For starters, he'd probably lose money when he can no longer see the cards, considering he's clearly an idiot and not very good at poker. I could go through a hundred recorded Stones hands to show how dumb this guy actually was with God-vision. Not worth the time. But it's truly embarrassing when you break it down.

If you don't know how to sort of believably cheat under the actual best circumstances possible, you're probably not smart enough to beat 2-5+. Mike Postle? Guy has dirt for brains

Agreed. All the idiot had to do was lose a big pot once in a while and he could have kept his golden goose.

Right? It's insane. He just thought he could play 100 out of 100 of the largest pots he ever played on record perfectly without a single misstep, all available online to be viewed at anyone's leisure, and it wouldn't eventually arouse suspicion

It got so ridiculous that the commentators were memeing about it. Apostle, etc. And he thought nobody's ever gonna be like, uhh, where the fk did this guy come from, how could he be this good and perfectly reading his opponents 99% of the time but literally only on this show and not out there crushing other higher stakes formats??

Yet you still get people in this thread defending his possible innocence. Blows my mind. There's never been a more obvious cheater at anything

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

Cliffs on amount of judgement that he will owe?

And what are the laws in CA regarding obtaining funds due? Can they force payment from him in any way? Ie garnishment or are the chances of him actually paying anything nil?

That was always the weirdest part to me.

If Postle was working with someone, why didn't THAT person sit down with him and tell him "look, you are winning way too much, start giving a little of it back, you moron."

It was hilarious, the dude would be up like over $10K and wouldn't pay off a $500 river bet into a $4000 pot getting 8:1.

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

The time frame could have been short for a multitude of reasons. It's a crash grab and as such one would be wise to grab as much as possible before the gig is up.

It seems that people ITT want to make themselves feel better by portraying Postle as an idiot for not getting away with it longer. The fact is there are tons of cheaters in poker yet few have scored as big, and Postle did get away with it for a very long time on live stream with hundreds of people watching him every single week.

Of course the real kicker is that despite having hundreds of hours of him crushing this game for an astronomical amount not one person has been able to successfully prove that he cheated beyond a shadow of a doubt. Postle is the dummy in all this? That doesn't seem to be the case. Perhaps take a look in the mirror.

Why and how would people need to prove "beyond a shadow of a doubt" that Postle cheated?

Anyway, the Stones game is shut down... that speaks more volumes than your troll posts.

Also regarding Postle being a dummy, he just got hit with $50k+ in judgments over a defective lawsuit he filed and we got to hear him talk about his ongoing problems during his 30 minute oral argument in that case so.... Postle is the genius?

His tournament winnings can be got before they cash out to him, and you can pay someone to do a worldwide search for any accounts in postles name and then file some forms and try to get money from postles account

He ruined his life for not a lot of of $$$. A real job would've been more lucrative. He is an idiot, so are you if you can't see that.

I guess we're shifting goal posts now but that's kind of what dozens of people in this thread tried to do and Postle ended up getting off scot-free. Whether that was a result of these investigators' stupidity or laziness is hard to say but it appears to be a combination of the two.

I agree that it was stupid of him to sue. I'm not saying he is a great genius in all facets of life but he did pull off one of the greatest acts of cheating in poker history so it's pretty laughable to hear all the armchair quarterbacks talk about what he should or should not have done when they really don't have a ****ing clue.

According to Postle, he cannot play poker anywhere, get a job, and the Stones game he made big money in no longer runs. How is that "scot-free." ?

If he didn't stupidly sue people, then get 2 Anti-SLAPP judgements against him, I would say he beat the wrap. Postle can get a job, maybe not a good job, but a job of some kind. I'm gonna guess Postle is lazy, like most poker players?

Question: Is Postle legally precluded from playing poker in any state? If not, I would think a crusher like him could find a game?

If we go under the assumption he cheated and had access to everyone cards then the way he went about this was incredibly dumb, he shouldn’t have been playing awful hands because eventually that was what gave away his cheating, he just could of properly played made hands and got max value and occasionally lose pots to not raise any suspicions.

Truly amazing that DC says he "pulled it off perfectly without getting caught" when Mike Postle's own actions in the way he played his the hands led to him being sued, the game and show itself ending, this thread, disgrace in poker community, his own defamation lawsuit...

That's being very results oriented. Did it never occur to you that Mike Postle may have always expected to get caught given that he was cheating right in front of hundreds of viewers? If that's the case then he should hit the game for as much as possible as fast as possible because he knew it wasn't going to last for ever.

He pretty much took a page out of his buddy Russ Hamilton's playbook. Russ was busted for cheating but has been able to live the good life ever since.

What's truly amazing is that you are able to produce made up quotes like this and attribute them to me when I said no such thing.

Playing garbage hands for a lot of money is why he got caught, if he looked like he was just playing great it wouldn’t have caught anyone else because the players at game obviously weren’t very good, he made so many reckless decisions, any good player with same cheating opportunity as him would have never got caught the way He did, he was so greedy.

Again, you continue to be results oriented. It's highly unlikely that Mike Postle expected not to get caught.
