The UK Supreme Court Judges have agreed to take a fresh look at the Phil Ivey vs. Crockford’s Casino £7.8m punto banco case, giving the poker player new hope of getting his mitts on a much-needed cash injection to pay the Borgata.
Phil Ivey’s baccarat saga is longer than a Max Richter album.
I have just learned on the poker grapevine that Ivey’s legal team has breathed new life into his ailing case against Crockford’s Casino in the UK after losing his High Court appeal at the Court of Appeals in April 2016.
Long before The Borgata Casino & Resort picked a fight with Ivey, the Genting-owned property in Mayfair, London also had a dust-up with him. That was back in August 2012, when Ivey and an accomplice won £7.8m while playing a baccarat derivative known as punto banco.
