Accused poker cheater Mike Postle had a memorable exit from the Beau Rivage Million Dollar Heater Main Event Monday when his opponent — Brock Gary — went into the tank with top set facing an all-in wager.
Following the slow-roll, Postle, who had just busted in seventh place for $32,703 in the $1,200 buy-in event, was needled by someone apparently off-camera.
“That’s for all the cheating that you do,” the off-camera individual said in the video posted by the Gulf Coast Poker.NET Facebook page.
Postle, who was accused by Veronica Brill in 2019 of cheating during Stones Live streams, reached the final table of 10 with a middling stack. With $208,400 to the winner, he was in line to earn his biggest score ever, which just so happens to be about the amount he was alleged to have won on Stones Live using what some refer to as “God mode.”

Brill also wasn’t too enthusiastic in how Gary handled himself despite the slow-roll.

Although Postle won a significant amount of money, his haters can take solace in the fact that he didn’t win the six-figure first-place prize. Max Young, who took the photo of Postle that had surfaced on social media, wrote on Twitter that Gary also told Postle on the way out, “that’s for the poker community you scum.”
Gary ended up part of a three-way chop in which he, Kooroush Gahedi, and Jeremy Eyer, the three top stacks to start the day, each received $144,380. Gahedi was considered the official winner, however.
