Yeah, drugs and addiction really are a pretty good way of understanding it imo. Every hand itself is one isolated event. In the moment he thinks, well sure, why couldn't I go crazy with some great live read here? It can't be used as evidence of cheating on its own. It's just one hit! The problem is people lose sight/get addicted and do "just one hit" a thousand times in a row

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

Do the announcers have any potential liability if they suspected cheating and did not inform the players? What is the law here?

That's probably a bit of a stretch. Does Joe Rogan have a duty of care to MMA fighters just because he's an MMA commentator? I don't think so. But if an MMA fighter wants to sue Joe Rogan because Joe didn't tell a fighter about his suspicions that said fighter's opponent is "juicing", I guess said fighter could.

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

A dealer and player colluding against the house is bad, but I'd never thought so much about what a low mother****er you have to be to work at a house and help cheat poker players.

Card cheats are common as lice.

Stones person is far lower than Mike.

None. (I could come up with hypotheticals where an announcer could be liable, but not for that alone.)

Notice The chatbox on the right Stones Live Poker​:im a mutha flippin wizard thats how we see the cards
Kasey and Scott again are trying to tell the viewers about mikes cheating. The winnings are again reported in the Chatbox incorrectly.
The girl in the middle who played in this game is supposedly up 1k on the report, she makes a joke about not telling her husband(she was actually down money this session).
Notice the stream is labeled Veronica and Friends. Veronica isn't even here Kasey and Scott mention this at the end as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqq-...utu.be&t=15460 Again notice the commentary in this hand.

(Im quoting xenocide the orginal finder abover).

Guys this is crazy, watch this hand with the commentary and while viewing the live chat. Its unbelievable, “im a mutha flippin wizard thats how we see the cards”. Is typed out by stones . He says “we”. This could be taylor or Jfk. Probably Taylor. This punk is getting cocky! Not only has mike just made the sickest play humanly possible but his accomplice is bragging about it in the chat! Stones also makes a comment about the software pokergfx inthe youtube live chat 20 mins earlier. WTF WTF WTF

I just wanted to repost this one time from this morning.
Wow and we know that Justin controls that. Messed up.

Second link you posted didn't work.

I'd love to see an analysis of whether he is actually able to see his cards in this situation with his hat down so low.

I've seen them do similar stuff in Forensic Files with gunshots...

The second link is from the same video so nothing to be missed.

This whole scandal is so intoxicating because who would have thought someone could be such a scumbag for over a year. It would be one thing to just see the hole cards for a couple hands then stop. But this guy did it for over a freaking year and over 75 sessions minimum. I wonder how he feels on his drive to and from the casino each of those nights. You know damn well Mike is justifying what he does in his sick twisted mind. His interview in 2017 on his dream poker show reminded me of that twisted fellow from the tv show lost. Can someone find a gif?

He did make his ultimate “dream seat poker show”. He had the god seat. His dream seat poker show came to life for him in the most sickening of ways.

This story is just so intoxicating.

Ill say this, if Justin was in on it why did he post all the videos on youtube and twitch and keep them archived there? Wasnt he the controller of the youtube? Why wouldnt he just not post the videos? Why not delete the ones when mike cheated? Just makes me think the one who controls youtube and twitch is innocent and if thats justin then that is good for his defense.

He had to move to South Florida and play poker at the track.

Russ Hamilton Heckled in Gulfstream Poker Room


Billy said something to the effect of ‘tougher game when you cannot see your opponents cards’ and Russ snaps."

“‘You are a f_cking d_ck.... a f_cking d_ck. If you believe everything you read your are just stupid, just a stupid f_cking d_ck. You do not know what you are talking about, you were not there. You just read about it and think you know . . .’, says Russ with a beaming bright red face and the veins on his neck popping out . . . As I was packing my chips, a sweaty foreheaded Russ was so upset, his heart pounding so hard, that I swear I could hear the blood struggling to squeeze through his mayonnaise encrusted veins.”

But then at ~2:17:00 someone leaves seat 2, at 2:18:30 Mike switches seats to seat 2. When he moves to seat 2, he's very to himself, he never gets up, and his phone is never seen again. The only time he picks his left hand up is for one hand where he eats and that's it. He plays every single hand but one from this point on. He's absolutely cheating despite losing as he decides to gamble away $743 on the last hand with top set vs. straight vs. combo draw.

Specific hands as there are many spots where he's dick checking and playing perfectly. Don't wanna link all of them but they're at:
~1:36:00, ~2:03:00, ~2:13:00 ~2:17:00, ~2:22:00, ~2:25:00 (esp. funny). I'd stopped documenting at some point here. It's painfully obvious he's cheating.

Joey, as a PLO enthusiast, I encourage you to watch this if you want more evidence.

This is the funnest picture so far. A bomb pot but he's getting a massage so he sneaks a peak. and obviously he plays perfectly by betting fl/tu and x'ing river to pick off a bluff on a good run out.



Check Mike out at the left side of the screen at 2:53:02. He looks down, sees he's dominated by AA and sees one of his Kings is gone. He shakes his head and gets a look of disgust on his face...
The 2:22 hand it's like he has no fear whatsoever that anybody may notice him cheating. Clearly checks his phone, glances at his cards for half a second, mucks it. Extremely blatant, what an arrogant prick.
