There is no such statistical analysis. There have been some who have said they will do it, but not have followed it through.

One of them is Galfond. I am pretty suprised, that all of the poker players he is one who does these kind of things as well. I have been thinking that he is and want to represent himself as truthful guy there is. It's way to kill your good reputation first promise to deliver, and then you just don't do it. Understandable that guy is busy, but then there is no need to make public promises.

Would be good for all, if well done statistical analysis exists.

I'm sure some have done it. They just didn't like the results. Probably not as damning as they thought it would be, or at all.

If you still think the exact stats matter in determining postles guilt... you might be a Postleneck.

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

Postle filed a questionable defamation suit against a lot of people.


Apparently none of the defendants were served.


At least one defendant filed an anti-SLAPP motion.


anti-SLAPP motion is to prevent someone from filing frivolous lawsuits trying to get you to shut up. Tie you up in court, cost you legal fees.

If the motion succeeds, you are dismissed from the suit and he can be on the hook your lawyer fees for filing the motion.



Postle's lawyers have removed themselves from the case, saying they can't contact him and that he failed to fulfill some obligation(s) to them.

Or maybe people are being quiet for other reasons, like if there were an active lawsuit going on.

Why would anyone publish such findings a month before a sue-happy scumbag gets his defamation case dismissed?

Sue happy? Man is defending himself from a group of "sue happy" loser poker players. I think the stats will show he didn't run as good as people think. If anyone releases their findings. The fact it's been this long and we haven't seen them tells me they aren't good. polk,ingram,galfond, where are they? They ran their mouths, made some youtube vids for profit, but the data? Year later, where is it?

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

People's belief that he cheated is based on more than just statistical evidence, it's based on him making insanely bad plays that happened to be good plays only if you can see the cards. You're just a troll, someone who either knows Postle or is a pure contrarian.

The man called off 54o when the action was raise, 3b!, he called, 4b! all in, call, then he called. He was up against ak.

He 4bet bluff the turn against a-high when he had 97s on a paired board when the player bluffed into 4 players, postle raised, the guy 3b!, and postle 4b! shoved with like a 1/6 pot sized bet left. The guy had to fold.

That's just the tip of the iceberg. Only someone who has no idea how poker works would think he wasn't cheating. Those plays are impossible unless you know the cards.

Never said there wasn't more to be suspicious about.

54 is his favorite hand supposedly. People bringing uo that play to show cheating make me laugh.

QQ and AKs are my fav hands, but if the action goes like that I’m prob folding bud (nm 45o you genius).

so there should be many instances of him getting it all in preflop with 54o right

Prove there isn't.

Also with 54 against ak ak, you only win 40% of the time.

If I have access to live feed I'm not risking all my chips in that situation.

People play their fav hand all the time for horrible odds. I know a guy who never folds j2.

Again, you guys make no sense. You want him guilty so you'll look at everything in that light.

That's you, but I've seen more people call off than not. And I'm sure you have as well. People have called off worse. Sometimes you feel like gambling. At 40% 54 is not some great play to make money with.

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

It was 40% against two players. That is a very big EV+ spot for someone's favorite hand. Something being your favorite hand is not a reason to put tons of money in preflop for a professional player.

Also notice how you didn't want to address this hand:

Congrats, you named 1 hand. I said it is my belief all the people who said they would do a statistical analyst of his hands never posted bc it didn't show what they wanted.

That is all I'm am saying or going to. Have a nice day.

I’ll happily prove there isn’t a statically significant amount of times poster gets it all in preflop with 54o

We can bet on it. Please pick a reputable escrow and let me know the odds you want.

If you don’t take the bet I Will assume you don’t believe in your side and therefore concede that postle cheated

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

Risking 3k to win a 9k pot and 40% of 9k is $3600. That's +$600 in EV right there. And it pays off dividends in the future when the table thinks your a fish who calls off with 54os.

sometimes you call all in with aces sometimes you call all in with 45off you gotta balance them out so you don't get predictable
