Phil Ivey counter-sues Borgata casino over edge-sorting case
Posted by Defrag, July 30
Phil Ivey and his gambling accomplice, Cheng Yin Sun, have been battling against few law suits against quite a long time. It all started after Ivey took few casinos for insane amount of money using a cheating technique called "edge sorting" while playing Baccarat against casino. Ivey was sued by multiple casinos and now he is taking the action other way around: he counter sued Marina District Development Co., LLC, parent company of the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

In 2012 Ivey asked Borgata to give him access to a high-stakes Baccarat game, including a private gaming area, a dealer who spoke fluent Mandarin Chinese, a permission to have his friend with him (Cheng Yin Sun), an automatic card shuffler, and an eight-deck shoe of purple Gemaco playing cards as the last condition. Borgata accepted his conditions and decided he could bet maximum $50,000 per hand - Ivey happily deposited $1mln.

Ivey then proceeded to completely destroy casino, winning $2.416mln in April and another $1.597 in May. In July Borgata allowed him to double his bet, and he won extra $4.788mln. Last round in October ended with another $825,000 score.

Are Spin&Go'es beatable or not?

Introduction to Spin&Go tournaments(skip that if you know how they work)
When Spin&Go tournaments were introduced there was an enormous migration of recreational players from normal Sit&go tournaments to Spin&go format - it's a perfect format to attract that kind of players.
If you don't know how they work - each tournament is 3-max, winner-take-all, hyper turbo Sit&go with a random prize pool. Buy-ins range from $1 to $60, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 3,000 times your buy-in. The highest multiplies are obviously super rare (1 of 100,000 for the 3,000xbuy-in, even the 240x multiplier have a chance of just 5 out of 100,000).

The games are insanely fast, give a thrill of emotion through the random prize pool and that's what recreational players were looking for. Jackpot was hit by PokerStars.
