Phil Ivey may face Atlantic City pay claims

World Champion poker player Phil Ivey may face even stiffer payout claims from Atlantic City’s Borgata, reports poker site CardsChat.

Requested payments will amount to a total of approximately $ 15.5 million because the casino seeks “want” damage. Ivey and one friend conquered the casino from $ 9.8 million in 2012 using an “edge sorting” technique where they can use their power to find cards based on an irregular scheme on the back of the cards.

A New Jersey court a few weeks ago wanted to rule Ivey’s system against casino rules, but don’t be naughty. In the UK, a similar court judging another “sorting edge” issue explained Ivey was offensive but not naughty when he won nearly $ 10 million visiting poker88.

CardsChat listed court records showing the doubles played 8618 hands during four sessions in 2012 at an average stake of $ 62,500 per hand. $ 5.4 million represents the desired winnings for the casino if the common house advantage in Baccarat is applied.

Borgata is said to be seeking to return nearly $ 250,000 in compensation made to the double. Ivey’s attorney has 20 days to respond to a request for payment.
