HNR 4/11: Phil Ivey Being Sued; Bikini Poker Prop Bet for Norwegian Hottie

Dustin Gouker : April 11th, 2014


Phil Ivey and a casino are at odds, and a hot poker player strips down at a poker tournament. Check out a wrap-up of the happenings in poker in our daily “Hit and Run.”

Ivey being sued: Phil Ivey and the Borgata aren’t BFFs. The casino is suing Ivey for allegedly cheating at baccarat, using a technique called “edge sorting.” Ivey also had a similar episode with Crockfords in London, as he sued that casino last year to release his winnings. Get the lowdown here.

Norwegian plays poker in bikini: We’re pretty sure if Karin Bruteig played next to us in a bikini, we wouldn’t be concentrating on poker. After losing a prop bet, she had to strip down to a bikini while playing at the Norwegian Poker Championships in Dublin. Video here.
