The cheating scandal involving Mike Postle and Stones Gambling Hall was brought to light after former Stones commentator Veronica Brill (pictured) posted a series of tweets, exposing Postle’s alleged misconduct during livestreamed games at the poker room in Northern California.

Allegedly, Postle’s incredibly good reads in this cash game livestream show on Stones Live that took place at Stones Gambling Hall in Northern California caused people from the poker world to believe that something suspicious was going on. If you have been following the world of poker over the last week, you know about the Mike Postle cheating scandal that has rocked live poker. Lower stakes poker pro Mike Postle has been called out by everyone from Joe Ingram to Doug Polk for what appears to be to some as clear instances of cheating. Postle, the suit claims, booked victories in more than 94 percent of his Stones sessions — a win percentage “representing a quality of play multiple degrees higher than that achieved by the best. The defendants in these were Postle, Kings Casino, and its poker room manager Justin Kuraitis. The first were filed in October 2019 and listed multiple causes of action. Plaintiffs alleged Postle had received information about opponents’ hole cards while playing on the “Stones Live Poker” live stream at the Stones Gambling Hall.

Brill claimed she had a firsthand experience of Postle’s unscrupulous act, which allowed him to amass massive sums of money, amounting to more than $300,000 in just one year. Postle played mostly $1-$3 games.

Brill’s accusations were initially brushed aside by management who previously said the claims had already been investigated and no evidence had been found. But as the poker community did their own investigation into the scandal by scouring game footages, the result of which appeared to favour Brill, Stones was forced to reopen their inquiry and hired a specialist team to dig deeper into the cheating allegations.

Weeks after the scandal broke out, Brill opened up about the accusations and what motivated her to expose what would become the biggest cheating scandal in the history of livestreamed poker.

Brill’s Working Relationship With Stones

Brill, who considers herself a recreational player who usually plays cash games and tournaments, was among the first players at Stones when the venue first opened its doors in Northern California and began livestreaming games. Roger Bailey, who pioneered the Stones Live show, was friends with Brill. Roger was the one who put Brill, alongside partner Jake Rosentiel in the commentary booth during the early days of Stones Live.

First Encounter with Postle

Brill said Postle was among the regulars at Stones and also frequently played in the Sacramento area. He took part in a lot of tournament and cash games, and many considered him just a regular cash game grinder, until his impressive winning streak during livestreamed games at Stones.

Brill revealed Postle was not that popular as a player among poker circles prior to 2018 when he started crushing every livestreamed game at the venue. Brill said she had some friends who had tried playing against Postle in $5-$10 and most of them would attest that he was a losing player.

Cheating suspicions then started to circulate about Postle only choosing to play livestreamed games and avoiding bigger ones. Brill said Postle, most of the time, walked away as the biggest winner in every cash game sessions he took part in.
