Mike pulls his phone out and is seen texting. Then he puts his phone under his crotch with the messaging app still open.

To me, this confirms without a doubt that this was at the very least a two man operation. Looks like somebody in the back was simply texting him info. They may have gotten more sophisticated over time.

WHO HAD ACCESS TO HOLE CARD INFO ON THIS NIGHT?

Edit: I should have watched for 5 more seconds. He pulls it out again very soon after, so I guess it's not conclusive that this was the method.
Has anyone established what type of phone Mike has? Based on the bezels it looks like an iPhone. It's important because if it's an iPhone, and the presumed insider feeding him info is on an iPhone as well then all the texts likely were routed over cell data rather than SMS, meaning there wont be a record of the texts at his cell provider. However if either of them have an Android phone then the texts would be over SMS and so there would be a record of them at the cell provider. This assumes they used a standard SMS messaging client rather than one which communicates over data, such as What's App, Signal, etc...

If Mike does have an iPhone you can tell whether it used data or SMS by the color of the text bubbles - blue for data/iMessage and green for SMS.

That's just a guess. He has no technical background while others have. He might have very well let others handle the technical side without handling the admin account himself.

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

Might've been posted before, but seriously, you have to watch this if you haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh1UjP-UpX8

No, there's no concrete evidence in here. But if you can watch that and any part of your common sense tells you he might not be guilty... I think you lack common sense. It's completely fair to say this doesn't prove his guilt on its own (and isn't needed since there's a myriad of other damning hands), but as a human with a brain, I'd love if someone could offer another explanation. Pay special attention to the end part that Doug focuses on

I wouldn't waste your time commenting to trolls/or people who don't understsand your line. Anyone who watched the footages and ive wasted too much of the past week can see you are one of the few in the game with a pulse. I am curious though of a few things...

Who invited you to play this game?
How many sessions did you play?
Was Mike in every session you played?
Did you think during the session that anything was shady?
How about after?

From Joe's #2 video. He does something with his phone(unlock it?) then looks straight down at it, scoots in, and then makes the call. JFC

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.
THIS MIKE AND HIS TRIPS TO RENO SOUND LIKE HE WAS IN ON A BIG SCHEME WITH RUN IT UP. THIS "LIVE" POKER NEEDS A WHOLE RE-VAMP

I think the most likely theory is that there are 2 to 4 people involved, otherwise the money would have to be shared over many sources

I doubt that anyone can replicate that all blue screen that was posted earlier ITT on an iPhone. Heís ripping data from a rigged deck. Itís the most common way to cheat. In all the videos I have observed there are FOUR different keyfobs in the last 10 months. He has rfid rippers in that little black bracelet (freezeframe 2:10:15 in investigation vid #4) and the keys . When heís not cheating with the keys he leaves the infinit keys that are real on the table when he has the bracelet. These rippers relay hole cards to his headset and/or phone . There are multiple methods, (why would you always do it the same way) Honesty itís much simpler than everyone thinks.

WHY DOES THE TECHNOLOGY KEEP BREAKING DOWN IS IT A SYNC ISSUE BECAUSE IT FORCES PPL OUT OF THE SYSTEM TO BE SAFE AND SOMEONE HAS TO KEEP RE-SYNCING IT DURING THE CHEAT?

CNBC says he refused to return their calls or comment. Definitely a guilty sign IMO.

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 donít know who t bone is but his instincts canít 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.

It was my first week in Sac when that hand happened.
No one invited me, I knew they had a stream and that was my 2nd or 3rd session.
Mike has been in nearly every stream Iíve played.
I didnít think anything was shady, all I thought was ďman this guy owns me in every spotĒ
Although when I rewatched the stream the next day and I saw they corrected his hand to 98ss, I thought it was yet another mistake because Iím 100% sure I saw a diamond when he mucked his hand mid air.

That's my entire goddamn point. Joey is the one who's seen enough that he should know without a doubt that the guy is a thief, and he's still doing this "he might be a God" crap.

Doug knows the guy's cheating from less specific evidence because he's better at poker, he can interpret the insane Potripper vs. Postle graph (which is the deathknell on its own), and he has common sense

edit: Seriously. Potripper on UB vs. Postle graph. That it's. That's all you need to see. Only possible argument is that the stats don't reflect all play, but it reflects what we see on stream. The idea that Postle lost this shitload of money that wasn't seen on stream is NOT A POINT IN HIS FAVOR. IT'S YET ANOTHER MASSIVE STRIKE AGAINST HIM. How do I need to explain this to people?
I'm trying to be as open minded as possible while also enjoying myself over 20+ hours of live streaming while staring at ****ing Mike Postles face and watching him stare at his crotch while destroying people left and right. I wasn't convinced until I heard the interview w/ Mike the Mouth. The plays he makes are still God like and it's easy to see why.

Everyone has their own approach to how things should be. The guy will remain a god of poker or out of line for the rest of my life.

The only live commentator I respect is the guy who works for Triton, that guy knows what hes talking about, but hes commentating on the biggest cash games to date in the biggest pots to date. The dumbass commentary can all be chalked up to the company culture that Justin has created. I do not think that commentators are involved bc you do not need them to be involved. Why give a guy a piece of the pie, if all you have is that they justify his crazy plays, its just not enough to make them complicit.
Uh but I never said anything about their commentary isinuating them as being complicit... I'm saying they are idiots, barring a few individuals but thank you for agreeing with me. I think their commentary on Postles hands and the cult like following they garnered for him is a great example of the 3 brain cells sputtering around between the gang of them.

100% is a good percentage. Thanks for posting. You're the type of player that made the Mikes of the poker world losing players a long time ago.

And to the poster you were originally replying to..... have a think why changing Mike's opponents cards would have proved even more problematic than the need to do it to Mike's own on one of his most ridiculous plays?

Fascinating, especially since the producer of the show manually changed the 8d6s to 8s9s

I thought it was a badass bluff tbone.
Impressive that you were able to notice his river frequencies are completely ****ed and had the balls to stick it in his face.

Better price on bluff and no one whose not superusing ever re-bluffs here. Very nh.

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

I have to repost this, because I've yet to see a single defense of it, or even acknowledgement of it, and I shudder to think that well-meaning people who might be friends of Postle might put their entire reputations on the line to defend this scumbag who gives no shits about you because he's probably a sociopath

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh1UjP-UpX8

This is confirmed guilt in the court of common sense. This is my second time begging for another explanation. Haven't received one. Weird. Might be because there isn't. If you watch the whole video closely and have an unbiased mind, you'll never hard-defend him again. You won't, and you can't. It's too absurdly and laughably obvious that something fishy is happening.

There was lots of acknowledgement on this in the first 50 pages - pretty much everyone here is of the opinion Postle is guilty - the question is what tangible evidence can be presented to nail him and what other clues can we gather? Also it's highly probable he had AT LEAST 1 other accomplice so still lots to solve.
