. We will find it!

He is clearly not intelligent thinking that telling us about his alleged success over 10 years ago will justify his recent cheating.

He comes across as a sociopath and a pathological liar.

The more he talks the more clueless he looks. Shuns the spotlight, plays live stream games and hams it up in interviews AMD has a game named after him. Crushes the game, doesn't move up in stakes. Long well thought out attempt at self defense in a group chat whereas someone that is being mass accused of fraud would be lots of things, levelheaded is not one of them.

Justin could easily be the same way. They may have been doing this in some version or another for so long they were smug enough to showcase. Lederer called himself the professor yet was not smart enough to know about segregated accounts.

There is a total lack of conscious in all those that are involved in this. It would be good to hear Veronica and the guy that hero called the JJ that posted last night ITT how they viewed the bts chemistry between Mike and the crew. Few would have a better feel for that.

It’s sooooo satisfying to see POS get hero-called on the river, I’ve only seen a couple. Was it Bart Hanson with the JJ hand?

In those hands, the caller must be like “phew, I was right” and thinking “no wonder he crushes if he’s always putting people in these spots”, but not realising he does it because he knows your hand.

Agree 100% about him being a psychopath. Absolutely no remorse for what he has done and insists on his innocence and now this thief and fraud is trying to play the victim card!

No, it was Taylor Carroll.

His on-stream name was "Hart Banson" as a joke because Bart Hanson was sitting right next to him.

we wont but investigators will. actual cheating devices are I am sure in a dumpster, but aren;t needed for prosecution.

Cant throw away text messages, phone logs, google searches, credit card charges (someone had to did buy cheating hardware, there were probably too stupid to not put on CC). Stuff in cloud lasts forever.

With other(s) having to be involved in setting up scam, hard to believe they didnt leave some electronic trail. they are toast.
