|Did he sort those cards too?|
The Borgata is currently suing Ivey and Sun to recoup the $12 million they paid the pair.
I, for one, am pleased that the decision went against Ivey. I do not appreciate his claim that was he did was not only not cheating, it was not dishonest. He claimed that since he never touched the cards in play, he did not cheat. But what he never mentioned is how he manipulated the dealers to turn the cards for him so that Sun could read the deformed edges in order to identify their values.
He claimed he was superstitious and the cards had to be in a certain position to allay his fears of losing. And he used his celebrity to get the casino to comply
This is clearly a form of casino-cheating as the procedure of the game is changed to accommodate a player advantage. Had Ivey simply taken advantage of the defective cards and not influenced the dealers to help him gain the advantage, than I agree he would have had a case for not-cheating.
So to all you bleeding-heart advantage-play enthusiasts out there who bought Ivey´s bullshit, I say to you, "Take it down the road, jerkoffs!"
