Oh, dear. I agree with Mr Ivey (and Mr Hickman) that this was legitimate gamesmanship, not dishonesty. The odds are stacked in favour of the house, and if Mr Ivey has the skill to reverse that, good luck to him.

Neil's quote describes punto banco as a game "of pure chance, with cards...unknowable by the punters". This premise, on which the entire judgement appears to be predicated, is false. The cards may be unknown, but they are not unknowable. It is up to the professional gambler to know them (or at least to have a pretty shrewd idea).
