In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll take a look at another hit for Phil Ivey, a clutch David Peters performance and a goofy Liv Boeree.

1) Phil Ivey Loses $10m Ruling

Phil Ivey has been ordered to pay back the $10m he won playing Punto Banco at the Borgata in 2012.

Last week U.S. District Court Judge Noel Hillman ordered Ivey and partner Cheng Yin Sun to return the entire $10.1m haul the pair won by utilizing a defect in the playing cards Borgata used at the time.

The ruling would essentially return both sides to where they were before Ivey and Sun walked into the Borgata in 2012.

The judge denied Borgata’s request that Ivey pay back the $250,000 it doled out to the man in 2012.

It’s been a rough five years for Ivey with courts also ruling with Crockford’s Casino against him in 2014. Crockford’s withheld $9.6m in winnings due to concerns over edge-sorting.

Ivey’s legal team has already stated there will be an appeal in the Borgata case.

2) Peters Clips Holz for GPI POY

It would be understandable if you thought Fedor Holz had GPI Player of the Year honors wrapped up for 2016 but a surging David Peters just passed him in dramatic fashion at EPT Prague.

Earlier today Peters finished third in the EPT Prague Main Event for €397,300 to squeak past the 3,644 GPI points that Holz had accumulated this year.

Holz accomplishments this year have been very well publicized (that happens when you win $16m) but Peters is no slouch either.

Peters recorded 27 cashes in 2016 and incredibly 23 of those results were top 10.

It was also an absolutely clutch performance for Peters as the EPT Prague Main Event was the last major of the year and he needed third place or better to pass Holz.
