If you are not able to profitable call any two against maniac fish 500bb deep when you know he had AA profitable does not mean at all that everyone is as bad.
You're the ****ing ****** here pal.

In all seriousness, does anyone know if JFK or any other suspected co-conspirators have made any uncharacteristically lavish purchases since this started? If they're greedy enough to not punt a few times to keep their cover, I'm willing to bet they've been blowing it somewhere.
Its been reported jfk had bought a tesla in past months. Not sure exactly when.

Not sure if its relevant or not but there is proof that JFK is a recovering alcoholic. His Youtube channel is full of vlogs relating to him trying to get sober. He wiped his Youtube clean just a few days ago tho. That's kind of strange don't you think?

Very nice if I could get my poker confidence back. Of course a huge amount of variance in these. Made some good ICM plays I'm happy with anyway.

Yup! You can also get all in pre with 54o 3 way deepstacked and be an equity favorite if you’re better than your opponents.

Last comment I am replying to you. When I said "I don't want to give information out for free", is not because I coach. I do not coach and I never would even if someone paid me. The reason why I said that is because I personally have never payed a dime in coaching and some of the strategies/mathematics I have learned in poker took alot of studying/time.

Johnny Chan won the main event back to back in 157 and 167 person fields. That’s been accomplished many times in tournaments with fields far tougher than the ones he faced.

I always thought it was assumed Archie Karas was cheating. He was arrested fir card marking a few years ago.

He also has another youtube channel called “Mike Postle” as well. if people are reviewing youtube chat comments from the live streams keep an eye out for any comments he may have made in the live feed chat.

I just can not understand hate against grinders. If you play and love it make 100k$/year is that somekind of nightmare? Only 300/600 crushers can be count into professionals?

Are you serious? Can anyone confirm? It's just like in Goodfellas when the one dude bought a pink Cadillac after a big score.

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

I’ve also seen a couple logic deficient arguments on this thread.

1) Postle’s tournament winnings prove he’s one of the best players ever because he won $500k.

I know players with millions in tournament winnings who are bum-hunted by good players, including multiple bracelet winners and even a WSOP player of the year. No one knows how much you spend on tournaments, only the few times you win. But good players remember the hands you play and how you played them, and that’s how they know how good you are.

2) JFK is defending Postle because he’s a fish who can’t understand how strangely Postle was playing and therefore isn’t his accomplice.

This scandal has brought terrible publicity to Jason’s employer, and now an expensive lawsuit. If he was genuinely fooled by Mike he still would have cut bait long ago to protect his employer. Instead all of his behavior has been to protect Mike and deny any possible issues, which helped this scandal mushroom out of control.

A manager who wasn’t conflicted would have made a more open investigation, and would have at least suspended Mike from the stream to protect the casino from any possible liability. Only if you could 110% show Mike wasn’t cheating would you let him back on. Mike doesn’t matter to the Casino, and they can suspend him for any reason, and any evidence of possible cheating is a all you need.

c) The visible frustration of the PLO hand were the live feed was only picking up two cards.

d) The changing of the cards hand. How did anyone know the cards of mucked unseen hand were wrong in the middle of the hand?

e) The ability to shove when the opponent was weak, fold when strong time after time after time never getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

f) Almost identical hands played completely differently when the opponent was strong versus when they were weak. Example after Example. Never wrong.

g) The strange staring at the crotch, phone off the table behaviors, never exhibited in previous losing sessions.

h) The booth interview where he seemingly knows when and where the live stream cut off and came back on.

Notice not one single bit of these pieces of evidence have the slightest thing to do with exactly how much he won, how often he reloaded, did he rebuy, how much he added on, how much is exact win rate was, or if he tipped the waitress or not.

Doing all of the above, it doesn't even matter if he lost money overall, it doesn't matter what his exact to 6 decimal places win rate was, these all indicate that he was aware of the live stream in real time. He cheated.

QFT b/c thread moved so fast others may not have seen this very good and correct post

Okay, I'm trying to see how this:

makes this statement possible:

So you could explain where your deep knowledge of "how they are doing things at Stones" comes from and how you know Berkey's level of knowledge of the subject? Thanks.

It’s a really top tier post that I have thought very similarly too for days but haven’t found the time to compose it like he did and he nailed it perfectly. No need for a “yes, and” just slap a +1 on that baby and stick it to the OP
