The Las Vegas Review Journal is reporting that a $3 million exchange at an Aria poker table is now center stage in a lawsuit filed in a Clark County court.
From the LVRJ:
In late May, Australian poker pro Matthew Kirk, known for his unorthodox play, scooted increments of $500,000 and $1 million in chips across the felt to Czech casino owner and entrepreneur Leon Tsoukernik.
At least two other people were at the table in the high-stakes Ivey Room while the exchange occurred, according to video surveillance obtained by Kirk’s lawyers Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff.
Within 12 minutes after confirming that he received the last million, Tsoukernik appeared to indicate he wouldn’t pay the money back
