Stating that he loses at an incredible rate before every stream before winning at an unprecedented rate during every stream is probably the dumbest defense possible.

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

The more i think about it the more sick this makes me. Him stealing 250k at mostly 1-3 to 5-5 hes breaking people who the money matters more to. If he cheats some random at 1-3 for 5k it probably hurts them financially more than. Im not saying it woulda been fine to beat up berkey cheating but saying he probably ruined someones life atleast someones month.

For a guy who destroys poker for 600bb/100 this guy sounds really slow.

"How do you reply to all this accusations"?
"It must be Hatred"

We're looking for a substantive reply to the substance of the charge, not for him to undermine the integrity of the accusers.

Ah yeah, thank you so much. Unless they just get updates on chips stacks throughout the session but since we've not heard that that's done I'll just assume I'm wrong.

pre-stream sessions are the new untracked euro sites.

Per Mike Postle, anyone that knows him, knows he is the least greedy person they've ever met. He covers tabs and pays people when he wins big pots off them. wtf

"Before the stream starts, I actually typically hand out about 20k to the homeless on the way to the game-- .. so I am NOT actually up that much for these seshes guys! "

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

I'm listening to the matusow podcast now. Has anyone double checked the profit / loss accounting of the 250k spreadsheet? People here seem to be misinterpreting what he's saying. He's not saying he lost tons in the first 15-30 minutes. He's saying they walk around and get the starting chip count during the 15-30 minute warmup session while they're gambling lower stakes and before they finish adding on. So their actual starting stack when the show airs can be significantly different from the displayed starting stack on screen. His rationale sounds possible, as I haven't really checked. You'd have to go in to the beginning of a stream, compare the # showed on the screen then count his chip stack and see if it's different.

Maybe even just look at every hand he plays over the session and track what his profit/loss is for the session and see how many reloads there were to get a baseline for how much he's reloading.

If his overall wins are significantly lower, I'd be significantly less inclined to think he's cheating. The whole case against him cheating hinges on his overall winrate and stats, and not him playing individual hands strangely.

He wins so much he gives half of it back. So he really doesn't win that much.

Joe and Doug are only exposing Mike for “clicks”, and to be on Sportscenter. According to Mike they only chose him out of hatred because Stones tried to make him a “reality star”. Really top notch defense.

All the 1-man job theories ignore all the evidence against JFK (out of town performances, poor investigations, graphics changes for cards that were never tabled, JFK going into chat to verbally reinforce the graphics change etc). The 1-man job theories get a little wonky on the tech side then leave the JFK behavior completely unexplained.

JFK mirrored the stream, then JFK talked to the bluetooth hat. It's that simple.
This would easily be detected by a technician. You are sending gigabytes of data over a dedicated port to an end point located in the casino?

If true, the senior technician must have known. This is not (just) the work of a Producer.

He pretends like he doesn’t know about the Joey and Doug stuff, then he is about to recite the accusations perfectly.
