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

Russ Hamilton was caught red handed stealing 25 million dollars. He has faced no criminal charges as far as I know. Do you really think they are going to bring criminal charges against a person with purely circumstantial evidence against? If you are hoping for justice in this case possibly a civil case will be successful. I wouldn't hold my breath, just settle for black balling this guy from ever playing again.

Gumpnstein's video is absolutely amazing.

If MP were just slightly smarter, he would have had another phone on the rail during his cheating sessions.

This is the hand which makes me believe it is deeper than just Mike and some rfid reader. Someone on the production team has to be on this as well.
Hello all I’m new here and this investigation has me intrigued...

I have read a lot of thread but not all. We all can agree that mikes cards being wrong is suspicious because it makes his plays make more since like meekly folding a boat and a nut flush. However, has anyone considered that changing opponents hole cards would be an even better move ?

On the hand quoted - Tbone only has a 69? He leads out pretty big on the flop with just a gutter, then bets out again on turn with 9 high, then on river he tries to bluff the most unbluffable player of all time with 9 high?? His instincts are so wrong that he bluffs of like $2500 in a 2/5 game against a player who always has it and has the nut straight?

I don’t know who t bone is but his instincts can’t be that bad right? Watch his body language doe he seem like someone who is just totally bluffing the whole way? Nope and he mucks face down.

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

In the stream cast on October 11th 2018. At 2hours 47mins and 35secs you can clearly see the position Mike keeps his phone, it´s not in his lap it appears to be underneath his thighs. Sorry for no link I´m not as tech as some people.

When I initially skimmed through the session from December 17, 2018, I didn't notice any crotch-staring, or extreme god-moding. Postle folded pre quite often, lost some pots, and won a big one when he rivered a boat and got bluff-raised by someone else.
Then I saw the ridiculous bluff-raise with AQ on the river when the lawyer binked a weak pair of 7s.

But what happened shortly before that obvious Godmode hand?
He was superusing before the headphone swap, take this hand i.e. https://youtu.be/4pSUbMEXHGM?t=3764 How could a swap of the dealer headphone be related anyway?

Also whenever Taylor was commenting Mike wasn't there or superusing. I have seen no evidence that Lance is involved whatsoever (let alone 'more evidence').

People need to stop comparing this to Potripper. Hamilton cheated on a poker site that was completely unregulated and not bound by any US criminal laws. There was no legal online poker licenses in America at the time and 0 oversight.

MP cheated at a physical location, in the United States, and under the roof of a licensed gaming facility subject to 100% of the regulations of California laws.

FWIW - They do make privacy screen proctectors for phones. They make the phone look BLACK unless you are looking at the screen from a specific angle.

I am definitely biased and looking for exculpatory evidence for Lance. He stopped producing the stream in (edit, sometime between March - April) of 2019, for at least one of two superuser streams May 20th and/or June 1st, he was out of town at my son's graduation, and then was back in town for all (maybe a few days he was still out of town) of Postle's inability to run in Godmode.

I don't want to get into too much detail, but there is no love-lost between Lance & Justin either. The chances of them working together is about the same as the chance of Postle not cheating. That doesn't exclude either one, for sure, and again, as biased as I am towards Lance it makes complete sense to look into him for sure, trying to be as objective as possible he can account for a lot of weirdness in the broader sense, that others cannot.

T-Bone is a GD badass. I wish he had shoved river so he got to scoop the pot.

Anything helps so this is definitely information that makes Lance less likely to be involved(and perhaps our time would be better spent looking into others first). There's likely some confusion between the 2 Justins(I personally didn't realize there were 2 at first) but some clear correlations seem to be 1. Justin's computer needs to be there and 2. Taylor can not be commentating(most likely needs to be in the back) for the superusing to happen. It's even possible that M&T are involved and put something on J's computer/are using his credentials in some way in which he's none the wiser.

He won't do it. He can't do it.





1 - He calls a 3bet pre flop with JTo oop (2 overs)
2 - He calls a small flop bet (backdoors)
3 - HE FOLDS TO A REGULAR BET ON THE TURN WHEN HE HITS TOP PAIR

These actions can't coexist within the same play. There's no logic whatsoever.

There is no poker player in this world who would take these lines and fold the turn when hitting top pair.
This hand needs to be explained. Makes ZERO sense, especially since we have seen him call down with 3rd pair and ace high no draw just to bluff later.
I think this hand is the most obvious of the cheating that I have seen. Somebody please forward this one to matisow, NEED TO HERE HIM EXPLAIN THIS ONE

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

You need postle
Then guy in backroom
And then commentators seem to be in on and make him look good clearly but shouldn't be vital for the cheat

So just because he was out of town doesn't mean he wasn't in on it

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

Yeah I don't think we have enough to talk about this Lance guy.

Taylor is the number 1 suspect for being the inside man.

1. It was him who changed the graphics in the 86/98s hand. The commentators specifically mention it is him who relays that the graphics are wrong.

2. In the absurd bomb pot where Mike calls off with T3o on T88hhxKh v QJ, the commentators are going on about that hand for a while saying. Taylor suddenly pipes in from nowhere saying it wasn't that much to call. Why on earth is the graphics guy so interested in correcting the commentators.

3. Taylor was also in Vegas during some of his non God mode sessions.

Michael Buble's post is damming too.

Do we have any info on when Taylor started on graphics? Could it be that he only moved into this role in July 18?

Was Lance on the production team? I guess anyone on the production team is worth looking into, but the more people involved, means more money is being split, and higher risk to all involved. If I were doing this, which Id preface by saying, Id never do, Id want as little people involved as possible, or the minimum amount of people required to pull it off.

To me, that means Mike the player, Justin the floorman, and Taylor the graphics guy. Lances name was thrown around as the guy making memes, which I dont see how memes, however dank they may be, could be required to pull this off. Maybe it helped creating an image for Mike but Justin could have just asked him to make it.

I'm pretty sure Im missing some details with how much Lance's name is being brought up.

It's the commentators who seem to control that so I don't think its them. Just something 'fun/banter' that they were told to do.

But yeah whoever made them/came up with that idea. Wow.

Stones or whom ever at stones that started the stream had to have done it with this "plan" in mind... Start a stream, don't blow it up at all, setup an inside player to win every chip while getting suckers to play. Profit?

quick little GIF. Postle laughing in your face right after he forces you to fold AQo no flush draw....

This guy is beyond the pale.

It is really poor taste to belittle other players after they lose especially in cash games... Why anyone would play on a stream where the commentators treat players like comic trash I don't understand.

Good spot on that hand. Definitely seems he superused there. (He gets out of the way once he realises he has no shot at winning).

A few pages ago, Lance was pictured talking to Postle at the table in a Godmode session. All that does is confirm Lance was sometimes in the building when cheating occurred. I think Lance is crucial to the evidence, in that he can prove that the superusing only happened when Lance wasn't running the stream. e.g. Lance would know if he handed over the controls to Taylor. Lance's diary could also show that he was at work (in the secret booth) for several sessions when Postle didn't cheat, thus implicating whoever got in there whenever Lance was not.
