It's more likely that everyone appearing on stream are actors and this is the most elaborate prank ever than it is that he is not a cheater.

But if you watch any of his session and assume from the beggining that he knows the cards of his opponents, then all his moves on every street start to make an absolute sense. Every hand.

Crazy thing is: If you try to emulate his preflop game online you won't even beat NL5 (all due respect to microstakes grinders btw).

Watch the first two of Joe Ingram's live streams of Postle's hands. He plays as if he is omniscient.

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

has anyone considered mike didnt have 98s on the graphics error hand v 96 on the Tx75Jssxxx and he had to shove the river over 96's raise in order to win the pot? so the td went up to the booth while mike was tanking to tell them he has the nuts so it wouldnt look suspicious? also, is there any other reason for him to tank for so long with the nut straight when his opponent only had ~$900 back? dont people just shove somewhat quickly assumming youre always getting called? did he tank so the td would have time to tell the booth he has 98?

Does any1 have an idea how long this has been going on? Is it really worth it, bc it seems like its a multi person operation. Obv slimeballs will do anything for a scam.

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

thinking further, if the theory is that the hat set up is in response to Phones being banned, what are the chances he was ready to immediately switch to that method? He just had it ready to go and hadn't used it before? There doesn't seem to be a dip in his results whilst he/they figure out a new method.

His hat might also be stuffed with this kind of speaker beanie. Just cut off some unnecessary parts.

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

Couldn't you just do some kind of foot vibration thing inside your shoe and not have the risk of it being seen or falling out of a hat?

Btw the perfect crime would be to have the receiver and transmitter up their butts. One transmits by clenching his sphincter, the other feels it.

You can see him lifting his hat off entirely in one of the craziest hands in one of Doug's videos ...
There's nothing there ...

I'd say watch the first two videos and then watch Dougs video and then watch the third Joe Ingram video where we see Mike acts completely different in alleged non super using sessions. He acts so different, has completely different table demeanor and wears his hat differently in the alleged non cheater streams and doesn't make heroic plays every hand.

It's virtually impossible that he is not cheating when he is wearing his stuffed hat frontwards pulled way down, and goes through the entire hat touching, fake look at the cards to look at his crotch routine.

Tough to communicate that much info that way. If you just want to indicate "call" or "fold", sure, but there were a couple hands where Postle almost certainly had more detailed info than that.

Of course they got incentive to investigate. Whether they "still got their rake" is irrelevant. Their livelihood is on the line. All a casino has is their reputation. If they are knows as cheaters, not only will they lose business, but big old California is going to shut their a@# down.

I expect some "examples" are going to made here and it will be out of the hands of the incompetent poker management. It will be higher level corporate intervention.

It's going to get real pretty quick here. I suggest if Mike and Keven haven't got good lawyers, they do so quickly. Also, they should not talk to any investigates from the casino. As much as they are dirtbags and deserve to spend some time in jail, that is the best advice anybody can give them right now
