I am sure that many of you are waiting for updates on the Phil Ivey standoff with London´s ritzy Crockfords Casino over the more than $10 million the American poker pro won during an amazing run of fantastic luck at the baccarat table. Crockfords, however, doesn´t seem to believe that luck had much to do with Ivey´s good fortune. Without outright saying they suspected him and his beautiful Asian female partner cheating, they still continue to withhold Ivey´s winnings, and now more than three months have passed and the impasse remains intact.
I have no further news on this and am as anxious as you are to see how this case is finally resolved. As soon as I hear, I will post any updates.
My book, AMERICAN ROULETTE (St. Martin's Press), tells the true story of my twenty-five years as a professional casino cheater. Upon arriving in Las Vegas, in my early twenties, I supported myself solely through legitimate gambling. However, I soon found myself broke and homeless, living under a highway overpass. I eventually sought gainful employment in the only industry I had knowledge of, becoming a Blackjack and Baccarat dealer. Armed with experience on both sides of the tables, my mentor to be, Joe Classon taught the ways of a professional casino cheater.
Although retired, I keep up on the various cons and scams that law enforcement is largely unable to adequately police.
