so a company/team wanted to give fans something new. Perhap

edit:casino time:2019-02-23

The name of a single-table poker room isn’t anything that is going to cause tremors throughout the globe, but it really was quite the statement when you think about it. Phil Ivey was only 33-years old at the time and was already considered the best poker player in the world; the competition wasn’t even considered very close. And hell, he was considered the best player in the world for a few years before that, too, rivaled in the poker world arguably by only Chip Reese, who passed away in 2007 (trophy for the WSOP’s $50,000 Poker Players Championship is named after him).

But why? The ARIA claims it’s just a thing to do.

So, The Ivey Room had its name changed for…reasons?

Bobby’s Room is named after poker legend Bobby Baldwin, who also just so happened to be the president of the Bellagio when it opened in 1998. That the high stakes poker room bore his name was cool, but not unusual. Phil Ivey, though, was still a young man in 2010 who probably still had his best poker years ahead of him and now he was receiving the honor of having his name hanging outside the door of the high stakes room at one of the most prestigious venues in Las Vegas.

The Ivey Room, In Brief

 so a company/team wanted to give fans something new. Perhaps a team was shit for a long time and wanted to forge a new identity. Perhaps that team was the Milwaukee Brewers and thought it would be a good idea to ditch the most unique and interesting logo in the history of American sports and go with a generic prince 21 nights

Reason for Renaming is Awfully Vague

Phil Ivey, now 42-years old, joined Baldwin in the Poker Hall of Fame two years ago in his first year of eligibility. And now an era has come to an end, his name taken down at ARIA.

That has to be the real reason here. ARIA is owned by MGM Resorts International, the same company that owns the Borgata in Atlantic City. It is the Borgata that is in the midst of a prolonged legal battle with Ivey, who used a controversial “edge sorting” technique in 2012 to win nearly $10 million at baccarat at Borgata. Borgata won its case in 2016, as a New Jersey judge ordered Ivey to repay $10.13 million to the Borgata (this number includes half a million won at craps using baccarat winnings), but the Borgata has yet to collect. A judge recently permitted Borgata to go after Ivey’s assets in Nevada.

Or perhaps a company wants to rebrand because it wants to distance itself from something that had developed a negative connotation.

“We thought it was time to rename the room,” ARIA Director of Poker Operations Sean McCormack told CardPlayer this week. “The idea to call it ‘Table 1’ actually came from Elayne [Teitelbaum], our host. It’s so fitting because a lot of players have been calling it ‘Table 1’ for a while now anyway. [They were] coming in and asking if table 1 had a game going or was available.”
