The cheating accusations against Mike Postle were originally brought up by Veronica Brill aka “Angry Polak/Veronica 2.0“ on Twitter:

Veronica Brill is a regular at Stones Gambling Hall and on the Stones Live stream and has been playing a lot with Mike Postle as well as even commentating his plays, while being able to see his hole cards.
