This is purely an unsubstantiated rumour, but its doing the rounds in the UK industry.

Allegedly, Ivey marked the cards.

Make of that what you will.

It was agreed that neither he nor his attractive companion ever touched the cards.

I never said it was a reliable source. Apparently the suggestion that he didnt touch the cards was erroneous.

The other rumour doing the rounds is that he tracked the shuffle after the first few shoes.

A third rumour that is popping up is that there was a flaw in the cards themselves.

I wouldt even like to guess as to what happened.

Everyone is convinced that Ivey was cheating, though?

No I just think he was honestly trying to win money to pay all the Full Tilt players.
