Phil Ivey Controversy Back – Borgata Suing Star

Nevertheless, Phil Ivey has put an end to that claim as the multi millionaire poker player has allegedly been getting around on the Punto Blanco tables with a trick up his sleeve.

Initial reports of Ivey and his apparent misdemeanours were through the British media when Crockfords Casino in Mayfair London reportedly would not pay Ivey back a considerable sum of cash won playing Punto Blanco in the Mayfair establishment. That case is still up in the air even now. So what has Phil been up to now?

It seems with the media attention on Phil Ivey everyone has been asking questions – mainly ‘How did he do it?’... Crockfords claimed Ivey used a trick that takes advantage of the imperfections of patterns printed on the cards used by the casino. This allowed him to better predict when a significant card was coming his way thus he would up the stakes he played.

Since Phil attracted so much media attention and the revelations of his alleged trickery have been publicised, some of the casinos that Phil has visited in the past have gone into rewind. Any casinos that know Ivey won playing Punto Blanco have taken note and decided to investigate. One such casino is the Atlantic City casino in New Jersey; The Borgata.

The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa may never have noticed or battered an eyelid before allegations of suspicious Punto Blanco wins by Phil Ivey at Crockfords Casino came into the media’s attention. Unfortunately for Phil Ivey, the British media attention spread to the US and has sparked an investigation that appears to have convinced The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa that Ivey has also pulled the wool over their eyes.

In it is the old old story that most gamblers and especially cheats never seem to take note of: “Quit while you are ahed” – apparently Ivey was $9.6 million ahead at The Borgata Casino before he ventured over to the UK, where he almost walked away with a similar figure ($12 million) had it not been for casino management intervening and refusing to pay Phil his profits and only returning his original investment pending further investigation.



Had Phil not gone to the UK to try his luck further, he may never have been in the situation he is now. The Borgata Casino has announced the organisation plan to sue Ivey for the amount he won from the casino.

An official federal law suit has been filed against Ivey, who is known as probably the best cash poker player in the history of the game. The technique he used was against casino rules. Ivey knowingly used flaws in the cards to give himself a casino bonus windfall of substantial sums by changing the odds of the game to swing in his favour.

Casino rules are such that the odds are set by casino and any changes in those odds used as a technique to win are illegal.

The case continues!
