Poker champion Phil Ivey’s luck ran out at the U.K.’s Supreme Court, which ruled that he cheated at a form of baccarat to win 7.7 million pounds ($10.1 million) at a Genting Bhd. casino in London.

The U.K. Supreme Court was asked to decide whether dishonesty is a necessary element of cheating. Ivey, a 10-time winner of World Series of Poker bracelets, originally sued the London casino for his winnings in 2014.
