A major casino operator is accusing Phil Ivey, one of the world's top poker players and gamblers in general, of cheating at baccarat in the UK last summer.
As a result, they're refusing to pay him $12 million in winnings.
The Phil Ivey cheating scandal case has rocked the gaming world by pitting one of its most charismatic young stars against a major resort and casino operator.
The game in question took place on August 20-21 at Crockfords, one of London's oldest, most respected casinos, and has escalated this week.
The long-simmering dispute has now gone fully public as Phil Ivey filed a legal claim against the Genting Group in London's High Court.
