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.
