Cry foul
    2017-October-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

喊冤牌手Phil Ivey申请向康乐福赌场讨回自己的赌博赢利的官司宣告失利。请看本报昨日的报道:

He’s long been a winner at cards, but American poker star Phil Ivey’s good fortune does not extend to Britain’s Supreme Court — he lost a major case Wednesday that will keep him from cashing in.

The British Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that Ivey had used illegitimate means to amass 7.7 million pounds (US$10.2 million) in winnings during a stint at the baccarat table in 2012. He and a colleague were found to have used a technique known as “edge sorting” to gain an unfair advantage while gambling at the Crockfords casino in London’s posh Mayfair district.

Crockfords cried foul and refused to pay his winnings, leading Ivey to pursue his claim in court.

报道中的cry foul就是“喊冤、声称有不公平或者非法的事情发生”,foul就是“犯规”。例如:

Rather than welcoming these bargains, importing countries tend to cry foul and raise anti-dumping duties.

进口国并不欢迎这些廉价商品,反而往往鸣冤叫屈并提高反倾销关税。
