Daniel Negreanu delivers Twitter Bashing to Borgata for suing Phil Ivey

As we discussed last week, famed poker pro Phil Ivey is being sued by the Borgata for $9.6 million. The leading Atlantic City casino alleges that Ivey and his accomplice, Cheng Yin Sun, defrauded them through a baccarat advantage-play technique called "edge sorting."

Borgata levels $9.6m Lawsuit at Phil Ivey for Edge Sorting

Just last weekend, we were discussing how poker pro Phil Ivey dished out some great tips on online poker tells. This weekend, however, he's in the news for a more negative reason since the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is suing the 9-time WSOP champion for $9.6 million.

9-Time WSOP Winner Phil Ivey offers 'Top 5 Online Poker Tells'

Phil Ivey has almost $16 million in online poker winnings and another $21.2 million in live tournament winnings. So when Ivey offers up a strategy tidbit, people tend to listen.

Since opening his new training site, IveyPoker, he's been giving out more than tidbits lately. In fact, the 9-time WSOP champion recently wrote a piece on the 'Top 5 Online Poker Tells.'

Now, anybody who's well-versed in strategy has probably come across one of these articles. But the article is so much more important when it's coming from a guy who's played against the best and beaten the best.

Sam Trickett talks Preparation for 2014 WSOP

One of the bigger stories heading into the 2014 WSOP will no doubt be Sam Trickett. For one thing, the Brit will be competing in the $1 million buy-in 2014 Big One for One Drop tournament again. He famously finished runner-up to Antonio Esfandiari in 2012 and hit a $10 million payday. So the poker world will be watching with interest to see what he does as a follow up two years later.

Could the Shot Clock come to WSOP Too?

The past month or so has been marked by a lot of talk of implementing a shot clock in the World Poker Tour. Nothing is set in stone, but WPT host Mike Sexton did reveal the results of an L.A. Poker Classic survey, which showed 80% of players are in favor of the shot clock. Given these numbers, we have to think that the proposed 30-second shot clock will at least be experimented with on the final table of future WPT events.

Three Satellites being offered for 2014 WSOP Big One for One Drop

Do you have $25,300 lying around that you can use to play in a 2014 WSOP Big One for One Drop satellite? Odds are that you don't. But if you did, you'd have more chances to win a $1 million seat to the One Drop because the amount of available satellites has been bumped up to three.

Some may recall that only two One Drop satellite seats were offered in 2012. However, the WSOP decided to expand by featuring $25.3k satellite tournaments at the Aria, Bellagio and the WSOP. Winners will have their $1 million buy-in paid to the 2014 One Drop, which runs from June 29th - July 1st.

3-Time WSOP Champ Barry Greenstein talks pursing Pro Golf

Many poker pros develop talents in other areas before focusing on playing cards for a living. Three-time WSOP champion Barry Greenstein is one of these players since he used to be a pretty good golfer before turning his full-time attention towards poker.

Disgraced Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer to play in 2014 WSOP

Despite years of success on the felt, both Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer became outcasts in the poker world after Black Friday (April 15th, 2011). Two of the main shot-callers at the old Full Tilt Poker, Ferguson and Lederer continued paying themselves millions of dollars, despite not having enough funds to cover all player deposits. So when the US Department of Justice forced FTP out of the American market, the poker site quickly spiraled out of control, taking everybody's money with it.

9-Time WSOP Champ Phil Ivey gets into the Boxing Game

Phil Ivey really seems to be transitioning into the business world these days. Just weeks after launching poker training services at IveyPoker, the 9-time WSOP champion has gotten involved in a new endeavor called All In Entertainment. And what's really interesting about all of this is that his co-founder is Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis.

Survey says WSOP was Too Harsh with Chan Pelton Punishment

After deliberating for about two weeks, the WSOP and Palm Beach Kennel Club (PBKC) handed down a very stiff punishment to Chan Pelton. The two-time WSOP Circuit champion, who stole a chip during his victory in the WSOPC PBKC $1,125 NLHE tourney, had this third WSOP Circuit title taken away, his $47,061 prize money revoked, and was given a permanent ban at Caesars properties and any place that holds WSOP events.
