Mike Postle, a controversial name, has again come into the spotlight after he was recently spotted on the final table of a $500,000 guaranteed poker tournament at Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi. In 2019, he was accused of cheating at the Stones Gambling Hall in Mississippi. After the incident, Poster maintained a low-key profile by staying away from the limelight and the live poker felts. He was either seen playing online or was completely out of sight since the incident in 2019.
After images of Postle playing the recent live event in Biloxi were circulated on the internet, it appears like he may be in Mississippi now.
Prior to the cheating scandal, Postle was a regular grinder at the Stones Gambling Hall. Although there are not many records on where he was born and resided before the scandal, his frequent visits to the Stones and a few sources suggest he lived in Southaven, Mississippi, earlier too.
Mike Postle’s Hendon Mob profile suggests that the player has $571,215 in live tournament earnings, all earned before 2019. His career-best cash of $118,743 came from $ 1,500 No Limit Hold’em at the 2007 Gold Strike World Poker Open in Tunica, wherein he shipped the event. He ranks 4,518th in the All-Time Money List.
His last successful live cash was on 12th August 2019, when he finished fifth for at the $ 120 No Limit Hold’em Quantum $100k GTD event in Citrus Heights and pocketed $10,054.
Since Mike Postle has been low-key and has not appeared in many live events for over two years now, it is difficult to estimate his exact net worth. However, sources suggest Mike Postle’s net worth may be between $1 Million to $5 Million.
After images of Postle surfaced on the internet, #MikePostle has been trending on Twitter. Several poker pros and publications have been tweeting about Postle. Have a look:
