Postle Gets Slow-Rolled by Opponent At “Million Dollar Heater” Final Table
- Postle was spotted playing at a tournament at Beau Rivage in Mississippi
- He was slow-rolled by an opponent and was called out for his alleged cheating
- Postle exited the tournament in seventh place for $32,703
More than three years after the massive Stones Gambling Hall cheating scandal broke out, it seems like Mike Postle is ready to move on and start over as he was recently spotted playing at a poker tournament in the US.
The alleged cheater made it to the final table of the “Million Dollar Heater”, a $1,200 buy-in event that took place at Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Alleged Cheat Postle Gets Slammed
Postle could now be trying to live normally and get back in the game following the infamous incident, but he was once again reminded of the scandal that changed his life when an opponent apparently slow-rolled him at the final table of the Million Dollar Heater. That resulted in Postle busting in seventh place.
Shortly after his elimination, the same guy who busted Postle told him the slow-roll was for all the cheating he has done.
A video shared by the Gulf Coast Poker.NET Facebook page shows Postle moving all in on a 6s4h5c flop. An opponent named Gary slow-rolled for about 30 seconds before making the call with 6c6h for top set. Postle meanwhile was holding 10c10h for an over pair. He didn’t get any help on the turn and river and eventually busted in seventh place for $32,703.
Following Postle’s exit, Gary’s friend took to Twitter to praise what he did, calling him an “appropriate avenger for the poker community”. But Veronica Brill, the whistleblower in the Postlegate scandal, was not impressed with Gary’s actions, as he was spotted shaking hands and laughing with Postle.
Why would I buy him a beer when he was shaking his hand and laughing with him?

Had Postle ended up winning the tournament, he would have walked away with a six-figure top prize, around the same amount he was accused to have illegally won on livestreamed cash games on Stones Live. Since then it has been reported that his winnings have been held.

Cheating Scandal Continues to Haunt Postle
Mike Postle made headlines in September 2019 when Brill accused him of cheating during livestreamed cash games on Stones Gambling Hall. The story immediately spread like wildfire, picked up by various news outlets, including those not related to poker.
The revelation was followed by legal actions including a $330 million defamation lawsuit initiated by Postle himself which he eventually dropped. Postle has kept a low profile since then.
