"...he seems to have deliberately stolen a quarter of a million,.."


Yup, but folks steal huge sums of money all the time, be it bank robberies, insider trading, general scams, & they don't get subjected to this level of vitriol. It's too much, imo. 

The reason this gets more publicity on a poker forum is because we can all see it, it is intersting, and we are all a bit intrigued,  so all have a view.  Someone mentioned the similar Glasgow scam, but we haven't seen it, and it is all a bit heresay, so nobody has much to say.

On the others it really depends on the publicity. Somebody who has overcharged a pensioner a few thousand and has Dom pop by with BBC camera gets subject to more than his fair share of vitriol, your average insider trader probably not.   I don't think anyone has been round his house, and I assume that plod hasn't felt his collar yet.  I don't even think it has got a lot of mainstream publicity, so it doesn't feel excessive to me yet.

So what's everyone's thoughts on the outcome for Postle ?

Heard he has took a vacation abroad.

Think Stones are more in trouble , financially , by facilitating the whole thing.

Postle  , guess is he will declare himself bankrupt .

Be interesting if it gets to a criminal trial instead of a civil one and he does a plea
bargain and spills the beans on his accomplice.

It's going to be awful for Stones, for sure.

Postle? No idea. When he is being - rightly, it must be said - battered on all sides across social-media & even TV, I worry a little for him. It's bullying & it's not nice to observe, & it must be pretty terrible for him to endure. Does he deserve it? Of course he does. If he self-harmed in some way though, well, I hope nobody wants to see that.

If he cheated, he deserves to have the book thrown at him, but he must be going through hell right now, & it's not a pretty sight.

Send him to prison for a few years, I'm cool with that, make him bankrupt, yeah, that too. But what he is going through right now is a bit too much imo, even if he is a dirty rotten cheat.


Let’s not bully criminals
May upset them

Joey & Doug are milking it for subscribers rather than revealing new stuff.


this is a very valid point.

it's mainly a witch hunt. will be interesting to see how this affects the legal case that has been brought.
