This case seems like it has been going on forever and it doesnt look like ending anytime soon. I thought at the time that Phil Ivey had exposed a loophole and took advantage of that and had done nothing wrong

The casino is not giving up. And why they should in the first place.
He knew that something like that could happen, that is why according to the article
he had moved the money i a mexican bank.
The casino seems determined to get their money back, no matter the cost.
And they will probably make it after all.

Almost the same thing i said.
I think Phil Ivey did not cheat but i do not know what kind of rules are in casinos.
Obviously the rules are more on the casino side.
It's funny how Phil Ivey is trying to hide the money in another bank which is from outside of Usa.
One thing is certain: he has to pay that money, but it is possible like Ivey to refuse this payment even if he lost the process.

Yes you are right. He did not cheat. he just had it pre planned, conspired with at least
one more person, from what we know, in order for his plan to work, and they were
just messing with the dealer to drop his attention on the game.
Yep you are right, everything was done by the book...

Isnt that what they call a scam ??? Or at least one of its definitions if you like?

This case will NOT be resolved anytime soon. Ivey likely to declare bankruptcy to forestall any judgements.

Then Phil Ivey need to move in Asia, maybe there he will have the chance to play without being confiscated the money.
If he declares bankruptcy, here is a chance that he will never pay this money to Borgata.
Some firms that declare bankruptcy never pay their debts and patrons are allowed to open other firms without any problem.
Phil Ivey maybe he thinks he'll be forgiven and never pay his debt.

They never going to be able to get this. All of his moveable assets are either offshore or out of their jurisdiction right now. Ivey is not gonna be able to make business moves in the US ever again without the IRS breathing down his neck if he won't pay and declares bankruptcy.

With no doubt, he will have to watch every single move he is making from now on,
regarding his fortune in general.
No to mention that, he will probably getting blocked in some casinos.
Why he should be welcomed after all, after what he has done.

I am not sure why this PR nightmare was worth fighting through for him. Those millions he hides now will cost him much more down the line with a tarnished reputation.

This story continues for a long time but, well, the casinos should be aware of the cards, dice or any other thing used in their casinos to avoid these problems since it was not cheating they observed a flaw and took advantage

When you notice a defect in playing cards, you can not ask for a player's money, who won in several months. This casino could not know if Phil Ivey knows someone from the cards firm. They saw this defect and thought to ask for the player's money. This is not normal and if i was the judge of this case i declaring Phil Ivey winner of this process. Smile

They proved it during the trial that he had unfair advantage compared to the house/other players by using this technique so this case was not just about asking their money back and so on...

I am not worrying about him - he will be able to live off his name recognition and offshore opportunities for the rest of his life, but yeah - good luck finding a domestic casino with open arms towards him after this...

You realize with as much ambition these players are tracked by casinos when they win Smile
I think the casino manager jumps up with joy when he catches a cheater and he know that the player will have to return that money for the casino owner. Probably has a reward when he catches a cheater. Confused
