Mike Matusow Defends Mike Postle Against Cheating Allegations. “The Mouth” obviously, thinks it’s possible to practically never make an inaccurate decision at the online poker table. And also possibly he’s right. Or, perhaps, he’s being ignorant.
Matusow isn’t the only poker player who relies on Postle’s innocence. Numerous Sacramento-area pros have come forward in defense of the accused cheater. But a lot of players on Twitter, outside the Stones Gambling Hall community, aren’t purchasing the tale. And that consists of a popular poker number– Chris Moneymaker– who initially safeguarded Postle.
Points aren’t looking great for Postle from a track record viewpoint, innocent or otherwise. However Matusow still has his back.
Matusow ‘Feels’ Like Mike Postle is Innocent
Maybe it’s Postle’s first name that has Matusow protecting the charged cheater. Or, maybe the reality that both Mike’s appear to play a comparable style, which is to utilize online checks out, not video game concept ideal (GTO) approach, as their basis for making what they regard to be the proper choice.
Matusow had some option words on Twitter for those who have actually explored Postle. Namely, Doug Polk and Joey Ingram.
Matusow recognizes a point or 2 concerning making “online reads.” He openly refutes the requirement for making audio decisions based upon game concept. So, he may appreciate Postle’s obvious capacity to make right decisions without exploring an opponent’s hand variety. The only distinction is that Matusow is, sometimes, incorrect with his reviews. Let’s have a look at an instance of why online checks out can’t constantly be trusted.
In the above YouTube clip, Mikey’s online read versus Phil Hellmuth failed him miserably. That isn’t a knock on Matusow’s video game. It takes place to everybody sometimes (other than Mike Postle?). He was one of the very best no-limit hold ’em players throughout the “High Stakes Poker” show days. But, it mosts likely to show, you can’t always trust your live checks out because physical tells aren’t a precise scientific research.
On the other hand, those that have actually seen numerous hours of Postle’s play— shout out to Joey Ingram — have yet to locate any kind of examples of where the charged cheater made an incorrect decision on the river. Which’s why numerous poker players think he’s a cheater.
Moneymaker Changes Tone
When CardsChat at first talked with Chris Moneymaker on Tuesday, he relied on Postle’s innocence. The 2003 WSOP Main Event champ has an extensive history with Postle that dates back over a decade of betting the declared “Stones Live” cheater. Both fought many times on stream, and Moneymaker taken into consideration Postle a pal.
After viewing a lot more clips of hands that Postle played, nevertheless, Moneymaker has actually transformed his tune. Though he hasn’t outright called Postle a cheater, he admits he doesn’t such as the “appearance of things.”
With Moneymaker now stepping out of Postle’s corner, it appears there are no prominent players that count on his virtue. Or, at least none that are openly coming forward. Well, besides Mike Matusow.
