    Default Poker star Phil Ivey 'did not cheat' to win ?7m



    A star poker player has defended a practice he used to win millions of pounds from a London casino after it refused to pay out the money.

    Crockfords casino accuses Phil Ivey of cheating by using the "edge-sorting technique" in card game punto banco.

    Mr Ivey, considered one of the best poker players in the world, is suing the Mayfair casino for ?7.7m, saying the technique is lawful.

    He told the High Court in London: "I would never cheat in a casino."

    Edge-sorting involves studying cards for imperfections.

    The 38-year-old American played punto banco - a form of the card game baccarat - over two days in August 2012.

    He was told his winnings would be wired to him, but they never arrived. His stake of ?1m was returned.

    'Unjustly treated'
    "I consider all the strategies I use to be lawful and I would never cheat in a casino. It is not in my nature to cheat and nor would I risk my reputation by acting unlawfully in any manner."

    Mr Justice Mitting, who is hearing the case, has been told by Mr Ivey's counsel, Richard Spearman QC, that the casino's case was "plainly unsustainable".

    Yeah see on tv an emerican casino, where the guy cheated, within seconds Bubba and Bubba Jnr had hold of him.

    showed him clicking (iShit Failiure) flicking another card out his hand, but typical tv, showed the clip three times and slowed it down, you still had to be quick to see it.

    if he can afford the steak at ?1 million how much was the French fries

    Very few cheated I have read in the papers and most of them never played big money, and they went out broke (SKINNED) This one they could not find any clue and they lied that the cheque is in the post, the question was why the punter did not ask for the cheque there and there?

    Do you now? For cheating? This is an old story...he lost the case and also 7.7 million pounds.

    Last year, he also had to pay out an undisclosed, but reportedly huge, settlement with an Atlantic City casino in the U.S. after being accused of cheating there.

    Well, it is sad. I had to do smth like this in the past, I was in Vegas, and had 266k winnings, they asked me to stay and play one more game, I refused, so they tried to convince me to play more games in front of them. I left that casino with 300k$ in my pocket and 2 security guys with a poker face. After that incident, I started to play online games, till now https://www.sharpgambler.co.uk/ is nice and I don't lose money, my balance is always positive, with 40~50k$ per month. It is easy to make money, just don't be afraid to lose them. P.S. Now I am not allowed to play in 6 casinos from Las Vegas, because they think I am cheating.
