As the Postlegate scandal gets bogged down in the civil court system, one of the few defenders of the alleged cheat has been called out by Matt Berkey for trying to muddy the waters yet again…

With the exception of Mike ‘The Mouth’ Matusow, Rounder Life magazine – that Mike Postle has been linked to – has been consistently producing articles that aim to refute what many see as Postle’s clear guilt.

VIP Grinders has covered every development in the case since people accused Postle of cheating livestreamed cash games using hidden devices, perhaps with insider help.

Now the subject of a $30million civil lawsuit, along with Stones Gambling House and their poker manager Justin Kuraitis, Mike Postle has barely been heard of apart from a single interview with Mike Matusow.

Berkey refutes the RounderLife tech claims

Then it was time for Matt Berkey to take RounderLife to task after the ‘casino lifestyle magazine’. Postle did ‘unpaid promotional work’ for the magazine, claimed the tech aspect supports Postle’s defence.

Berkey discovered a mechanism in the RFID software that could be used to cheat.

He produced ‘a quick video demonstrating just how easy it would be to have perfect real ti
