This is huge in the poker community and now involves a $10M lawsuit.  Mike Postle is guilty IMO, no way to win as he has done without cheating.  All of it in small-stakes poker too.

Got a TL;DR?

I'm curious to know what are the allegations, but not enough to watch a 30min video about it.

This scandal is new and on-going.  The first public revelation began late September at two plus two (pokers largest forum)  https://forumserver....t-post-1753388/

 

Net, Stones casino streamed poker on Twitch using playing cards embedded with RFID to enable viewers to know all hole-cards.  Allegation is the player Postle read the other's players cards in real-time via his phone. As a result there is a $10M lawsuit against him and some John and Jane Does.  Stayed tuned, this is huge in the poker world.

 

Good overview here.

its not on going news anymore..... its just a lawsuit now thats going to take months or even years to settle..... its very unlikely any criminal charges will be laid.... and its also unlikely that postle will be playing anymore poker games.........

all it is now is rehashing the news from 3 weeks ago.....

 

i was following this since it first broke 3 weeks ago..... think of it as 3 week old hurricane news.... the storm has happened... the aftermath is known.... the clean up is going on.....nothing new is happening....
