The Borgata casino in N.J. is suing Phil Ivey, 9x World Series Of Poker champion, for allegedly cheating at baccarat on several occasions during 2012 and made 9.6 mil off of them. I would love to see Mr. Ivey get off (no, not like that you sick pervs) and countersue the casino for defamation of character. That would really feel like sticking it to the casinos on behalf of all us low folk forking over our hard earned $$$ so they can exponentially fatten their coffers.

Phil Ivey is the man. Never shows any emotion or gives any tells. I hope he counter sues as well.

Ha. You know what, good for him.

Sounds like they have him nailed if they can prove their claims. Everything sounds good until it mentions him asking the dealer to arrange the cards a certain way. Even then, I think the dealer and card manufacturer deserve equal blame.

Imagine how many tricks and gambits the typical casino uses to lure people in and bleed them dry, yet when a patron uses something to his advantage, a card manufacturer error that the 'house' overlooked (dealers, cameras, bosses) they cry foul. Good luck trying to read Ivey's lips telling the dealer what to do. Probably can't pin him to it.

Gone ham, be back soon...

Sorry, but if you think you're supposed to win, you don't know what a Casino is.
