Every now and then, we are treated to high profile scandals that keep us on the very edge.

Well, there may be a new controversy brewing, courtesy of insane winning runs by Mike Postle from horrendous plays.

Mike Postle is a poker pro with $536,542 live earnings according to Hendon Mob. His best live cash is $118,743 which he won in 2007 at Gold Strike World Poker Open, Tunica. Currently, Postle ranks 4,041st on the All-Time Money list, 13th on the Mississippi, USA All-Time Money List, and 3,444th on popularity ranking. Apart from participating in various tournaments across the United States, he is also a regular at Stones Poker Room live streams. It is at the casino that he has won a staggering amount of money.


Mike Postle scandal

The controversy surrounding Mike Postle’s almost perfect run of results at Stones Gambling Hall was triggered by a series of tweets from Veronica Brill. Brill accuses Postle of cheating during live-streamed cash games at the casino.

In a surprise twist of events, she also tweeted that she is not 100% sure that Postle cheated, but she still stands by her initial allegations.


Poker pros weigh in

The allegations have split the poker community right down the middle. A relatively large number of players side with her while some players allude her allegations to a witch hunt.

The first poker pro to come to Postle’s defense was Chris Moneymaker. According to Moneymaker, Postle is an exceptional player and that Brill’s allegations were in bad faith.

Doug Polk, however, disagreed with him and even made a video reviewing some of Postle’s God-like decisions.

Is there more to the story? Is Mike Postle a poker cheat?

Well, it is not my place to answer these two questions. However, one thing is certain; there is more than meets the eye here. Even with top pros, downswings are a common occurrence, but it seems Postle is somehow immune to variance, which should be next to impossible.
