Hit and Run: Phil Ivey in UK Court; GPL Trash Talking Begins; PokerStars SCOOP Schedule

Steve Ruddock : April 13th, 2016


A look at the 2016 PokerStars SCOOP schedule. Phil Ivey in UK court to appeal edge-sorting decision. GPL superstars trash talk on Twitter. And more.

Phil Ivey in British Court today

Phil Ivey was back in a UK court today as his ongoing edge-sorting cases continue to play out.

After the casino denied him some $11 million in baccarat winnings back in 2012, accusing the poker legend of edge-sorting (something Ivey admits to doing but denies is cheating), Phil Ivey sued Genting Casinos/Crockfords Club. Ivey lost his case, but was granted an appeal in January, and his case was heard earlier today.

The Borgata’s lawsuit against Ivey, for a measly $9.6 million, where he also edge-sorted playing baccarat, is still ongoing.
