As if the Hustler Casino Live cheating debate couldn’t get any weirder, the weekend saw perhaps the most famous cheat in the history of poker, Mike Postle, go on a bit of a rant connected to Robbie Jade Lew’s alleged cheating…

Mike Postle has been in hiding ever since his cheating on the Stones Live livestreamed cash game was exposed by Veronica “Angry Polak” Brill in 2019.
Postle is believed to have used some means of electronic cheating and /or an accomplice to fleece his opponents. Although a smoking gun was never found, the poker community’s investigations showed more than enough evidence for most people to surmise that he had cheated.
Garrett Adelstein’s accusations that Robbie Jade Lew did something similar during a recent Hustler Casino Live show have shaken Postle from his hibernation.
Todd Witteles, aka PokerFraudAlert’s Dan Druff, shared what appeared to be a very cryptic and rather random Postle post related to the recent incident…
Quite what the 2013 connection is, is unclear, but Postle writes: “Shouldn’t be much longer before a small part of the most out-of-line story in recent gambling history is told.”
That will include, according to Postle, “THE PROOF”, in conjunction with RounderLife magazine, pretty much the only supporter of Postle of any note during the whole incredible story.
Postle says we’ll have to wait a little while longer, explaining: “..for now, we’ll let this most recent event play out first, like when one side ends up hanging themselves because they simply like the attention too much.”
For most poker fans, that would seem to be directed at Robbie Jade Lew, who appears to be reveling in the attention, although admittedly looking less guilty by the day.
While Postle was raving on about revelations yet to come, magical mysteries, Morgan Freeman and the value of true friends, his alleged sidekick at Stones during the cheating, Justin Kuraitis, was also on the comeback trail…
Hi @RobbiJadeLew I am sorry to see you go through the same thing/actors/playbook as I did two years ago @StonesLivePoker @StonesGambling I think you are doing great handling these influencer/morons. If you decide to hold them accountable, I would love to help. I am in your DMs.

Many of the same ‘players’ involved in the ongoing Lew investigation were among the most active in the Postle investigation, Matt Berkey, Doug Polk, and Joe Ingram among them.
The biggest differences between the two cases are, of course, that Postle played hundreds of dubious hands, making him the extreme outlier of winning players since the Potripper scandal of the noughties. Lew, by contrast, was accused based on one hand.
Also, Postle spoke publicly to only Mike “The Mouth” Matusow in a train-wreck podcast, whereas Lew has been happy to talk to anybody and everybody, even when it seemed like a bad idea to share her ever-changing story.
What next? Watch this space for some incredible new Hustler Casino Live cheating story updates,, and of course if Postle provides anything approaching proof of anything, we’ll be right on the case.
