Casino Sues Poker Star Phil Ivey for Card Cheating

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat.

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world.

The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards in baccarat. The technique gave him an unfair advantage on four occasions between April and October 2012, the casino asserted in its lawsuit.

The casino claims the technique, called edge sorting, violates New Jersey casino gambling regulations. Its senior vice president, Joe Lupo, declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Ivey's lawyer declined to comment on Friday.

The lawsuit claims the cards, manufactured by Gemaco Inc., were defective in that the pattern on the back of them was not uniform. The cards have rows of small white circles designed to look like the tops of cut diamonds, but the Borgata claims some of them were only a half diamond or a quarter of one.

The lawsuit claims that Ivey and his companion instructed a dealer to flip cards in particular ways, depending on whether it was a desirable card in baccarat. The numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 are considered good cards. Bad cards would be flipped in different directions, so that after several hands of cards, the good ones were arranged in a certain manner — with the irregular side of the card facing in a specific direction — that Ivey could spot when they came out of the dealer chute.

You don't consistently win large amounts of money unless you're cheating.

My own experience says otherwise, it's about people as much as cards.

That is 'usually' the case.

The casino doesn't mind fleecing people out of their money day in and day out.

Yet they howl like banshees when the tables are turned on them.

lol!

Casinos dont force people into their buildings. Same with food not forcing itself into some fat fucks mouth.

People do it and should STFU about the consequences.

Absolutely true but casinos do/will use certain things to their advantage and sometimes outright cheat.

If someone finds a way to beat the system they deserve the spoils. Well Done Phil Ivey!

It's not like he marked the cards himself or arranged for the casino to use a certain deck. He didn't cheat imo

Re: Casino Sues Poker Star Phil Ivey for Card Cheating

Even if a player uses a strategy such as card counting, the casino considers it cheating and bans them..... It fucking bullshit, basically the casino can take people's money strategically but when someone turns the tables on them it's a different story.
