Ivey Granted Leave To Appeal In Crockfords Case (update)

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Mar 3, 2017

GBP 7.8 million at stake

The almost 5-year-long Crockfords Club vs. Phil Ivey, GBP 7.8 million edge sorting saga will continue as the UK Supreme Court granted Ivey permission Tuesday to appeal an order handed down by the Court of Appeals in November 2016 in which the court found in favour of Crockfords.
Readers will recall Crockfords refused to pay Ivey GBP 7.8 million in Punto Banco winnings after the casino accused the professional gambler of edge sorting.
"I am so pleased that the Supreme Court has granted me permission to fight for what I genuinely believe is the right thing to do in my circumstances, and for the entire gaming industry," Ivey said. "I look forward to the Supreme Court reversing the decision against me."

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
