Borgata May Not Have a Case Against Phil Ivey

Borgata May Not Have a Case Against Phil Ivey The case against poker pro Phil Ivey filed by Borgata has been returned to the company by U.S. District Court Judge Noel Hillman due to the lack of the state domiciles of Ivey and his associate Cheng Yin Sun.

Online gambling legal expert, Professor I. Nelson Rose of Whittier Law School, doubts that Borgata has a valid claim against Ivey as sorting is nothing new and it’s the casino's responsibility make sure that the backs of cards don’t bear any identifiable marks.

"Ivey used information available to all players," Rose said. "By definition that was not cheating."
  • This type of thing has been going on forever. You would think that with all the money spent on security that they would spend a few bucks making sure that the backs of their cards weren't going to talk to the customers. I don't agree with cheating, but was he really cheating?
  • I love this man.. he is so smart and I hope that all will and well for him... And my opinion is that he is not guilty, he is just use their mistake
  • sorry I mean he shouldn't have done that. sorry for my mistake.
  • I knew Phil Ivey was smart enough but didnt know that he has willings to do such things, so after reading closely yesterday what was posted about this situation I think he should have done that ( despite that there were missings in this cards or whatever it was bad with them that allowed him to read it ), it was enough that he was a good poker player and he could earn money just on it, he didnt need to make such moves with casinos. I agree with you Paaske on that one , shame on him.
  • Of course they dont have a case. If they were marking the cards themselves then yes. But because there was error in pattern back of cards is somewhat the casinos responsibility. Yes one way cheating and if he was a honest player he would not had done it. So still SHAME ON YOU PHIL!
