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

WHY DIDN'T THE PLAYERS AT POSTLE'S TABLE JUST LEAVE THE TABLE WHEN THEY SUSPECTED THAT HE WAS CHEATING????? THERE IS A PRINCIPLE OF LAW THAT STATES
"AN ALLEGED VICTIM MUST MITIGATE LEGAL DAMAGES". ONE MAY NOT CONTINUE PLAYING AT A CHEATER'S TABLE AND CONTINUE TO ACCUMULATE LEGAL DAMAGES ONCE THEY REALIZE THAT SUCH PERSON IS CHEATING.

Instead of typing in all caps how about you breathe and actually look at what happened.

Even ignoring the misstatement of facts,

Mitigate damages is for after the injury.

While they were at the table, the injury was ongoing. ..

Imagine coming to this thread to randomly blame the victims of cheating in all caps with random imagined legal precedents

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

I played in the first stream mike decided to cheat in (July 2018)

I never suspected any type of foul play (The hand where he called off a huge bluff in a bombpot with bottom pair was quite difficult to wrap my head around at the time, I'll admit!) because I just assumed with all the cameras everywhere, something would have been caught by security

Before the statistical analysis was done on his hand histories, that was my first inclination that he was not working alone.

Obviously this thread needs to stay open so we can see Postle getting wrecked in his stupid attempted lawsuits updates

Yea the defamation lawsuit was a nice touch by Postle.

Defendants can recover attorney fees on anti-slapps. I imagine Postle will owe Veronica and Wittles' attorney at least $10k-$15k after the hearing. Guess only way to recover will be a lien at the county registrars office.

I did, and stated it, mind made up. All the whining is not going to change anything. I recommend players involved either go all Washington, DC on Postle and lay siege, or accept the situation and move on...

At this point I hope they stay in on principle, for justice. Not for the money they lost but so the truth comes to light.

And I recommend that you should absolutely feel free to pick and choose the topics that you want to discuss on this board, and let those who wish to continue discussing the currently active and ongoing legal issues do as they please.

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

"I knew Postle was cheating from the beginning!!!!!" said several of the Plaintiffs.

But for the "Mitigation of Damages" Doctrine.
The use of reasonable care and diligence in an effort to minimize or avoid injury.

Under the mitigation of damages doctrine, a person who has suffered an injury or loss should take reasonable action, where possible, to avoid additional injury or loss. The failure of a plaintiff to take protective steps after suffering an injury or loss can reduce the amount of the plaintiff's recovery. The mitigation of damages doctrine is sometimes called minimization of damages or the doctrine of Avoidable Consequences.

In contract law the non-breaching party should mitigate damages or risk a reduction in recovery for the breach. For example, assume that a property owner and home builder contract for the construction of a home in exchange for payment of $50,000. Assume further that the builder begins constructing the home but that the owner wrongfully cancels the contract before the builder has finished construction. If the builder must sue the owner to recover the unpaid portion of the contract price, a court may reduce the amount of money that the builder recovers if the builder does not try to avoid additional loss. For example, the builder could sell the materials already purchased for the job or use the materials in another job. The savings that the builder realizes will be deducted from the loss incurred on the contract in computing the builder's net recovery in court.

In Tort Law mitigation of damages refers to conduct by the plaintiff that, although not constituting a civil wrong itself, may reduce the plaintiff's recovery. For example, if the victim of an assault used provocative words prior to the assault, the words may mitigate the plaintiff's damages. Most states limit mitigation of damages for provocative words to a possible reduction in Punitive Damages, as opposed to Compensatory Damages.

But they didn’t know. They suspected or had a feeling. “I knew” is a figure of speech

Hmmm, I didn't realize that by reading computer generated letters arranged into words did not let humans from doing anything. So strange...

What is this rambling text? They literally went to the Casino staff to investigate, who said they looked into it and found nothing, so they kept playing...

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

I wrote a longer rant, forum software swallowed it.

Speculation - the attack was not RFID reading (too hard to read cards at range), instead RFID eavesdropping (i.e. use Proxmark3 or similar device to sniff the card ids as they are read by the actual reader / antenna). This wouldn't require an accomplice / server access / wifi. My guess is that the cards are 125KHz, and the antenna to reader link on the tables is probably unshielded. Consider attempting to perform this attack on your own table for ~$300 (Berkey perhaps?)

Speculation - producers were looking for cheater, and changed the cards to specifically look for conclusive evidence (but failed?)

Speculation - other hardware attacks are possible (tempest or an SDR attack like: https://www.rtl-sdr.com/using-a-hack...btain-the-pin/)

11 years first post. Wild.

Isn't ideas like this a waste, though? All he needs is the live feed sent to his phone. Very simple, very easy. Occam's razor..
