MP could sue for defamation right now if he wanted to I guess. Regardless; I suspect the easiest defense against such a claim of defamation is that MP became an involuntary public figure once the initial allegation was made, at which point there's a higher bar to meet when it comes to actually being defamed. "I was merely stating my opinion" is often a good defense for defamation as well, generally.

Now if you're thinking that MP might sue for defamation after a criminal trial that finds him not guilty; I can't see that happening, defamation doesn't work that way.

In terms of the current civil suit against MP; I guess if he wants to "fight fire with fire" maybe MP will click back with a counter suit for defamation. Anything is possible I guess.

The commentator makes an odd comment that "That's my computer". Does that mean they shared computers when working? Mobile laptop is where everything to gain access is stored??? This video is important because we see how the poker software works for stones. Check it out below.

That is really peculiar.
Firstly, it's Taylor Smith, and I agree he is checking that the laptop is detecting the RFID system, presumably with the Table Gfx software.
You can see Smith enter the comms booth half an hour earlier at 1:31:22. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/327032438?t=01h31m22s
He just takes the commentator's laptop without even asking! (I presume that the laptop belongs to the casino, not the commentator, and that the one that was previously being used in the peek room crashed or something).

P.S. That Oct 24th 2018 session of 5/5 is already labeled as a 'God Mode' session in the spreadsheet, but it would be good if a note and timestamp about the sightings of Taylor was added. The YouTube version is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn8d3GU6Njw

I think you mean half an hour *later*. So we see Taylor take the comms' laptop, that he then takes out to the table, which we then see on the game footage shown 30 mins later on the delay.

It appears he is looking at a specific card not reading?

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

Mods, this is written in the FAQ:

Q: But Postle doesn't always win when he plays
A: True. He has had losing sessions on stream where he plays quite normally. They seem to coincide with Justin Kuraitis being out of town.


This is only partially true, there are many episodes where Justin is present and Mike doesn't cheat. I wouldn't be surprised if this error made it to the lawsuit which makes a similar remark about John Doe.

Dont have a time stamp so can someone do it.

On the turn Postle rubs his cheek 11 times, the other 4 times and then 1 more for hearts.

He is signalling to moneymaker what cards to fold the river on.

On the river he makes a bluff which moneymaker quickly calls. They could be chopping it after the game.

But yeah def signalling in game from Postle. Someone clip it. Its insane
i agree. does anyone else think moneymaker was a shill and getting the money back at the end of the night?

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

has anyone mapped out his losing sessions? it could be a simple case of running into the top of peoples ranges and/or people hero calling him more.

Post a spot where he does this into a nutted hand. There isn't a single hand I've seen where Postle while cheating has jammed into a nutted hand, yet dozens of spots to the contrary.

“Preponderance of evidence” The burden of proof falls on the plaintiff. One must produce evidence beyond the balance of probabilities.

From my understanding, may or may not the evidence to consider as fact, as long as the produce evidence beyond the balance of probabilities. Correct me if I am wrong please.

I agree, I posted the hand to show he turned his hand into a bluff because he knows someone with 88 on that board should fold. I should have wrote Mike Postle got owned because a guy made a hero call.

Apologies. Yeah there's been a few spots where people have made questionable hero calls vs his river shoves, it's very satisfying when it happens.

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

Question for anyone that has played at Stones. How is the cell signal? Is it good? Is there no signal? Does Stones provide guest wifi?

Just trying to find out if Mike could use cell or if he was forced to use guest wifi from Stones if they have it.

Thanks

I don't know how to zoom this and try to see whether it is useful. Maybe if someone can zoom and find something useful.

PS: It have some good views showing he stand up, sitting back down and put his phone between his leg.

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

Doug has another new clip that makes it obvious something fishy is going.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh1UjP-UpX8

My question is why people still play against him?
Also I get the casino has no incentive to investigate(unless they can get sued for allowing cheating), wouldn't the gaming commission have some authority here?

Also it should be noted how far of van outlier his VPIP to win rate. It's similar Ross Hamilton's back when he had God mode with UB.

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

It cant be that these mods here are banning people left and right, with the only reasoning that they are not 100% their opinion.

I mean that should never be the goal. the whole point of a forum is to exchange opinions.

The mods here are clearly abusing the power given to them and I will bring this to the top of 2plus2 and to Matt Slansky.

I have heard only good things about 2plus2 but this thread here is a mess. And the mods are clearly doing a bad job.

Having said that, people are entitled to their opinion and they should not be afraid to say their opinion without getting banned. Again this is a public forum and it should be a friendly and pleasant environment.

Well it is not in this thread, thanks to a few moderators, I wanna name one here who is called R R I belive and he has a grudge avator. He is clearly abusing his powers, his posts are dumb to say the least, and threatening posters who are not 100% saying as he wants to ban them. you should be ashamed of yourself RR.

and again, not afraid to let managment know how u handle things here..

and to all people who were frightended bc of this guys to voice their opinion freely, youre not alone, and things will be done to end this..

cheers everyone.

ps. to as to innocent or not, I dont know, we have to wait and hopefully know soon

I was leaning towards guilty, but with this mob rejecting any other opinion it is no fun to watch this censored bs anymore...

Hmm, if he connected only over wifi, no common carrier, no wire fraud, no RICO?

Law isn't my expertise so I can't answer that one.

I really really doubt they would put the gfx server so it could be accessed by their guest wifi but... who knows.

Assuming its not on the guest wifi and he was using it, he would then have to use their wifi, go out to the internet ie to whatever isp they used, then come back in to go to the pokergfx server.
