Mike Postle, an accused poker cheater, was spotted on the final table of a $500,000 guaranteed poker tournament at Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi. He is reportedly playing with only his first and middle name Michael Lawrence at the tournament. His presence was noticed after pictures of him grinding at the final table surfaced on the internet.
Angela Jordison shared a post on Twitter that read, “Good Morning Twitter! Welcome to 2023! I woke up with a message from @Mawkswell “Unreal just played with Mike Postle he was using an alias floor, confirmed it was him” Postle is in Biloxi. Final table resumes today…he is playing for 200K! (sic). The post was accompanied by a photo of Postle, taken by Max Young. She also tagged Veronica Brill and Joey Ingram in the post.

It was in 2019 that Postle was accused of cheating in one of the Stones live streams. He was accused of having an electronic device that was connected to one of the members of the show’s production team. It was alleged that the device gave him access to the opponent’s hole cards. Postle allegedly used an electronic device, perhaps in conjunction with a member of the show’s production team, to gain access to his opponent’s hole cards.
After being accused, Postle immediately denied the allegations made by Stones’ commentator and player Veronica Brill. Interestingly, she was also a former friend of the accused cheater. Although he was never convicted or charged with any wrongdoings, he has taken a low profile since 2019. However, after his image surfaced it looks like he is back in the spotlight.
As soon as the word spread that Postle was playing the $1,200 buy-in tournament in Biloxi, several Twitter users expressed their displeasure.
If this is actually Mike Postle this is not right.

Postle was a former Stones regular who, in recent years, either played poker online or kept a low profile in live games. His last live tournament cash, according to Hendon Mob, was in August 2019, which was weeks before the accusations. He has over $500,000 live cashes, with his highest cash being $118,000.
He was subjected to the cheating allegations majorly because of his uncanny skill for making the right decisions in tough spots. He was regarded as one of the most competent and tough players in the Mississippi cash games during the poker boom.
