Edge Sorting Scam

Edge Sorting Scam  World renowned championship poker player Phil Ivey has an extremely successful night at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City when he won a grand total of $9.6 million at the baccarat table. He did so using a method called edge sorting which involves spotting and memorising any perceivable defects in specific cards, as to spot when them they come around again.

While an intelligent move and not illegal, it of course is frowned upon by casinos looking to maintain their edge. On this occasion Ivey had noticed that the back of some cards had a full diamond pattern, whereas on other cards they were cut in half. The Borgata filed a lawsuit against Ivey. This is the second such edge sorting lawsuit that Ivey has faced.
