Tobey Maguire poker skills tie him to bankruptcy case


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tobey Maguire’s name now has been linked to a bankruptcy case, though the details are far more sordid that you’d imagine.

Maguire reportedly participated in unlicensed, high-stakes poker games being held in posh Los Angeles hotels and won … big, according to TMZ. One of the players who coughed up dough to Maguire’s poker pot, though, was hedge fund manager Bradley Ruderman, who currently is in jail for running a ponzi scheme. Because Ruderman’s company is in bankruptcy, the courts are going after his money any place they can find it … including in Maguire’s pockets.

“Problem for Tobey — in California unlicensed poker games are illegal so the winnings are considered ill-gotten,” TMZ reports. “As for how much, the docs say more than $300,000 between 2007 and 2008.”

Will Maguire have to pay up? And who else is hanging out at these high-profile poker games? Hopefully details will continue to emerge as this case soldiers on.
