A casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States (US), recently filed a lawsuit against one of the world’s popular poker players. Borgata Casino, the name of the gambling place, charged the gamblers with manipulation, until they lost and lost nearly 10 million US dollars or around Rp114 billion.
In the lawsuit filed in federal court last week, the casino faction charged Phillip Ivey Jr., the gambler who was the 9x World Championship Poker champion, of basically committing mischief by engaging in an “edge sorting” technique. The Borgata Casino faction accused Ivey of taking advantage of the card maker ‘s mistake, which he thought he knew when he noticed that there were discrepancies in the design motives on the back of the LagaPoker visit card.
As taken by Gawker from the Associated Press (AP), the suit states that Ivey and a partner in the game of Baccarat ask the dealer to change cards specifically, depending on if there is a card that is expected. In this case, the numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 are seen as good cards.
In the meantime, still based on the explanation in the claim file, the “bad” cards will be flipped in different directions, until after a few cards the good cards will be arranged in a specific scheme where the “unusual” side faces a specific direction. That’s where Ivey mentioned can confirm when the cards were issued by the dealer.
It was also explained, if the cards made by Gemaco Inc should display a circle design that looks like the shoots of the diamond cut (half) scheme. But the diamonds in the scheme seem a little different in shape.
According to AP’s records, another casino, Golden Nugget Casino, initially filed a lawsuit against Gemaco, because their cards had made some gamblers easily win up to US $ 1.5 million (Rp.17 billion). On the contrary, it became known that Ivey was probably not a “clean” person, because initially a casino in London had sued him for the same facts, and they won. (Gawker)
