I noticed this as well. My thought was he receives the information on his phone and turns off or Closes notification, then sets phone on table to Hollywood " OMG WHAT SHOULD I DO" and then the hero fold that is imminent comes. Again, the only time we see his phone outside his possession is significantly into the hand where he ends up folding when it appears he turns off the message. These moments are priceless. It's too bad he scammed real people of real money. I wish this was a movie so we could laugh about the moments.

Stones investigated and found nothing... so it’s not faulty hardware or hacking. So you guys are basically accusing the stones live stream owner for being in on it. Again, unlikely considering what they have to lose.
Wrong. Veronica said allegations have gone on for some time now. This has nothing to do with Berkey.

Congrats on “winning” $17,000” that night thought. You played true to form.

God mode, GOAT, Worlds best holdem player. Ever.

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

favourite part of Joeys stream was when he had 6 8 off suit and after shoving over a raise, somehow the booth guys hear that the reader was wrong, seeing Joey lose it was hilarious. I was laughing quite a lot at when Mike was trying to explain his play, usually mumbling something about, "well the wine was just kicking in", or "I folded top pair because I had just taken a shot", usually alcohol was used to explain his play, or saying he had a read on his opponents hand after seeing what they actually had.

Commentators must be in on it too, the shock when the guy hits the straight flush to his nut flush and the announcer is like "unfortunately it looks like Mike is probably going to lose". lol

Which is Rich? I hope not - I love that guy. He is also the only guy to beat Mike and he did it twice!

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

Realize that basically all the INSANE hands Joey posted come from like two sessions. This guy has played dozens and dozens and dozens of sessions on stream lol. The material there is...
I started going through way older sessions and it's basically all the same story. 10-20bi sessions every time. Same crazy folds. Same razor thin perfect betsizes. Same blockerbet/folds close to every time he's pipped. Peeling gutters in 3b pots but check/folding when he hits because someone made a flush (real hand)

Remember guys no cheating was discovered. Anyone who took a few hours to look at the streams would have to logically conclude that everything is on the up and up.

Nothing to see here. Justin Kuraitis has assured us. Mike Postle is just that damn good.

For all those "god mode" sessions there are ton of sessions where laggy plays don't work, you run into big hands or "sheriffs" at the table and end up down 6-7 buyins.
That being said, by no means i am defending this guys. Some of those hands are very difficult to explain. 88vsTT and AxddvsT8dd hands are not as crazy as 76o hand. Jamming into two players with uncapped ranges on the T53J3 board is ****** insane. Folding QJ on QT8x board with 2 flush draws possible is also batshit insane, especially considering that this is exactly a spot where he is looking to steal the pot against a pair\ missed draw combo. Even in showdown monkey poker this is just a bad fold unless you know your opponents cards.
Question to those who play with him in non-streamed games. Does he also keep his phone near his crotch or this is just what he does when stream is on? We are all creatures of habit and this is a very particular habit that probably wouldn't change from game to game\table to table.

He doesn’t play in non streamed games. He racks up as soon as the stream ends. He won’t play with same people off stream.

All info already in the thread.

If they aren’t careful, they’re gonna allow one person to ruin the entire Stones poker room. I also don’t think it’s in Chris Moneymakers best interest to defend this guy. Too musk to risk.

No, sorry i got the first hand mixed up, thought it was the other hand he used to defend himself on twitter where he lost to his actual friend.

seems like the best way to beat mike is to have a middle/weak strength hand and hope mike will raise you or donk bet into you because he is trying to make you fold

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

Just read the whole thread... How is that scumbag not buried in a desert already? He's 100% cheating and I'd bet my left nut that Justin Kuraitis (JFK on the stream) is involved too.

Also the RFID is rarely (if ever) wrong except in big pots involving Mike. So many coincidences!

F*ck that. I have seen more than enough. He is clearly cheating. The fact this is even a discussion is bizarre.

All thats missing the proof which I have decided I do not need after seeing everything I have seen...
Yep this (and I'm completely unbiased as I've never played there and don't know this guy).

Why in this thread the majority of his defense is mounted by new accounts / low-post accounts while all the damning evidence against him is being presented by older accounts?

Look at Mikes Facial reaction when he coolers his opponent. Pretending to be shocked. must see TV
Ya it's pretty bad and the fist bump after with the guy he coolered is beyond cringey.

Depending on the range, most likely the data is transmitted through WiFi. An unsecured AP in a casino environment is extremely unlikely. And the network and network security team have to be involved in order for the data to get from point a to point b.

The point I’m making is it’s next to impossible for a 3rd party to hack into this. Mike is just good at poker at runs hot... or the show creator is in on cheat. If Berkey and co think the the shows creators are in on it they wtf are they playing in the first place?

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

I'm pretty sure it's a combo of buzzes on something strapped somewhere on his body and his phone, hell he could even be using phone vibrations, a text and it bus, that means call, two quick ones means a raise,
he mainly relies on the buzzers but has the phone for backup.

That's why he's not too worried being suss with his phone cause if he gets caught he just puts it down and show goes on, plus I didn't see it all but are there hands he crushes where he has the phone or in view

Obvious cheat.

PSA: don't play with him or at that casino. If you catch him in the act, keep it old school and punch him in the face.
