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

Again in the PLO hand, its so obvious that he knows that the table isn't picking up all 4 cards.

See how many times he spreads his card back and forth over the sensor.

How could he know the table is faulty during the hand.

This is it. Well done Bourrc!

Can we stop. He's clearly cheating however Joey tonight has been on a strict witch hunt. He is taking things way out of context and trying to find hidden meanings behind everything. One example of this is he asked at least 6 times what does he mean by he was asleep for one third of the game? Clearly Mike meant he doesn't like o8 and because it was a 3 game mix he was asleep one third of the time.

I love Joey and think he has done an amazing job. I just think he and a lot of others are reading into things too much and trying to find a hidden meaning in every little detail.

His opponent does this too. Is it possible production told the dealer to tell them to spread their cards because they knew it was PLO?

I hope we can see an angle where the camera is on the dealer and he doesn't tell them to do that because I do think this is some of the best evidence we have.

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

Im shocked nobody has picked up on this.

When he gets in the booth the first thing he says is "What happened with that Omaha hand showing only 2 cards" He then states he knew the guy had the nut flush draw too. This means he would have either been told what was happening for that hand or he was able to watch it in the booth.

If he was able to watch it in the booth he would have seen his name. This means he wouldnt have been shocked by his name because he would have known during the viewing of said hand.

If you really think the fact that he gives money back is relevant, it's entirely possible he's doing it out of guilt. Imagine cheating your friends out of so much money 3 times a week for 2 years.

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

Another example where people are reading too much into things is the fact that after the PLO hand Mike goes into the commentary booth and asks why they only saw 2 cards. Yes this is damning but it's not a smoking gun like everyone is saying. He can just say his friend sometimes texts him hands like a lot of people who play on streamed games and told him about this. It's way after 30 minutes.

Postle should certainly have a fair platform to defend himself, same as Justin.
It's not a cherry-picked sample. We are looking at every hand he played on stream over a span of 14 months, which includes several sessions where he is not suspected of god-moding. Even with those sessions, his results are orders of magnitude beyond possibility.

js84, who compiled the 250k number said they erred on the low side, it's possible the actual total is higher. Here is the data again: https://ibb.co/kmVwv8t

I presume someone as serious about poker as Mike Postle keeps records, so it would be easy for him to dispute any individual sessions that are way off (because js84 broke it down by session). Then people can rewatch the stream to get the accurate total.

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

Can somebody explain what I'm missing regarding the plo hand?
Seeing as he was gone from the table 30 minutes later, that could have been when he "watched the stream" before going on commentary and talking about the graphics error.

If he watched the stream to see that error he would have known his name. He then becomes amused when he realizes what his name is when hes in the booth. So clearly he was told by somebody of this error, he didnt watch it.

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

Justin saying kinda fun to play not knowing what the other 2 cards are is the most damning evidence there is. Unless he meant "play along" like the commentators are playing along with the players.

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

Seeing all the evidence pile up against Mike what can actually be proven to show he cheated, Phone records? Another whistle blower? If we are waiting for them to fess up i doubt that will ever happen.

Esp if the people doing the real investigating have no idea how poker is played

you are obv right, but his defense would be he decided to watch the stream at 4:16 while away from the table.

Joey going thru it on stream now.
This tells me Postle had to make a difficult call not knowing he had the best hand as opponent possibly has A10 (since only the Ac was shown). Graphics show the check mark next to opponents name but Postle HAS TO CALL with a BOAT or it would look terrible. He was obviously not happy to make this call, right?

Yes. His name on the stream is SMFC. Reading into that as him sending messages to mean show me four cards is absurd. Not only would they have to have a predetermined shorthand for the 1 out of 1000 times that a PLO hand doesn't show 4 cards on the 1 out of 10 or however many streams they play PLO but also when he messages whoever he's messaging somehow it also changes his name on stream. You don't think this is reading too much into things?

It shows the check mark for who's winning with the 2 cards that are known for each player ie a6 beats Mike's 4x

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

Yeah I tried to make this clear in my original post. It is possible he watched the delayed stream before going to the booth and someone in the chat mentioned they may have it on tvs next to the table. Just strikes me as odd given the circumstances of the hand, that he would care about watching the stream on delay unless he knew in real time it was only picking up 2 cards and maybe was watching to see if his live feed was the same as the twitch stream.

Also his name SMFC has nothing to do with anything tough to see so many ppl looking into everything on Joeys chat lol.

Agree with everything you said. This hand is amazing evidence. People going off the rails in Joey's chat are making him look at things that don't matter and is taking up his time for no reason.

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

Mike knows SS has Ac6cxx but he could have A6Tx given the turn action - Mike leads turn when T pairs and gets raised by SS.

Mike is visibly pained having to make the call with T4xx. The god of poker who jams regularly with 9 high and 3rd pair, yet is pained having to call with a boat.
