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

Justin is almost certainly guilty, but even if he wasn't directly on the cheat, he is still guilty of job negligence and 100% deserves to be dragged through the coals on this. His job was to ensure integrity of the game and due to gross negligence the players he courted got scammed for thousands.

This whole "Justin is maybe just naive about poker" when he runs a game at a cardroom and is responsible for its integrity is a joke. If you're a chef, and people get food poisoning at your restaurant, being naive is not an excuse.

The question is whether Justin is a chef who poisoned his patrons intentionally, or accidentally. Either way he should be blacklisted from poker and hopefully face jail time.

Nice finding.

I'm a firm believer that both Mike and Justin have appeared in this thread at some point.

1. I've watched plenty of interviews with Justin interviewing Mike and it always seems to have an over the top reaction from Justin. Would he really be that excited for a crime he's committing on air?
That really doesn't mean much. Part of the job of the commentary (including Justin) for a stream like this is to create a fun environment for the viewers and hype up their big star. They don't have high stakes games like LATB. They don't have GMan, they don't get Esfandiari or Hellmuth playing on their streams, so they don't get those big names they can make clips of. So they sold Postle as this incredible player, whether they knew he was in on it or not. Look at all the silly memes they created.

Justin's over the top reaction is selling Postle in my eyes. Look at some of the other commentators. I've seen Veronica, Chris, and Brent (and probably others, sorry if I missed you) have a complete WTF look on their face when he makes some of his plays, because they don't make sense. They're job is to commentate and make a fun stream, and even they don't believe what is going on at times.

Still don't know 100% it's possible to change the graphics on the feed as it's broadcast.
Again, look at Ryan Feldmans twitter. He produces Live at the Bike. He knows the tech and the system.

He says that its impossible to be changed after the hand was played.

yep, he didn't just allow cheating to go in in his room, he actively covered up the cheating and claimed that the allegations were false and made up when it was beyond obvious to anyone with a brain that they weren't. that makes him guilty.

''The recent allegations are completely fabricated''

Whoever posted this has to be guilty also.

Was it Justin?

Occam's Razor, folks. No one is hacking rfid. Postle had access to the live stream, probably via something like TeamViewer. That is super simple to set up and explains everything. There is no magic keyfob, no bone-conducting hats, no one whispering in his ear. There is no custom software or self-developed app. No text messages.

The simplest explanation is a phone and inside access to the live stream.

Try it next time you play poker. Keep your phone in your crotch and sneak a peek at just the lower-left corner of your screen where the hole cards are shown. It is very easy to be discrete.

And if anyone sees, it looks almost like the delayed stream, which is easy to explain away.

The simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

It's been verified that Justin was the one running the 2 Stones twitter accounts until yesterday.

Sounds good but it doesn't explain the head rubbing.

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

Reading through hillbombers posts ITT it is eerily similar to the writing style and information posted in those Postle text exchanges.

I have only done a few trades on here but thats because I am not a forum guy. I have many reputable refrences though including a bunch of big name pros. PM me for details.
Do these big name pros include PokerHo, Shawn Rice, jennifear, brsavage, and leggggggy?

He has to be in it.

Reason is: He had no incentive to defend Mike so sharply and abruptly.

Why would he do that?

He is either the most dumb person in the world (i doubt it) or he is desperately trying to cover up something.

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

I'm not convinced Justin is in on it but he very well could have been just going to Mike to tell him that he changed the hole cards. This way both he and Mike can keep their story straight and Mike isn't surprised when the hand is played on stream or says what he had before the stream aired.

I dunno maybe Justin is just super gullible tho lolol.

Spot on.

It's pretty easy to find out who Hillbomber is at least supposed to be with a simple google search. I'm sure someone knows the real person and can reach out and find out if he posted this defense of Mike. Beyond the results of this series (which matches up with what Hillbomber said previously), there weren't any other obvious connections between the two.

It isn't a whisper in the ear.

Multiple people can hear, you can see the dude next to him is interested in whats being said.

Also Mike is the one who seems to be talking the most, hence he's the one doing the explaining.

Justin. Looks like you better give your lawyer a call and follow through on smashing faces bc the truth is slowly showing itself.

Also if you are in poker and also the content producing world you HAVE to be thinking of how to make this into a FyreFest style documentary. Netflix loves this kind of stuff, and as we saw from the short Fox piece, if told right then it can be easily broken down for the non-poker audience.
