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

As per earlier posts, a civil lawsuit filed on behalf of players who lost money in the Stones Live stream when Postle was playing may be in the works. It's premature to conclude that nothing will happen to the perpetrators beyond stained reputations.

This hand is my favorite one. Watch Postle on the turn. He makes top two and the preflop three-bettor bets into him for the 2nd time. Dream spot to get value from AA/KK, but not for Postle! He has his palms up for the sigh call before he even sees the sizing.
This clip is so good.

"God Mode Mike P." live tells: If he's pissed off and acting like he's lost, BET. If he's laughing in your f---ing face, FOLD.

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

Is it wrong that I judge Mike Postle's level of intelligence by the fact that he agreed to go on Mike Matusow's podcast?

Am I wrong to not assume that Mike Postle is a genius?

- he would either need to be bragging to justin(who brags about playing the nuts like the nuts), or know the graphic was wrong? How could he know the graphic was wrong, or the rfid signal was wrong?

The only reasonable explanation is that Mike was watching stream, and saw the hand come up, and within the start of the hand to the correction, contacted JFK to let him know what his real hand was. But why would he care so much?

Has anybody looked at the 30 minutes after the hand to see if he is texting on his phone to JFK?

No matter what, at some point i the ~35 minutes after that hand, he had to be in contact with JFK. Anybody watch this with a close eye and pinpoint possible contact moments?

There is nothing in the accompanying twitch chat from admin, unlike the 88/TT hand. I don't see how Taylor told the comms Mike had 89s. Which leaves the Q of when the change was made.

The commentary is absolutely nauseating btw
to clarify, Justin is standing behind Mike and seems more like a quick quip - certainly not a discussion of that hand. It's impossible to tell for certain though, as the camera is not on Mike obviously for the full 30 mins. He gets up from the table straight after the hand and is standing by the table, and seems to be chatting to another passing player. Justin walks back and forth (between his spot and booth?) several times in the ten minutes or so after the hand.

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

For all the millions that Mike Postle won online pre-2010, what does he have to show for it?

What kind of house does he live in?
What kind of neighbourhood does he live in?
What kind of car does he drive?

How many houses does he own?
How many cars does he own?
How many investment properties does he have?
What's the value of his investment portfolio?

Did he not say that he bought his first ever new car in the last couple of years?

Why did he call river? The allegations are that he knows the other player has KJ so his hand is no good to be calling on river with. Unless he's balancing his cheating.

Immunity from prosecution if full admissions made.

>0 Stones employees offered jail sentences.

Stones Casino fined millions of dollars.

He's too f****** stupid to balance his cheating well, either in his play or his mannerisms.

I think he would have been overlooked to join the MIT blackjack team.

For the same reason that he 4b/folds KK preflop vs AA instead of just open folding it. Come one man, think a little

A potential flush hit on the river. If you're saying it would look too suspicious to make a fold then I disagree. Maybe some would say it's nitty but I don't think that would lead to allegations of cheating.

bro, try just once to link to the point in time. Look under the video, there is a share button, click it. A pop up will give you the link, but also an option to link to a time in the video. Tick the checkbox, copy that, modify the seconds if need be.

https://youtu.be/P4KS_TixXx0?t=6750

Deb Wall is/(was?) very close to Mike Postle and had been a defender of his early on due to their friendship. I think like many of his friends, this has been a difficult time coming to the realisation of what kind of person Mike really is. As well as those cheated out of money, as Deb has been, there are many others suffering to varying degrees right now.

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.
So, which pc/ laptop has the host TeamViewer active?

If it's one in the booth all people in the booth can see the TeamViewer active icon.

He has made stupidly glaring folds with super strong (but 2nd best) hands on the river before, so that would imply you're right, but I think he just accepts that he has to call down with top2 in a 3b pot even when the backdoor flush hits..

There's no way he has the prepped hat on the left picture, I can't fathom he would lift his hat up if he has that

Correct. Second is from the one day he didn't wear a hat.

I didn't see any cheating after that either. He touches his hat in sessions when he isn't cheating as well. Besides that this isn't the hat suspected to be sketchy (the Under Armour one). Why go through the hassle of preparing multiple hats if that's a method he used?

Also on 5/29/19 Taylor is commenting while Mike isn't playing. On 6/1/2019 Taylor is commenting as well and this happens to be the only day Mike doesn't wear his hat, besides seemingly not superusing. There is a 100% relation between Taylor commenting and Mike not superusing (with half an hour delay). There isn't a 100% relation between Justin being abroad or commenting and Mike not superusing.

Taylor is guilty and Justin is probably just a gullible guy unsuitable to run a pokerroom.
very nice find
