Aria's ‘Ivey Room' renamed to ‘Table 1'

Tags: Aria, Joey Ingram, MGM, Phil Ivey, Table 1, The Ivey Room
Posted on 26 February 2019 by "T".
The Ivey Room, a private poker room that poker players have known for nine years where some of the biggest nosebleed cash games occur, is no more, at least in name. The Ivey Room, a high-stakes poker room in Aria named after legendary yet controversial Phil Ivey that opened in May 2010, has now been renamed to simply "Table 1". This comes amidst his recent legal battle after Atlantic City's Borg[...]   Read more » Aria's ‘Ivey Room' renamed to ‘Table 1'

An interesting case with a despicable decision. This casino was not supposed to do this, but he allied with Borgata and made that decision. That name written in that poker room it was not related with the millions of dollars which Phil Ivey owes to the Borgata casino.

I do not understand why they have done this but they must have valid reasons for doing so. I do not think that the name of the room will bother the players' playing in it and the mega gambling will still go on

I was pretty much expecting from the getgo in relation his ongoing legal battle with Borgata. I am not saying he will be shunned completely or blacklisted but there is a certain frozen air which surrounds him right now - even spectators like me could feel from all the articles written about the case, good or bad.

I understand those who renamed this table with his name ... Well, of course it is unfair ... It seems to me that Phil Ivey is right about this casino ... But if the court made such a decision that he is wrong .... you need follow the decision of the court and there is nothing to change ... very sorry

That is just a small impact when you do things like ivey did.
I believe it was the right decision to make, and his name must removed from
every establishment, that had him honored that way.
This of course wont change a thing, regarding the return of the money.
Lets see what will happen with this...

They just don't want be associated no more with his name. I can understand it, it just a bad outlook right now.

Regardless of the court rulings,you can make your own mind, by knowing the facts.
There are many people around the world, that didnt wait for the court, in order to
decide if he was right or wrong. Some things are as clear as it gets.

And of course, casino's didnt like this at all in the first place Smile

Casinos are united when players use certain tricks to earn money and this it's a way to help between them. In this way players which is cheating do not use the same methods in other casinos. In these cases, they forget about the competition and allies against the cheaters. Even so i think Phil Ivey must remain the name of that room but this can happen if he pay 10 millions of dollars.

The name should stay removed, either he gives the money back or not.
And i dont thing that this is something that matters for ivey himself.
Its all about money for him right now, and not about fame any more Smile

I had seen in a movie, but i dont know if this is true, that casino's share information
between them, about their player base.

Of course this is not important, but that does not mean it like that poker room, he can not come back with Phil Ivey's name on it. I do not know what to say about casinos change details about players base but i think this is not normal without the players' consent. I think it's illegal but casinos do not always follow the rules. Instead they claim to be the players to respect rules. This is ironic.
