You are really trying to push out replies to get to that 100k mark buddy huh? Go ahead and learn morse code before you tell us all how easy it is. Stop talking out of your ass. You are speaking about something you have no idea about. 18 words per minute by a navy veteran after a year and a half in comms training.
Am I taking crazy pills here? Who's talking into the other end of the bone conducting headset? Walk me through how that works.

I've asked half a dozen times and gotten nothing but derision with no attempt at an answer.

Also why in the hell does he recheck his cards like 4 times but that 4th time he does it nice and slow so he can see something in his crotch. Again 38:45 ladies and gentlemen. 38:45

At 1:35:25 another bold river raise into multiple opponents.

While I couldn't do any meaningful morse code off the top of my head except SOS, I've learned the mechanics of it, but I'd need the cheat sheet to do anything. I could probably memorize it in 15-30 mins.

It's just a bunch of dots and dashes and pauses, like 1s and 0s. I'm also a programmer and I've done a couple coding challenges involving decoding morse code. Very elementary abc problem, nothing complex about it. One of those problems you do when you're just starting out programming. ANYONE can learn this ****. Its the earliest form of long distance communication. People were learning this a century ago, you don't think we can learn it today? I can't believe im having this ****ing conversation.
I totally agree that the part where he was looking at his phone could be a hijack of the live feed.

It's the bone conducting headphone part i don't understand - since the live feed has no sound.

Remmeber this from 2017? Found a bonomo tweet saying he waited until hand was over with then showed hole cards because he was worried about the integrity.
Wow, interesting. I do remember being annoyed because Bonomo wouldn't show his hole cards. This tournament started on May 28th 2017. In the early hours of May 27th 2017 was when Aussie Matt loaned Leon a few million dollars to play heads up with which resulted in the legal battle between the two.

Who or what is producing the sound that's coming in to the headphones? What exactly is he hearing?

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

It has NOTHING to do with Morse Code or Posbple having a RFID reading device...

HIS HAT has a BONE CONDUCTING SPEAKER in it and he is hearing someone tell him either what to do or telling what the hole cards are...

If we can find out if the commentators are seeing the hands in real time and commentating in real time it is very possible that he is hearing what is going on. Either way, his HAT is telling him what to do.

Stones could do whatever the hell they want. CGCB will be on this and will give two chits about any internal investigation.

Oh. Stones Owners got caught lying to Commission in 2016. Paid 500k+ fines and lost their licenses for two years.

Gaming Regulators just love it when you lie to them.

The live feed of the hole cards doesn't, but it is possible someone is reading to him over the phone into his hat speakers either telling him specifically what to do or just listening to the commentators in real time.

Justin isn't the commentator though. He's working production. Sure, sometimes he's in the booth but I assume most of the time he is in a closet where he can do whatever the hell he wants.

There is another Justin, Justin Kelley, that often commentates. Not the same person.

So basically they're just investigating themselves again. Of course it wouldn't make any sense that they earnestly investigate this, as it would potentially expose them to liability.

The commentators do not see the hands in real time. They comment 30 minutes later. That has been established.

So if Justin is telling him what to do - how is he sneaking off every time from the production booth w/o being detected? That seems tough to me.

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

The main theory is that he was watching the live stream on his phone.

Bret Harrington was a guest commentator there and shared that he witnessed the live feed being displayed in real time.

It was probably fairly labour light during that system.

When people became suspicious and the phone ban was implemented, they came up with the hat system.

It could be that they used a text to speech system OR they were relaying the feed to someone outside Stones who was then verbalising the cards.

Wouldn't have to be a person. Not hard to have a computer voice relay the info.

My guess - some sort of app on his phone where he could select the seat of his villain and it relays their hole cards via computer generated voice. Whether he gets that info from the computer at the table or via some software on the tech computer, I don't know - but makes sense to me. Also explains the tanking and looking at his phone, as if he's trying to hear the cards via the bone conduction or waiting for the app to talk with the computer.

Seems like a strange selection to lead an investigation into the truth. More like getting ahead of the truth with a proper defense. From his bio:

Representation of the owners of a California cardroom/casino in the defense of an Accusation filed by the Bureau of Gambling Control, arising out of a federal criminal investigation of another casino the group was attempting to purchase. The Accusation was settled with a fine of $500,000, but no negative impact on the gaming licenses. Assisted the clients to obtain approval from the Bureau of Gambling Control and the California Commission of Gambling Control for the purchase and license to operate an additional cardroom/casino.

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

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet , but link to Jamans vlog with Mike p at the table.

https://youtu.be/9L6DueV9aHc

Another hand to stick in the soul read file where he opens 72o utg , Cbets AAx , get floated, double barrels T, gets raised and then he just godmodes villian and 3bets.

Also has him in the commentary booth where he says something along lines of “ I either run way better than everyone else or way worse there’s no In between”
Yeah sure thing mike.

Commentators also putting on a pedestal when he makes a correct lay down but would have won the hand when he rivers a boat saying something along lines of “ postle is human guys , he can’t see the future “

Just lol.

Also a brief clip where his stack is been filmed and I’m pretty sure u can see he has his phone in his lap once again.

If that's the case and there's no monitoring of him then yeah - the bone conducting speaker is easier.

But my impression was there are multiple people in the booth and Justin is running around all over between the booth and floor during the game (maybe that's when he hides in a closet - but I still think it's risky and it only takes one time of someone getting suspicious).

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

I'd say there is a better chance he is innocent (0%) then he is using morse code (also 0%). The reason morse code has a lower 0% is it is just so incredibly ridiculous that you keep on bringing it up. Why? Why would he use morse code? That makes no sense. Why would he intentionally take a much more difficult route when a much easier one is in front of him?

Maybe Justin is just saying the cards out loud?? Why is that so hard to fathom. There are little to no security measures in place obviously. He could be reading them out loud in the production. Maybe he's the whole production team. Maybe he is reading the cards out loud to the graphics guy to display on screen. Or maybe he is using the deaf service for people who cant hear or speak to make phone calls (I abused that system as a student to make prank phone calls). It's not harder to do than learning morse code and it's obviously what they went with. Text to speech is not that hard to figure out.

Someone in this thread has said that sometimes he's just sitting 30 feet away by himself in front of his laptop.

Someone who is watching the live feed, tells him "Harlan has flush draw, Moneymaker has AK etc..

That someone could be anyone with Stone live that has access to live feed, or Mike could have the Stones twitch key and someone completely offsite is watching from home and calling his Bluetooth
