Phil Ivey loses case


Recommended Posts

Stupid ruling. The casino practiced negligence in protecting their gaming and made available to any player the ability to take advantage then refused to pay on what could be considered reasonable effective play. At any time during play they could have halted play and inspected the decks for flaws. They didn't take that step and it is not the players responsibility to alert them of their own incompetence. Just as the casinos never refund money for a mistake a player makes at the table, the player shouldn't have to refund to the casino money made from their mistakes

Casino gets a freeroll........if they win they get to keep the money, if they lose they get to sue and not have to pay.

 

I didn't read the article, but don't think it's the British courts because the Aviation Club is in France.

 

Although, there is another case and ruling on deck. The same thing happened between Ivey and Borgata Casino, but Borgata paid out unlike Aviation Club and are suing to recoup their money while also suing the card manufacturer. Will be interesting to see if this ruling goes into play in the Borgata decision.

 

Edit: I forgot it was Crockfords, not Aviation Club.

My take on both the edge sorting cases is, basically, "possession is 9/10ths of the law". I expected Ivey to lose his case against Genting and I still expect Borgata will lose their case against Ivey (they are suing Ivey to get money back they already paid).
