Gambling With An Edge: December 6, 2012

"Gambling with an Edge” is a weekly talk-radio broadcast where Michael Shackleford and Bob Dancer interview a top name in the gaming industry, usually an expert in some field of advantage play (though not necessarily a player). The radio show airs 7 PM (PDT) on Thursday nights on KLAV Talk-Radio 1230am in Las Vegas. I first appeared on this show on March 1, 2012. Yesterday was my second appearance. It was a lot of fun and we definitely got deeper into some substantial topics than we did the first time.

What is Edge Sorting?

Phil Ivey and Cheung Yin Sun brought edge sorting to the attention of millions when Ivey admitted he edge sorted at Crockfords Casino in London in 2012. As you surely know, in October, 2014, Ivey lost his lawsuit to recoup his $12M in winnings from Crockfords. Subsequently, Ivey was sued by the Borgota casino for $9M. Ivey was determined to have edge sorted with Sun at the Borgtata, and $9M is the amount Ivey and Sun won during the period they employed this technique.
