The legend of poker of Phyl Ivy can become the bankrupt


The court has rejected the appeal of the well-known American pokerist and has obliged him to pay more than $10,000,000 for a dishonest game in casino It seems that in the history of a lawsuit between a poker legend Phil Ivy and the casino Borgata has put the end. And this final has hardly pleased the American. The other day district court of the State of New Jersey has rejected the appeal of the party of Ivy and has obliged him to pay more than $10,100,000 in favor of casino in Atlantic City. History about which we already wrote has begun six years ago. Then Phil and his girlfriend Kelly Sang, using defects in a pack, have won about $10 million in a bakkara. The casino, naturally, with it didn't begin to be reconciled and has filed a lawsuit against Phil who in 2016 has made the decision in favor of the game house. "Though actions of Ivy and his girlfriend didn't violate the rule of a concrete game of a Baccara, they were inadmissible according to rules of casino" — it was said in the judgment. Then lawyers of the pokerist have submitted the appeal, having said that Ivy's actions can't be considered as fraud, and the similar large penalty will cause financial damage to their client. And there has come the outcome. By the way, the court has punished the producer of cards … for $27 too. Perhaps, the judgment was influenced by the fact that this year Phil has renewed active poker career and has won more than $2 million in tournaments. Anyway, you won't envy Ivy now. Even for so successful player as Phil (in his asset more than $26 million prize-winning in tournaments), payment of such huge sum can give up as a bad job his career. However, already next day after the judgment in New Jersey Ivy's team has submitted the appeal in Court of Appeal of the USA. And new process will begin already soon. Though, according to experts, chances of a victory at the pokerist in a present situation are extremely small. Read also: Ukrainians have powerfully acted in the Main event of a series in Barcelona
