Celebrity Poker Ring Allegedly Connected to Russian Mafia

It seems like the whole underground Hollywood Poker ring story is becoming more and more like a movie plot by the minute. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone pops up at this point and says, “Hey, this whole thing was just a promotion for the next poker movie starring Tobey Maguire!” But it always has been said that reality can be stranger than fiction, and this newest bit of development seems to only support that idea. Rumor has it that the notorious Russian Mafia is somehow involved in all these million-dollar games.Russian Mafia Cartoon

Bada bing, Bada boom!

Any piece of news will automatically become juicier when celebs are involved, especially high profile ones. So, when it was revealed that Tobey Maguire, the Spiderman Star, won some cold hard cash in a bunch of underground poker games in Hollywood along with other A-list Hollywood celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, along with some high-profile businessmen, directors, and producers, everyone got pretty interested really quick. According to the news, it was Tobey Maguire who really won the most in these poker games. It was also revealed that these games were far from your typical beer-and-chips poker games. In fact, there wasn’t much talking involved and no drinking either. The players considered the game to be serious business. The whole affair had the makings of a Hollywood Blockbuster movie, and more. Now, with the Russian Mafia thrown in the mix, they might just as well nominate this case for the Oscars.

The Mafia

According to rumors, Molly Bloom, the ringleader for these underground gambling games, was targeted by the Russian mafia last 2009 when she tried to flee Los Angeles and head to New York so that she could make a similar set up, but this time for Wall Street Stock Brokers instead of the Hollywood Elites. The Russian Mafia caught up with her and promptly ‘roughed her up’. Her friend says that Molly even has ‘proof’ of the incident, i.e. pictures of herself all bruised and bloody. People speculate that the reason why they beat up Bloom was to intimidate her into keeping quiet should the feds deign to question her. However, when this news came out, Bloom had refused to comment on the matter, and for good reason. Who knows what the Russian Mafia could do to her if she decided to go public with such an accusation?
