So, yeah I watched a couple youtube videos about this case, there are dozens of hours worth of content out there with people 'investigating' this guy.
The main thing is - his headset/carkeys etc. is probably getting the RFID signal which helps identifying/displaying the cards onto the live video stream - which meanwhile is going on with a delay, so he is not watching the stream itself - within the broadcast software and in return the intercepted signal is displaying on his phone (hence he is trying to look at it whenever making decisions).
It's not rocket science per se, but he's obviously has an inside man within the casino because he could only cheat when he is on livestream. He is on livestream a lot. I mean a lot.
Very hard to prove it on courts though.

this case is something special and they will need bigger proof then this!for all of them is strange when he played great and he knewt when to fold of bad hands and when to bet even with low cards,but with good cards on table!if they think that he had another man behind this,then he need to find first him and that he tell everything!only with video they cant make much!

the truth would have to study this in more depth to know what is really happening ... because cheating or disgrace things is not fashionable or that but it happens a lot lately, so you should find out well what it is that step and if he screwed up Confused Confused Confused

Now i understand much better why this player wanted to cheat. The amounts of money are huge and everyone could try to commit scams and to earn a few millions of dollars. I don't know if these millions of dollars will be recovered but this player i guess, he will be confined in the penitentiary.

You could only find these things out because the casino's own stream provided the proof. But at the same time without the stream there would be no way to cheat the table as an outside player, so there's that...

Lol Mike and his accomplices were so greedy. Why didn't Mike intentionally lose some hands to make his plays more legit?

The poor persons will always be poor, if they do not do something good to succeed in life. Brave people choose different legal or illegal methods to get rich. This player tried through cheating and was filmed and found by the casino employees. This is very good.

NO WAY he played honest, from the 57 matched he played there he won over 50!! the reads that he did arent human, if you make one fishy decision it can be played off as 'gutfeeling', but this is far from that. when his 'friend' who works as an official employee for the stones live games, whas sick. he suddenly canceled a tourney he planned to attent. this whole case reads like a fishy bussines, i hope the other players who lost because of his cheating get rectification

I think the important question is why are they live streaming any poker tourney or cash game?

Live streams should have a minimum delay of however long the longest possible hand can take to complete in any format.

I also think curtailing the functionality of electronic devices at the tables should be considered, at the very least any device that is capable of receiving/transmitting data. Turn off the wifi at the location and you can only listen to tunes downloaded on your device.

i will be very interested when it finally gets to court. how are they going to prove cheating to a jury who may not be poker literate also the same goes for the judge.
i expect it will die a death till next year just before the court dates. rgs tom

He lost some hands, and sometimes he folded hands he could have win with but the patterns he displayed previously were noticeable even on cash sessions where wasn't all that much money involved.
If anything this media $hitstorm was not because he won a lot of money rather than how he played in those sessions, hence his nickname 'apostle'...
