Then again, lol live donks
One guy (who had K J straight and didn't get paid when Postle just called river with his Q T two pair) was convinced he was cheating after that session and complained to ... management. I think that was the start of the phone ban thing.

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

People in this thread talking about him serving 6 months in jail for this crime??

If (admittedly a BIG if) it is proven in a court beyond a reasonable doubt that he stole the amounts we are talking about, he will be, and should be, doing a lot more time than that . I’m guessing something like 5-10 years. And that goes for any accomplices too. This is major crime.

And if it is found that the casino was in any way in on it, or even negligent, they will be in a world of hurt too. Depending on the circumstances, massive fines, or even closure wouldn’t shock me.

Six months????? LOLOLOLOL

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

Mike Postle on the Stones Livestream: "I waved a stack of cash in front of a Vegas security guard and mocked him for his minimum wage job."

Mike Postle on Matusow Podcast: "I'm a humble guy who never cared about money."

His personal story is as full of **** as his poker story is, and he's delusional enough not to realize that WE SEE THROUGH YOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE IT'S RECORDED ON YOUTUBE.

The solution is not "Postles gets to challenge all comers headsup" which is his delusional wish on the Matusow podcast. IF he manages to get incredibly lucky and dodge prosecution, the poker community needs to make sure this guy and JFK never gets to step inside a cardroom ever again.

Good point.
He also doesn’t want positive attention but has done multiple interviews and only play on stream.
So many holes in his story.

Hey in this clip where he tells the bb to show his hole cards his keys are different than the two prior images of his keys posted in this thread. The Infiniti keys are grey the buttons on this one are black https://youtu.be/O1Z_IvWUCAg?t=1562

I'll remind you of this one as well where he apparently seems to be obsessed with a guy's cards not being scanned. At first he thinks it might be his connection and does the hat tap adn a wtf glance over to the booth nearing the end of the hand. Allegedly. almost figure we don't have to say that anymore.

https://youtu.be/QzL4uf6qlao?t=18825-


And Joey you are so damn entertaining. Girls and pizza. lol.

Part 2 He claimed to know every single live tell and to be the best player in the world. Amazing. This rambling is crazy, but apparently he will play anyone HU.

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

I didn't know you were allowed to use cell phones while in a hand generally. Certainly with a live stream it should be more of an issue.

It is sort of amazing they thought they could get away with this with all the hands shown on the Internet.

I am sure ownership and top management would not want this sort of thing going on, but it might be lot of money for low paid staff.

Totally amazing he claimed he played those junk hands because of some association with the numbers. What professional player would do that?

Did anyone else know that Postle is the most profitable player in the history of UB? (according to Postle lol).

The amount of arrogance and just outright delusion this man possesses is honestly astounding. He’s ready to play Doug HU over a 100 match sample size.

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

The way he brings up the burden of “I had to put on a show” almost sounds like an admission of guilt.

When you look at it all it's astonishingly similar to Ted Bundy. Totally different crimes but extremely similar personality.

Ramblings of a delusional opiate addict imo.

I'm sure all these pros are super excited to play him heads up at 1-3 live.

But then there was this hand: https://youtu.be/4pSUbMEXHGM?t=5586
When the lawyer binks a 7 on the river, Mike looks so pained that even the commentators remark on it, saying that the 7 is basically a blank, so how does he know? The lawyer barrels, and eventually Mike tank-raises with AQ high (which seems ridiculous) to make the lawyer fold.
Maybe this (Dec 17, 2018) is a god-mode session after all.

I agree, except Ted was exponentially smarter with a much higher IQ, but they totally share some personality traits.

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

What the **** is Mikey going on about investigators dont claim the suspect committed the murder. All investigators do that. When they have enough evidence they will attempt to get the suspect admit. This helps avoid it coming down to evidence in court.

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

Postle is putting together a team to prove his innocence. He said he’s going to put together a video to “show he’s human, plenty of times on the stream”. He’s convinced this will prove his innocence. “Great players are allowed to go on winning streaks”. Now he’s comparing his style of play to that of a roulette player on a heater. It’s amazing that he won’t address any accusation and is just talking about how great he is and how he’s one of the worlds great players (he’s said this multiple times).

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

Trip report from a quick walk through of the poker room: about 60% the crowd I'd expect right now.

Thought popped in my head, "Holy **** it's 9 o'clock Saturday night? I'd swear it was Tuesday."
