Yes at 2 hours and 9 minutes into joeys investigation number 4. He is literally pointing it at the table when he has K5 clubs. People you can literally see the small grey camera band. He messed up because he usually wears sleeves. 2 hours 9 minutes that is the bracelet that is the camera clear as day. Compare it to the YouTube demonstration of the bracelet this is the smoking gun people. Joey kept saying what is different. What is different is he is betting with his right hand and hiding his left wrist with bracelet under the table all night as opposed to him normally betting with that hand when he is using his hat method. There is also a camera in his hat . That is why he looks down to aim the camera. I’ve been up 24 hours studying this guys please look into what I’m saying.

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

Stones needs to provide recorded footage of exact time stamps when Mike is taking down a big hand, and location of specific employees on floor, what are they doing at exact lead up. If said person is out of site, and not in view of any camera, you have a winner.

Yeah no one else can hear the bone conduction speakers unless they are attached to your skull. Zero sound coming through.

Anyone ever listened thru a wall or a door? Those are vibrating but not making noises you gotta put your head up against it. It's kind of like that.

I'd rather have him openly speaking vs a tough guy act to chase him away. Cops act like your best friend when they first start to talk to you.

Anyone trying to get someone to talk gets a lot further being nice than attacking right away.

Yeah, let Postle rattle on for 2 hours and just dig the hole deeper and provide more evidence against himself. What an idiot he is to do a podcast. Even if he were innocent (0.0000000001% chance or whatever) he cannot help himself by speaking publicly.

I've been very open to the idea of that cheating device that reads cards out loud, and them sending it to his head. I made a bunch of posts yesterday being all mind_blown over it saying I think that all makes sense (the James Bond style cheating), in conjunction with him having holecard info in his phone.

If he does have that cheating device, then that's the information that is relayed to his headphones, and he has holecards in the phone between his legs.

It really does explain many things; like how godly he runs in all-ins. And the need for the headset in his cap. Also: that bracelet he had is really ****ing sketchy. Postle doesn't exactly strike me as the kind of guy who wears a black tight bracelet half-way up his forearm for fashion, you know. I think he's running the combo-mega-scam: Holecards in phone relayed from RFID room, card reader into headphones. With the accomplice who works at the poker room it would be easy for them to mark the deck of RFID cards for the bond-hack-thingy (because that's how it worked, right? You mark a deck? Or is it a custom deck?) - the RFID cards are not swapped since they are expensive, so would be easy for an insider.

Yeah he is probably pushing down on his hat/bone conducting headphones because he has trouble hearing what is being said.

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

Just a simple observation guys. I suspect he is playing a ton of hands preflop because it is sometimes easier to communicate what your opponents have postflop. In the sense that if only 2 opponents are postflop it would be so much easier to relay that info vs relaying the info of 8 other players preflop. Just could be one reason his ranges are so wide like 9 5 off pre and why he raises 72 and gets 2 callers. Because its easier to cheat postflop then pre just because of the less amount of opponents equals less info to relay.

Psychopaths think like that; that they are grander and smarter than anyone and they thus can't be figured out or caught. It's been the case with many murderers etc who decide to talk to the police, to their own detriment when they would've gotten away if they just had stfu. Their ego won't allow them to be quiet, they want to talk their way out of it like they've always done in every spot in their entire life

Heaps of people complain about sound leakage from them eh:

Annnnd then there are the downsides, the main one being leakage. Sound leakage. As in, other people can hear what you’re listening to.

When you get down to the technical aspects, bone conduction headphones are really no different to regular headphones. Instead of a vibrating membrane that’s designed to get plugged into your ear canal, it’s been tweaked to be pressed straight against your bone. But it’s still a tiny speaker, and without being plugged into the closed environment of your ear canal, noise gets out. Walk down a busy street wearing Aftershokz and no one will be able to hear what you’re hearing, but queue up for coffee or squash into a tube carriage and suddenly everyone’s got an opinion on whether Shaggy’s greatest hit was "Boombastic" or "It Wasn’t Me." (It’s "Boombastic" and don’t @ me.)

this makes sense. the 72o vs JJ hand would be a pretty easy fold pre. a few people assumed that if he knew the flop AAQ was coming, its a profitable play. more likely he just splashes around and does what he wants and then on the flop (or after being reraised pre)he finds out what they have. less info to transmit and still alot of a value.

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

Yes I believe that he is paranoid about the hokey bracelet that’s why he keeps his left hand under table that whole session. He knows that it might draw attention and is rightfully paranoid. That and the keys are simple rfid cameras that relay info to his phone. This is the same thing that has happened in other cases and as we’ve seen anybody can get their hands in this stuff it’s not difficult. I think this simple common cheating method is what was happening. The guy is a known swindler according to his brother he was probably ecstatic to find these devices readily available. But in the back of his mind he knew the bracelets risky. It is almost always concealed and for good reason https://youtu.be/etBIjFw1NiI

How is this any different? The maths of this are equally undeniable (if not more so). There's no way you can understand poker well, look at this evidence, and have any doubt at all, let alone reasonable.
You're right. In general people don't really understand circumstantial evidence and assume it's some low level of evidence that doesn't stand up well in court. For a crime unless there's eye witnesses etc then the evidence will generally be circumstantial but that will be more than good enough to secure a conviction.

Some solid insight in this podcast from Berkey, as he's got a lot of inside info about how the rfid works, editing works, played with him, etc. He has great insight on that 86 to 9s8s "hand malfunction". Halfway through and highly recommend it.
