Poker pro, friend to re­pay $10.1M in casino law­suit

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

AT­LANTIC CITY | Poker pro Phil Ivey and a com­pan­ion must re­turn more

than $10 mil­lion they won from an At­lantic City casino while play­ing cards that were ar­ranged in a cer­tain way to give the play­ers an edge.

A fed­eral judge pre­vi­ously had ruled Mr. Ivey and com­pan­ion player Cheng Yin Sun didn’t meet their obli­ga­tion to fol­low gam­bling reg­u­la­tions on four oc­ca­sions in 2012 by hav­ing a dealer at the Bor­gata ar­range Bac­carat cards so they could tell what kind of card was com­ing next.

Last week the judge or­dered the pair to re­turn $10.1 mil­lion to the casino. The or­der by U.S. District Judge Noel Hill­man es­sen­tially re­turned both sides to where they were be­fore Mr. Ivey and Mr. Sun be­gan gam­bling at the Bor­gata.

The sum in­cludes money that Mr. Ivey won play­ing craps with some of the money he won at the card ta­ble.
