I mean maybe, but he never makes a big mistake. River shoving with 6/7 off suit when you only have a 7 high? He had to know no one else had anything at all.I’ve always thought it’s theoretically plausible to get efficient tells from combination of pupils/pulse/breathing though
Any of his individual plays is plausible on its own... Each one could be attributed to either a really ballsy move or a terrible play which happened to work out.Wow there's definitely some suspect things here. They need some proof though before they start speculating. Most of the speculation revolves around him folding good hands when it's not obvious he's beat or sticking on under hands where he has an unknown advantage. Hell you could accuse about any amateur poker player of this. I do the same stuff depending on how the night is going.
My favorite quote about his live read ability was something like “how can he have amazing live reads when he’s always looking into his lap??”He’s winning at an absolutely insane rate. He is either cheating or has incredible live read ability on everyone which doesn’t seem possible.
There was some discussion about this, in that if RFID was messed up, that card should be messed up for the entire session for any player, and that didn’t seem to be true. I think the technology is such that it’s super unlikely that a card would get incorrectly scanned in a one-off situation. And given the prevalence of RFID tracked events, what are the chances a mis-read card hasn’t ever come up on a live steam of the WSOP and caused confusion? Or Live at the Bike?Any time he makes a really bizarre play, like the 88 vs. TT full house, he can just claim the RFID got his cards wrong. That is a thing that actually happens. Funny how it happens when he does something really weird though.
I read somewhere that moneymaker plays with him a lot in Tunica...do you not run into him there?I don't think there is any doubt he cheated given the evidence, but why anyone would cheat on a streamed broadcast is beyond me. The evidence here is damning and abundent. Also the fact that he doesn't play outside of these streams is also pretty telling. No one wins at this rate that doesn't play often and frequent.
I think he got some help from behind the scenes in some way. I just hope they get to the bottom of it and nail his ass to a wall.
My understanding is Postle played at Tunica from 2003-2008. My guess is that's when the two crossed paths frequently. I haven't seen him once there in the last several years.I read somewhere that moneymaker plays with him a lot in Tunica...do you not run into him there?
In a short sample size this might make sense, but it isn't. If you graphed his win rate next to everyone else his would be a massive outlier and he has only had like 2 losing sessions on stream ever. It just doesn't seem possible unless he has super human powers or is cheating.From what I've read so far about this, no one can find any hands where he pushes all in from behind or anything like that. He literally just makes perfect soul reads every time. I guess he plays with the same regs most of the time and could just have major tells on them, but it does seem highly suspect.
Garret loses sooooo much money sometimes hero calling or trying to bluff when people have strong holdings. That never happens with Mike. Never.The evidence against him is pretty alarming. What are your opinions of other players who always seem to be on the right side of coolers? I watch LATB and garret is a fan favorite and Im a fan also but is there any suspicions of him? I know two different scenarios but just asking for other perspective
He’s got his phone in his lap on every stream, not on the rail like 90% of players. Not sure what he’s so intently watching in the middle of $5k pots that he’s involved in, but it’s suspicious at bestWhy does he he have 1 hand in his lap at all times too? Everybody else has both hands above the rail while his stays in his lap the entire time.
My guess is that if he were cheating it would either be in the form of text messages or the stream in real time aka 30min ahead of everyone else. Neither of which would be particularly obvious to a casual observerIf he was using his phone to cheat everyone would see it I assume. Unless it's cryptic somehow
He's probably browsing a list of hookers, deciding which one he's going to see with everyone's moneyHe’s got his phone in his lap on every stream, not on the rail like 90% of players. Not sure what he’s so intently watching in the middle of $5k pots that he’s involved in, but it’s suspicious at best
