Gold seems to have the right idea:

'

“I think no players should have cell phones or electronic devices when at the table (when playing in a live-streamed game),” he suggests. “And the players should be vetted so we can see what they’re bringing to the game.”

I asked Gold if he’d have a problem with security patting him down prior to playing in a live-stream game to ensure for precautionary reasons.

Instead of obsessing about one player we need to push for more proactive security techniques including vetting and pat downs. And, actually enforcing electronic bans.

This isn't some new great idea I'm sure most of us actually thought of disallowing cell phones and whatnot. However, disallow phones and start patting people down and watch how quickly the number of players playing poker plummet.

Of course they should focus on a solution and that should be the number one priority, however, they should also keep a significant amount of focus on "The God" as well. One good reason for that is to make sure people know if they get caught cheating at poker that they won't get away with it. He should be used as an example.

What's the latest on Postle? Has he been playing? Are they still running the stream? If he is still playing, I'm sure he's running like God, right? RIGHT??

Cell phones were already not allowed. The problem is it was never enforced.

This is sadly the case with many poker rooms.

Floor and security are afraid of aggressive enforcement because it may scare off players.... So instead they deal with scandals like this....

And that's why Stones is also liable IMO. Remember when it was no cell phones in the casino, then no cell phones in view of the sports book? Next thing you know, you could have a cell phone hooked up to a laptop inside the sports book.

Thanks. I was actually wondering whatever happened with all this a few days ago. I did a little half-hearted searching but didn't find anything other than the fact that he wasn't being criminally charged. I still don't understand why that is.

Is there any estimate of how much money he scammed during his cheating times?

I havent read this article, so maybe this is in it, but 49 or 50 people are claiming to have been scammed for approx. $250,000 overall. (From an article I saw a couple days ago, didn't mark it). So FWIW.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
