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

I’m curious if one person who listened to this “interview” came away thinking MP is innocent. He’s not doing any favors for himself. I’d have infinitely more respect if he manned up and apologized.

This Postle defense for himself is pathetically sad.

Mike can't be sober or do any research for his biggest interview for his podcast. Incredible

This is classic deflection. Allows him to not discuss the actual plays/hands/behavior, etc.

you can't apologize for something like this unless you're also willing to have your bank accounts emptied and your ass in a cell for 3-7 years

The mouth said he watched less than 1 hour of the footage. He basically knows nothing about this.

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

If they're reloading and it's not tracked then the chip counts on stream wouldn't reflect how much he's added on. That means the stream chip counts only track how much he's won from other players. His defense here is actually proving he's cheating.

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

Mike Postle says the wins/losses aren't accurate because of the reporting system for chip counts.

I've not seen Stones Live track wins/losses on stream though so I'm not sure what wins/losses he is referring to.

Does he not realize we can just figure out exactly how much he won by simply watching the streams?

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

125k is exactly half of what he’s accused of winning. Convenient 50/50 split. I bet he doesn’t want to have to report 250k worth in taxes.

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

So is he saying that lets say he starts with 1k and they play for 15 minutes. other people get up to 2k. so he reloads for another 1k that we think are profits but are actually his own money?

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

I thought Mike was being smart on twitter. Getting this guy feeling safe to come on.

I even thought the first few minutes was just Mike massaging Postles ego and letting him feel safe.

But wow. What a waste of time. How can Mike have such a golden opportunity and waste it allowing him to continue with his lies.

It sounds like if an opponent wins a hand so that he has $500 more than Postle, Postle might pull a $500 chip out of his pocket and add it to his stack, and this wouldn't be noticed.

Yeah, he tries to cover the other players stacks at all times obviously because he'd be a fool not to, considering he's playing on God mode.

If it wouldn't be noticed it wouldn't be on the chip counts throughout the stream meaning the chip counts on stream only show how much he's up from his initial buy in anyway.

No, think what he is saying is that pre-stream, it's typical for him/others to blast off for about 2-10k or so, eg then he reloads for 1-3k or whatever by the time the stream starts, so he's in for whatever that total is. That doesn't make a lot of sense though, because someone should have a LOT of chips when the stream starts....

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

The easiest way to do it is this...

Have access to the card info.

If someone is watching the cards in real time on a laptop, it is easy enough to do a screen share to someone through skype or something else. The person watching the cards realtime then can communicate to MP. Easiest way to communicate with no ear piece is with a bone conducting speaker device like the hat. This is why he presses on his hat when he is having trouble hearing. This person is either just feeding holecard info or even plugging it onto snowie or some other realtime solver.


The bone conducting headphones... no one next to a user can hear it. It works by vibrating like a speaker but against your head, your head amplifies the sound without anything in your ears.

All that is needed is access to the hole card info and sharing it to someone that can relay the info.


Dont even really need to plug into a solver with basic poker knowledge.
