U.K. COURT RULES PHIL IVEY CHEATED TO WIN $10 MILLION

Poker champion Phil Iveys luck ran out at the U.K.s Supreme Court, which ruled that he cheated at a form of baccarat to win 7.7 million pounds ($10.1 million) at a Genting Bhd. casino in London.

The U.K. Supreme Court was asked to decide whether dishonesty is a necessary element of cheating. Ivey, a 10-time winner of World Series of Poker bracelets, originally sued the London casino for his winnings in 2014.

While the veteran gambler said he was just taking advantage of the dealer and marks on the cards, the top court unanimously ruled Iveys use of a technique called edge-sorting was dishonest. The judges said rather than being clever, Ivey duped the croupier into unwittingly fixing the cards.

"What Mr. Ivey did was to stage a carefully planned and executed sting," the judges said in the ruling, which made numerous references to confidence games.
