New Jersey's Borgata claims self-described 'greatest' gambler won $9.6M by cheating at cards

An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme.

The Borgata filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., who calls himself the greatest gambler of all time.

The suit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange so-called "good cards" and gave him an unfair advantage in Baccarat.

The casino claims the technique, called "edge sorting," violates New Jersey casino gambling regulations.

A message left with a lawyer who previously represented Ivey was not immediately returned Friday. Ivey's website did not include a contact email or a phone number.
