Ivey (Appellant) v Genting Casinos (UK) Ltd t/a Crockfords (Respondents)

An important case takes place at the Supreme Court in the UK tomorrow.

Phillip Ivey, top poker player, is appealing. https://www.supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2016-0213.html

Two themes might be of relevance/interest to bridge players:

- the practice of edge-sorting and non-symmetrical cards#  

- the concept "honest cheating"

 

Make yourself a cup of coffee and read the judgment appeal link on the page.  One of the judges sitting tomorrow is a bridge player.
