It seems like the legal battle is never over for poker pro Phil Ivey. The most recent news about Phil Ivey and his case against the Borgata casino is that Ivey was ordered to give back to the casino what he and his companion had won worth $10.1 million, as compensation for breaching the casino contract. This order was brought out regarding Ivey's edge sorting case as reported in late December 2016.

WPT Borgata - Final table: Greatest comeback ever?

Tags: 2009, borgata, final table, Jeremy Brown, Olivier Busquet, wpt
Posted on Friday, September 25, 2009 by "T".

WPT Borgata attracted a huge starting field this year. Not so many notable poker players, but the tournament turned out great even though the most stars decided to play WSOPE in London instead. Of the huge starting field it came to be the 6 players below who made it to the final table.

Olivier Busquet - 10,350,000
Yanick Brodeur - 5,780,000
Ivan Mamuzic - 5,655,000
Jeremy Brown - 5,480,000
Keith Crowder - 2,750,000
Kenny Nguyen - 600,000


Olivier Busquet, from New York, had a big chip lead as the final table started. It was a very well deserved chip lead, and to be honest it seemed like nothing could stop him from grabbing the first prize of $925,514. But the way to the win of WPT Borgata wasn't all that easy for the American.

WPT Borgata: Only 6 players left

Tags: borgata, Olivier Busquet, wpt, wsope, Yanick Brodeur
Posted on Thursday, September 24, 2009 by "T".

World Poker Tour Borgata attracted a huge starting field this year. Maybe because of the low buy-in, or maybe because not so many stars decided to play this time. Many of the bigger names are instead playing World Series of Poker Europe in London at the moment.


Whatever the reason might be for so many participants this time, the tournament is now down to the 6 players below who are going to play the final table. No notable names as you can see, but it will be a very entersting to see whether the big chip leader, Olivier Bisquet, from New York, can manage to keep the big lead and get another great result this year (311th place in 2009 WSOP Main Event).

Olivier Busquet - 10,350,000
Yanick Brodeur - 5,780,000
Ivan Mamuzic - 5,655,000
Jeremy Brown - 5,480,000
Keith Crowder - 2,750,000
Kenny Nguyen - 600,000

Ladies poker event won by a man

Tags: Abraham Kortotki, Borgata, ladies event, ladies poker tournament
Posted on Tuesday, September 22, 2009 by "T".

Two weekends ago a 65-year old man named Abraham Kortotki won a No Limit Texas Hold'em event for women at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ. Kortotki and several other men were able to enter the tournament for women thanks to a legal loophole involving discrimination laws. Of course this made many of the female participants very upset as they thought a "ladies no limit event" only should be for females. Probably the most upset of all the women that took part in the tournament was the second place finisher, Nicole Rowe.


Nicole Rowe thought that the tournament organizers openly dismayed by the outcome as they confirmed that Kortotki's win is legitimate. And when she asked Kortotki to split the first prize, she got her request rejected by Kortotki as he claimed to have entered the tournament with the law on his side just like the other male participants had. However, he promised to donate some of the $20,982 cash prize he won to a breast cancer charity - a condition that Rowe has been diagnosed with. Kortotki, probably made this good will gesture just to cool down the feminist flames a bit? Who knows? However, one thing is for sure, and that is that Kortotki's win of a poker tournament for women has brought many questions to life. For example: What exactly is the purpose with a "ladies tournament"?

Do you think its discriminating to organize poker tournaments only for women?
