Casino Lawsuits Involving Phil Ivey

The poker legend Phil Ivy has come under scrutiny in two law suites involving allegations of cheating. Both the Borgata and Crockfords casinos have filed lawsuits claiming that Ivy took advantage of design flaws in playing cards and cheated the casinos out of millions of Dollars.

“Ivey admitted to being able to exploit flaws in the cards that allowed him to detect the value of certain cards, but claims he did nothing wrong and the casino should pay him his winnings. The casino disagrees and contends that Ivey “operated a scam”.Pokerfuse

The cards delivered by the manufacturer Gemaco Inc., were defective and that the pattern on the back of the cards was not uniform. Allegedly Phil Ivy used this to his advantage by edge-sorting thereby defrauding London’s Crockfords Casino out of £7.8m and the Borgata Casino $9.6 million.

“The key cards he was looking out for were nines and eights, and possibly sevens and sixes. When these cards appeared, his companion asked for them to be rotated 180 degrees, pretending that Mr. Ivey was superstitious.” Daily Mail

We shall see how this case evolves over the next couple of months.
