|Mike Postle...the new Russ Hamilton?|
A huge class-action type lawsuit, that goes as far as to claim violations of the US RICO statutes, accuses poker player Mike Postle of using his cell phone to receive information identifying his opponents' hole cards via the live streaming of those cards given to viewers through RFID implants in them. In short:
Postle’s phone, according to consensus, was used to receive either the RFID (card-identifying) data itself, a hijacked live stream, or text messages from collaborator(s) inside the Stones Live production team. Likewise, the alleged concealed listening device, possibly a bone-conducting headset, could have received direct voice communications from a collaborator monitoring each player’s hole cards in real time. A less likely scenario involves a text-to-voice conversion app running through Postle’s phone.
This case is so intricate and multi-woven (if such a word exists) that the most efficient way to report on it is to link you to the two central articles about it. Then when you're done reading them, perhaps you will have the same reaction I had...mainly THIS STUFF IS SCARY!
