Sounds like a gambling addict and that's what made him lose his soul and cheat his comrades.

Damn, watched the first stream with Moneymaker (May 4th) last night, not all the way. Postle just loves to stare at crotch. When did the allegations start?

Less poker players would go broke from poker if they learned to take advantage of promos or multiple other gambling spots like advantage sportsbetting or other +ev casino promos. Guy in the video was clearly clueless that things like this exist.

My sources tell me Postle is a crafty hustler in the casino promo market and is one of the best at that type of stuff on the west coast. Thats how he built his bankroll to play and crush the games on the west coast

Dude he 3-bet AK and didn't get called. Then he racked a $208 win and got out of there. How much more action do you want?

Unless you have the thought planted that someone could be cheating, people would just view it as incredibly good play, much like people viewed it

At least dozens of people had viewed a very good amount of all the sessions and it took two years of it before one of them was sure enough something wasn't right to point it out to others

The fact is that people see what they are looking for, from people commenting here that the show was made up, comments that the commentators are sending secret messages, that they are openly engaging in human trafficking...

If you're looking for something, you'll find it whether it not it's there. That's basic human nature. 100% Postle was cheating, but it's not weird at all that it took so long for they're to be enough random observations to plant the thought he could have hole card data.

RE: TT vs (JJ)4 hand - I've been thinking about this a lot. It definitely is problematic. If there was a card reading error, how would Mike know he was beat? Also, did he later show jacks? I could have sworn he mucked and at the time of the broadcast he couldn't have known they had his hole card data wrong
What's that avatar from? It's driving me crazy in a good way. I've seen it elsewhere but reverse search isn't helping

At stones??
Every dealer I've talked to about it there has basically asked me not to talk about it and passively acknowledged that he was cheating.

Joey Ingram did some good streams on Postle. He talked about the first time Postle went into "crotch theory optimal" mode. It is pretty funny and well CTO is better than GTO for sure.

Cliffs since this thread got locked a while back? Any updates on the results of Stones' internal investigation or the lawsuit, or criminal charges? Thanks.

Lol. nothing's happened. Criminal charges are unlikely. We probably won't find out much about Stone's or the plaintiffs' investigation until discovery before a possible trial. It will probably be settled with a confidentiality agreement, so anything either side finds out will probably not be publicly released.

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

I really don't feel like grinding 10hrs of Joey Ingram videos. What's the consensus on this? Is everybody calling shenanigans? Or do some people think it's just a really strange and unlikely run of good hand reading?

Edit: I just read the FAQ in OP nevermind.
