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

Kudos to mods for deleting/infracting posts we don't want in this thread (wishing violence/death on postle, mentioning his daughter, politics, etc.).

There is enough to talk about without bringing that stuff in here.

I thought this analogy wasn't that great because I could decimate many NBA players shooting the basketball from various distances. That doesn't make me an NBA quality player.

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

Also to add, a certain person that is being looked at closely, had no technical skills, but was trained to run everything (pokergfx etc) in the first quarter/early second quarter of 2019 and that this person was very secretive with their personal laptop.

The easiest play here is two VNCs working in concert, one from a computer that is known/allowed to access the main "server" running pokergfx, and then a second device, like a cell phone, VNCing into that "authorized" computer. In that case, there's no evidence on the main pokergfx server of an inappropriate login.

I haven't watched the NBA in many years but my opinion is that a player that never misses any shots would, at the very worst, be a fantastic role player on any NBA team I've ever seen.

Thanks bud! I had thought I lost this account forever after the 2+2 compromise, and I didn't take steps to re-instate. But just this morning I tried the password recovery and it worked... LOL, I'm an idiot.

Doing well, appreciate the kind words.

Hi Mike! I'd be willing to wager on you "decimating" NBA players.

Wait now you're talking about him cheating on his own. That's even easier to justify.

He may think that people at higher stakes are more likely to catch on something is wrong. He may be afraid that he'll be nervous at other casinos/stakes and get caught this way. Hell, for all we know he justifies the whole scam to himself thinking "ehh it's only 1/3, I'm not really hurting people that much".

As for the original statement that he DEFINITELY 100% should move up when he's crushing this hard and isn't cheating. Yes, it's unlikely he'd stay at the same stakes but not even close to all of the other utterly ridiculous stuff that's going on with this guy.

Also, funny story... I had not spoken to my brother in 5 years, but he texted me about this and he saw my name on a YouTube donation for Joey, and we had a conversation.

Postle's cheating, bringing families back together. Hope his defense attorney sees this.

The analogy doesn't apply to you bro. Scott van Pelt said if you never missed a shot in a pickup game.

And lol at you being able to decimate NBA players from any distance.

This is so good. Dont let this video get lost in the sea of posts.

This also explains the choice of seat 2. Camera can't pick that up

*edit - Since not everyone will sit through the video, heres a GIF that has the key point... If anyone wants to make higher quality - its 33:12 to 33:22 in the video.

Maybe.

I think it'd come down to shot release speed, the actual range they never miss at & defensive liability.

The National Resources Division operates domestically, that is correct. The point I was making is that the CIA is not low enforcement. It’s intelligence gathering.

Just wondering, has anyone collected all of the videos where Mike played? It would make it easier for people to look through them without browsing the whole Stones archive?

His Phone-Device on the rail at this very moment would scan the cards an tell him via Bluetooth on his Bone-Headphone.

I wonder if such an anaomaly apears on pictures of other cheat-streams to.
He's pushing the bone conduction outlet into his temple to hear it better. The technology still isn't great, especially with ambient noise in the casino. This may also explain why there is a mark on his head, an indentation.

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

This is so damaging, such a black eye on the game. It's not even a question of if Mike is cheating, it's blatantly obvious.

Stones needs to resume the Live game, have Mike play in every game for the next month and implement a NO HATS, NO KEY FOBS and NO PHONES, especially pat down Mike, check his ears for microscopic listening devices. Then let's see how "God like" Mike runs.

If and when Stones resumes the Live game Mike will most likely never be allowed to play in it again. Which is too bad because we will never have true closure. He actually might even be able to just walk away, maybe...

It's unfortunate that he wasn't physically caught in the act, for instance, if a player seated next to him were to suddenly grab his phone from his crotch during a hand and see what was on the screen. Without this type of smoking gun evidence this will be much more harder (but not impossible) to prove. First would be to confiscate his cell phone records, the phone companies have every text message that you've ever sent, deleted or not. So if he had an inside accomplice and they texted about this scheme at least this could implicate the conspirator and help to force a confession.

It is so good, and you can see the reason for crotch looks, and the most suspicious way to store your phone, ever.

Honestly, if you were being relayed info on your phone, what's the best way to keep your phone? Just like Mike has it.

It would be pretty reckless of him to open carry the phone while it was on this display. I am amazed that nobody in the room ever picked up on it.
Indeed. Or, say, a CCTV camera at the venue.
