Phil Ivey, winner of 10 WSOP bracelets, has counter-sued the Borgata in Atlantic City over the $9.6 million the casino says he owes back because he used a technique called edge sorting to gain an edge over the house,
according to court documents obtained by Card Player. The counter-suit was filed Wednesday in federal court.

Ivey and his playing partner during the controversial 2012 baccarat sessions, Cheung Yin Sun, have claimed that what they did was a legal strategy.
They didn’t touch the cards, which had asymmetries on their backs that were able to be spotted and used to a gambler’s advantage.

Both gamblers want the case against them dismissed with prejudice and the Borgata to pay for their legal fees and court costs under New Jersey’s law pertaining to frivolous lawsuits.
They are also seeking compensatory damages, consequential and punitive damages and “any other relief the court deems equitable and just,” according to the counter-suit.

They allege that the casino committed fraud against them because they say the cards in play were destroyed and it greatly diminishes their ability to defend themselves against the lawsuit.
