"I'm getting a second shot," poker pro says.

Professional gambler Phil Ivey has been granted leave to appeal the ruling handed down by a British Court regarding 7.8 million in denied winnings from Genting's Crockfords Casino club in which the club accused him of using a controversial edge sorting technique claiming it was tantamount to cheating and against the rules of the game.

Readers of the AZ Online Casinos site news may recall, Ivey used what he deemed a legitimate technique when playing Punto Banco at the Mayfair club in August 2012 with a female companion, however a British court ruled in favour of Crockfords in 2014 saying he breached the rules of the game.

A British judge said in granting the appeal "his case raises an important question of law and has a real prospect of success".

"This is really great news," Ivey told The Daily Mail. "I am getting a second shot and I'm hoping we will win this time around.

'It is not in my nature to cheat, which is why I was so bitterly disappointed by the judge's decision a year ago, even though he said I was a truthful witness."

The case will play out before the British Appellate Court on December 10 2015.

"When you're accused of cheating it's a very big deal in gambling. I'm not allowed in certain casinos because of what happened. But my colleagues have been tremendously supportive".
