His cheating scandal trial continue its way - Phil Ivey
Since last year, US poker pro Phil Ivey has appeared for many times in courts for cheating freaks. While his lastest court appearance is dated last October as he lost his case before the High Court of Justice in London, once again, he is recently melted in another scandal. In charge of this Borgatas case is a federal judge who has just dismissed the appeal made by Iveys lawyer. Anyway, the prosecution against Phil Ivey and gaming card manufacturing company Gemaco remains valide though the lack of information from the New Jerseys Casino Control Commission, and the non-implementation of the New Jersey Casino Control Act_ are seemingly taken into consideration.
As a reminder, London-based Crockfords Casino charged this renowned poker player in 2013 for cheating in Punto Banco tables. Phil Ivey was said to make use of the controversial "edge sorting", a technique of card reading by identifying print imperfections on some cards. For his part, Ivey claimed that this technique is none about cheating. A large sum of $ 12.4 million is at stack in this dispute. Worse, this year is far from being a silver lining for Ivey with another US-based poker room (Borgata in Atlantic City) pursuing him for the same case. Thanks to the same technique and the complicity with Cheng Yin Sun, Phil Ivey reportedly cashed $ 9.6 million by playing a series of Baccarat games. The Borgata paid his gains at the time, but later asked for refunds by seizing judicial court.
