Derek Webb (Three Card Poker) & The Ugly Guys.

There is more to my story -the Good, the Bad and the Ugly: http://bit.ly/2EYiNHm
* We were the good guys as recognized by the US government in their federally appropriate tripling of our damages.
The ugly guys were ShuffleMaster (SHFL), the public company we sold the non-British Isles rights to Three Card Pokerô to. During the trial against PGIC we discovered that SHFL had some evidence of the fraud in the patents being asserted against us, which they did not disclose to us when agreeing to defend us against PGIC.
Sometimes the ones who want to appear to be your friends end up causing you the most harm.


* There is more to my story - Part One - Exposing the Bad Guys: http://bit.ly/2IzINtM
On New Year's Eve in 1998 I was at home in Britain when I got a telephone call from a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, who asked: "How does it feel to be sued by a public corporation?" As I was not aware of the suit I could not make any comment. The journalist was looking for any quote to take out of context and add colour to a corporate PR puff story originated by Progressive Gaming International Corp (PGIC).


* Three Card Poker. Wikipedia: http://bit.ly/2ZdmJLV
Prime Table Games continued marketing Three Card Poker until 1999, when Shuffle Master acquired the rights to the game outside the British Isles.
The sale was prompted by a lawsuit filed that year in US federal court by Progressive Gaming International Corporation (PGIC), the then-owners of Caribbean stud poker, alleging patent infringement; Shuffle Master agreed to defend that litigation as part of the purchase.

Subsequently in 2007, Prime Table Games showed in a countersuit that the 1999 PGIC litigation was based on invalid patent claims; PGIC settled for $20 million.
Further, Prime Table Games filed suit against Shuffle Master in 2008 alleging in part that Shuffle Master had undisclosed knowledge that the PGIC claims were invalid prior to the 1999 purchase; it was later settled for over $2 million.


*** The Question is? Is it true, Sometimes the ones who appear to be your friends end up causing you the most harm.

Any Comments from The-Good, The-Bad and The-Ugly guys are Welcome.

How is Derek doing? I haven't seen him in close to 10 years. I used to prototype some games for him.

Hi DRich,

I was in touch with him a couple months ago, and he is doing good.

Thanks for asking.

BTW. I have known Derek for over 25 years, before he invented Three Card Poker.
We use to play poker in the Rainbow Casino in Birmingham UK, and some time he come to my Poker-Club too, after the Casinos close at 4am (The Only Private Poker-Club in Birmingham UK).
