The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards and gave him an unfair advantage in baccarat.

An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat.
The Borgata filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world.
The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards and gave him an unfair advantage in baccarat.
The casino says the technique, called edge sorting, violates New Jersey casino gambling regulations.
Ivey's lawyer declined to comment Friday.
A lawsuit in Britain makes similar allegations. Ivey has denied any misconduct in that case.
