Awkwafina is announced as the star of a movie featuring Phil Ivey's Baccarat exploits
Do you remember the edge-sorting issues Phil Ivey had been dealing with the courts? Well, lo and behold there will be a movie about the Baccarat exploits starring Awkwafina, of Crazy Rich Asians, as Cheung Yin Sun, Phil's baccarat partner. At this time, no word as to who will play the part of Phil Ivey.
Have you seen Mr. Ivey on camera when he isn't playing poker?
This will be as relevant as ever at the poker table in the movie about poker. He doesn't need makeup.

I would watch this movie,,, especially if they explain more details about the whole situation, and make it unboring wonder who they would get to play Phil Ivey?.... ... ??

I reproduce my comment from the article page here, in the hope of spreading actual, factual information.
Soon, I will make a tediously detailed thread trying (probably in vain) to explain edge sorting. For now, I will state, as I have at least a dozen times in the forum that THERE WERE NO PRINTING DEFECTS IN THESE CARDS!!! These cards were Gemaco brand I believe. Gemaco, and other companies make "full bleed" style cards of the highest quality that can be differentiated from one another IF and ONLY IF they are turned 180 degrees straight out of a new pack. Ivey and Sun got the dealer to turn certain cards 180 degrees before playing. IMO, this is cheating, but that is irrelevant to the fact that the cards were not defective. The Borgata even sued the company that made the cards - and lost.
War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength - and here you thought this was so "36 Years Ago"
