Daly, who started with a bogey and a double bogey on his first three holes, was at 9-under 201 and poised to capture his first victory in 19 months. Montgomerie, who only last week ended his 19-month victory drought, closed with 10 straight pars for a 69, giving him another tee time with Daly today. They will be joined by Sergio Garcia, who shot a 67 to join Woods at 7 under. Perrot takes lead: Chile’s Nicole Perrot moved into position for her first LPGA Tour victory, shooting a 7-under 64 to take a three-stroke lead after the third round of the Longs Drugs Challenge at Auburn, Calif. The 21-year-old Perrot, the 2001 U.S. Girls champion, had a 14-under 199 total on The Ridge Golf Course. She had eight birdies – four in a row on Nos. 3-6 – and a bogey in the best round of her first full season on the tour. “It’s a lot of fun, but it’s stressful,” Daly said. “It’s great to be in this position, but it’s not the easiest thing to do.” Tiger Woods somehow finished two shots behind. John Daly relied on the long ball to get back into contention, then to take the lead away from Colin Montgomerie on Saturday in an American Express Championship that kept a chilled gallery in suspense. Daly hit a 378-yard drive that set up an eagle on the par-5 10th, ripped a 292-yard drive into the stiff wind for a chip-and-putt birdie on the par-4 16th, and finished with a 3-under 67 on the Harding Park course in San Francisco for a one-shot lead over Montgomerie. Sweden’s Liselotte Neumann (64) and South Korea’s Hee-Won Han (66) were 11 under, and Sherri Turner (66), Jennifer Rosales (67) and Sherri Steinhauer (69) followed at 9-under. Han won the Office Depot Championship on Monday in Rancho Palos Verdes. Hall of Famers Juli Inkster (67) and Beth Daniel (70) were in a group at 8-under, and Annika Sorenstam was nine strokes back at 5-under after a 71. Quigley has advantage: Dana Quigley shot a season-best 8-under 64 to take a one-stroke lead over Loren Roberts in the Greater Hickory Classic at Conover, N.C. The 58-year-old Quigley, a two-time winner this year who leads the Champions Tour money list with $1,812,298, had a 12-under 132 total on the Rock Barn Golf & Spa’s Jones Course. Roberts, the Jeld-Wen Tradition winner in August, shot a 65. Jay Haas (67), Jim Ahern (66) and Tom McKnight (68) were 9 under, and Brad Bryant (67) and Lonnie Nielsen (70) were another stroke back. Bickerton on top: England’s John Bickerton shot a 2-under 69 to take a one-stroke lead over compatriot Stuart Little in the Abama Open de Canarias at Tenerife, Canary Islands. Bickerton had a 7-under 206 total. Little shot a 72. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Share on LinkedIn The poker player Phil Ivey has lost his court bid to recover £7.7m ( $10.2m) of winnings from a London casino.The 40-year-old American has been fighting to recover the sum since successfully playing a version of baccarat known as Punto Banco at Crockfords Club in Mayfair in 2012.The hearing at the supreme court considered whether dishonesty was a necessary element of the offence of cheating.Ivey had challenged a 2016 majority decision in the court of appeal dismissing his case against Genting Casinos UK, which owns Crockfords. Genting said a technique he used, called edge-sorting, was not a legitimate strategy, while Ivey maintained that he won fairly.Five justices unanimously upheld the majority decision of the court of appeal, which dismissed his case on the basis that being knowingly dishonest was not a necessary element of “cheating”.After the game in question, Ivey was told the money would be wired to him in Las Vegas, but it never arrived, although his stake of £1m was returned.Genting said the technique of edge-sorting used by Ivey, which involves identifying small differences in the pattern on the reverse of playing cards and exploiting that information to increase the chances of winning, was not a legitimate strategy.Ivey did not personally touch any cards, but persuaded the croupier to rotate the most valuable cards by intimating that he was superstitious.In the court of appeal, Lady Justice Arden said the Gambling Act 2005 provided that someone may cheat “without dishonesty or intention to deceive: depending on the circumstances it may be enough that he simply interferes with the process of the game”.There was no doubt, she added, that the actions of Ivey and another gambler, Cheung Yin Sun, interfered with the process by which Crockfords played the game of Punto Banco with Ivey. Stephen Parkinson, head of criminal litigation at Kingsley Napley, the law firm that represented Crockfords, said: “This is one of the most significant decisions in criminal law in a generation. The concept of dishonesty is central to a whole range of offences, including fraud.“For 35 years, juries have been told that defendants will only be guilty if the conduct complained of was dishonest by the standards of ordinary, reasonable and honest people, and also that they must have realised that ordinary, honest people would regard their behaviour as dishonest. “The supreme court has now said that this second limb of the test does not represent the law and that directions based upon it ought no longer to be given by the courts.” Law (US) Share on Pinterest Share via Email Reuse this content Gambling Share on Messenger Since you’re here… Share on Facebook Share on Twitter UK supreme court Topics news Share on WhatsApp Support The Guardian Poker
