Great point, I definitely think this is possible. I'm not sure if that's how LATB does it or if its best practice, but on Joey Ingrams live podcast going on now, a guest commentator came forward in chat and said that one time at Stones, they were accidentally showing the live stream without delay on the several tv sets.

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

The stream that joey is doing now is a must watch.

Joey is going thru one of his only losing sessions, when Justin was working the WSOP. Postle is different in everyway. His body language, keeps standing up, hat back to front, left arm being above the table and what looks like a different phone. Plus of course he is actually losing hands

There are "Bone Conducting Speakers" that could be installed in his hat that someone could be communicating to him on. They aren't audible to others, just to whomever is wearing them... However, that doesn't explain looking down at his penis.

This Postle non-winning session is really damning. A completely different player.

The live streams keep freezing up for me, I'm still watching the stream from earlier #2. I'll watch #3 tomorrow when it isn't live anymore.

Guessing the key is about as likely as Postle being 100% legit. Not happening lol

Yeh it's a huge key. Justin could have simply given it to him or maybe through social engineering

He's clearly looking at his phone already, I don't see the motive to additionally have a mic.

So they do misread

Btw - I saw the posts about Postle usually sitting in Seats 1 and 2, and also this new Joey Ingram stream where Postle is losing/low energy.

It makes me think of the last time I was on the stream (6/17). Postle sat in seat 6? (one of the middle seats, directly to my L) and was super low-energy the whole stream. Wasn't the same guy I'd played with several times before.

I remember thinking, ****, Postle's on my left. But he was far from dangerous that night.

Here's the link if anyone wants to look closer at it; I would but I'm late-night smashing a work project tonight

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

RFID codes --> hand graphic: is this done by script or an actual person?

If it's done by script, then it would seem pretty hard for it to be wrong.

If it's done manually, then it is much more likely that someone just messed up on entering the hand.

Check that thread out. Not sure how to imbed on my phone. Justin and Postle can’t get their lies straight.

I was very curious when someone posted Mike's monthly results for 2019 and his only losing month was June. Another thing that peaked my interest was people noting that Stones TD Justin Kuraitis was in Vegas in June. So I decided to do some more research into this and see if there was correlation in the timeline of Mike's poor results in June and Justin being in Vegas in June.


Justin Kuraitis:
Scrolling through Justin's twitter timeline, it looks like he was in Vegas from approximately May 28 through July 12. I'm sure someone can verify the exact dates. I've posted the links to his first and last tweets from Vegas that are stamped "from Nevada".

Justin in Vegas May 28 - July 12

Mike Postle:
All of Mike's sessions from May 20 - July 20 are listed below. I have determined based on watching the hands which sessions he is cheating and which sessions he is not. I am an experienced player and consider myself qualified to make these determinations, but I have posted links to spots I believe indicate cheating or not cheating so you can take a look at them for yourself. A couple of things I noticed about Mike's appearance that differ when he is cheating vs when he is not cheating. When he is cheating, he is always wearing his hat forward and his phone is in his lap. However, when he is not cheating, he is either not wearing a hat or he is wearing his hat backward and his phone is not always in his lap.

Mike cheating May 20 (wearing hat forward):

-https://youtu.be/ZQuQPmjV8z8?t=13694 (This hand is amazing - RFID doesn't pick up opponent's cards until right after hand)

Mike not cheating June 1 (NO HAT):

Mike not cheating June 3 (wearing hat backward):

Mike not cheating July 8 (wearing hat backward):
-https://youtu.be/n2HMF2q6UXE?t=1924
-https://youtu.be/n2HMF2q6UXE?t=2635

Mike cheating July 20 (wearing hat forward):

-https://youtu.be/uQujzYc-lrk?t=11081
-https://youtu.be/uQujzYc-lrk?t=11521


Based on this timeline, I have come to the conclusion that Mike does not cheat when Justin is not around. Coincidence? Definitely possible. But this needs to be more thoroughly investigated.

Hopefully everyone involved in this scheme will be brought to justice and we can figure out exactly how this was done so we can prevent it from ever happening again.
This was all known already, you are too late

No it's not. The realtime feed would never be transmitted to Twitch. There's an internal feed that is shown to the commentators on a delay, that feed with the commentary added is then streamed.

Still funny @Mike_postle deleted his $10 offer tweet for people to find a hand where he put money in bad and basically no one found anything despite so many people going through these streams.

I don't agree that he's the mastermind, but this Justin guy is equally guilty here. I hope that he is punished to the fullest extent of the law and, for the sake of poker players everywhere, is never employed in a casino ever again.

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

I am a bit confused as to how the correction of cards worked.

Postle had no reason to think that his hole cards were shown incorrectly to inform anyone.

So how would the tech team or commentator know that his cards were shown incorrectly?

They would had to have first watched the "finished" video feed of that hand along with the "incorrect" hold cards, suspected that Postle could not have made that bluff, approached him to find out if perhaps the card reader was off, before Postle could realize that his hole cards were shown incorrectly.

Is it pretty standard for staff to confirm hole cards with players if they don't think action matches their hole cards?

Him citing this as an example is the biggest flag to his not being the mastermind imo. Can't be too smart if you think $40 out of the $2k+ you win during a session would exonerate you in the eyes of poker players.

He check-called a pretty big bet with a losing full house. Likely because playing it any other way would be too obvious or lose more money.
