Posted on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 by "T".
It seems like the legal battle is never over for poker pro Phil Ivey.

This order was brought out regarding Ivey's edge sorting case as reported in late December 2016[...]   Read more » Phil Ivey shall try to appeal Borgata casino $10M lawsuit ruling

Seems to me that he already spent millions just to keep the retainer for his legal defense team, a long and troubled situation like this is a dream come true to every firm and their hourly rates could go skyrocketing if they win a couple cases like this...

This looks like a very complex situation, I do not really understand everything I read here, but one thing I can say that this americam law system looks really hard, and everything takes so much time, actually its similar in my country- we have many situations where case tkae years and years to be solved

and I think that he's a big lad !! went against the system, and it is of course very happy ... I always thought that his winnings should he stay ... the casino itself to blame for the error and is now trying to take away the money ... I'm on the side of the player

Is it the money he is after in the first place, or to some how clear his name from all this story.
Too many years now chasing something, that you have already lost and probably will lose
again.
And in the process of course he is losing money. Lawyers dont come cheap Smile

In my opinion, Phil Ivey should definitely be appealing this decision and i think that he has a very fair chance of it being overturned. I really hope that he wins his appeal and gets his money

this is crap. these are casinos that make billions or millions they cannot come up with a perfect deck? by not having a perfect deck, they are 1. giving players a chance to edge sort. and 2. using it against them if they happen to win. scam. It just shows just how much Casinos are greedy and sore losers,
instead of making this a marketing tool and improving their system,they cry like babies..

I dont think it is the casino that does the crying here.
Since they ordered ivey to give the money back, probably he is the one Smile
The rest of the casino world must have got a lesson out of it.
Doesnt cost for them changing a deck of cards every time and it can save them the trouble and
money.

They do not even need perfect decks they just need to change them more frequently...

I have seen a couple of times in casino's, baccarat, with some high bets there.
In every game, the players were folding the cards, and i mean literally folding the cards,
once or twice, or even tearing the cards apart.
So in every single game, they were using a brand new deck of cards Smile
Thats a way to do it Smile
