Because a great poker player winning & a roulette player on a heater are exactly the same thing. Martingale strategy FTW, I guess.

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

What one needs to bear in mind is that Postle has play from 2017 Stones, where he is a losing average player with nothing that stands out.

Yet according to him he was even by then a world class winning player against the best.

Suddenly in 2018 his whole game changed, and his results, it's weird, it is as though he knows what cards the other players have. It doesn't make sense...

So paying attention to his pre 2018 play makes his cheating all the more clear.

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

Can anyone that played on UB in the era that Postle did corroborate his claim that Postle is the most profitable player in the history of UB? Postle says that he was cheated out of something between 200-500k on UB and even factoring that in he was their most profitable player ever. Unreal this guys defense is “I am a God of poker”.

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

The only reasons he’s not crushing the biggest games online anymore is because online poker gave him blood clots. He’s also a great athlete in case anyone wondered. This guy is a special case of delusion. He really is reminiscent of one of these arrogant serial killers that are convinced they’re innocent despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.

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

How can Postle go with the 'best in the world' defence, while also claiming he'll play 45o/95o/49o etc for any amount because they're 'meaningful' hands to him...

Really? Probably should have just tried taking one baby aspirin a day and he wouldn't have had to steal from players to become a well known pro.

Those were the ramblings of a mad man. Whoever advised him to do that interview was not looking out for his best interest.

This guy just comes off as having a horrible personality. Shocked he was with someone long enough to have a kid and I'd be surprised if he has any friends or had any even prior to this scandal.

I'd be shocked if he has anyone to confide in or consult with other than his accomplice/s and I highly doubt they advised this

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

Joey Stream # 6 Live and amazing. Confirmed by Mike he is a GOD. He thinks he can play anyone heads up. **** you Mike. No one should ever play you again. You don't deserve another chance! You sir are a cheat who should at the very least crawl under a rock or better still go to prison.
Allegedly. lol.

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

I am listening to his interview part 2 with Matusow, and it is funny how he implicates himself when defending himself, with him complaining it is hard to find evidence of him playing in a human way... which is precisely the point!

I’d be amazed if Mike had an IQ>100, according to a quick Google search this is roughly the average American IQ. I’m not suggesting IQ is the end all be all, but I don’t think smart is a word that many people have used to describe Mike P.

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

His only delusion is believing the rest of the world is so goddamned stupid they'll believe him. He thinks his story is golden.

After Stones is cleaned up I'd like to see him play in the same line up and make all these BS moves with never an error.

In the average streamed session how many hands is he doing something outrageous, and how many hands total are dealt?

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

A quick summary of some of the more interesting claims Mike Postle made in part 2 of his “interview” with Mike Matusow.

-Postle is the most profitable player in the history of UB, which is impressive in of itself, but even more so when that figure includes him getting cheated out of an estimated 2-500k.

-Postle would still be crushing the biggest games online, the only reason he stopped is because online poker game him blood clots.

-He’s the winningest player ever at Stones.

-He referred to himself as one of the greatest poker players in the world, and despite trying to keep this fact on the DL for the past 15+ years, the recent allegations have forced him to prove this to the world.

-MP is willing to take on any player (besides Garrett) and his preferred format is HU. He’s willing to play 100 matches vs Doug to prove how good he is.

-MP is a great athlete, he mentioned he played golf but didn’t elaborate further.

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

Okay, so listening to the podcast, I have one thing to add.

Both times I've played the stream, he literally drove in from Reno to play the stream. He bragged about how many comped rooms he got. The first time he was bragging about leaving some chick in the hotel with a couple hundred dollars to go play slots.

So yeah, he didn't have to leave the stream to go relieve the babysitter. At least twice.

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
PC 484 offers up to three years for fraud by deception. The gaming statute doesn't have anything for cheating at poker. This would be a civil matter only, though it can definitely affect the licensee. The gaming code defines player banked games only as I read it.

Like I said earlier, this needs to go to the FBI. This is wire fraud. It's up to 20 years. The only thing to be researched is the method of cheating, if it crossed state lines. I would assume the hat trick was an apple watch with a sim. It is less clear if the TD just had access to the live stream if that would constitute interstate, but since the purpose of the stream was to entice gamblers from out of state to transact with the casino, even from the consumption of ads, I think that alone makes this a federal case.

As for civil remedies, this could be a class action of the victims. There needs to be a large damage awarded to discourage lax behavior in terms of player security. This case should definitely go into the millions. Players involved probably should hold off and not accept any compensation from the casino, even if it more than makes them whole. This case goes beyond just making them whole.

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

Cliff's on Part 2 of the Matusow interview.

Mile Postle is a Poker God!

And he think he could be vindicated by playing heads up against the best pros. That won't do it. This has nothing to do with
past online stuff or futures games.

This has to do with you allegedly cheating at the Stones Live stream game.

This is one of the most disgusting interviews I have ever heard. You have to hear Joey #6 but this Mike guy is disgusting.
