Tobey Maguire Provides Evidence of Poker Losses

The whole underground poker scandal that rocked Hollywood is beginning to get out of hand, what with all the rumors flying all over the place. A lot of the participants in the games have already been suffering quite a lot for their involvement, but none of them more so than Tobey Maguire. The Spiderman Actor has been specifically targeted by the sharks in this matter, considering that he was the one who won quite a bit of money from Ruderman. However, Maguire is more than just a little reluctant to part with that money and has now put forward some evidence showing that he lost some money to Ruderman too, so it should cancel any of the lawyers’ claims out.toby maguire spiderman

The Story so Far

Just recently, several celebrities were exposed to be participants in an underground poker game that took place in Hollywood. The whole issue would not have gathered so much attention, though, if it wasn’t for Ruderman, instigator of the Ponzi scheme. Ruderman spent the money of investors trusted him with on the underground poker games, and he happened to lose quite a lot of that money to Tobey Maguire. As a result, Maguire’s being hounded by the bankruptcy lawyers who are demanding that he give back the money he ‘illegally’ won from Ruderman. The lawyers claim that since the games were illegal under California law, then the money does not legally belong to Maguire.

Maguire Fights Back

Of course, Maguire maintains that the games were not illegal because they weren’t being controlled or hosted by a ‘house’. Moreover, he says that if the lawyers are after the money he won from Ruderman, then the money he lost to Ruderman should also be considered. Sure enough, he managed to show photocopies of cheques that he addressed to Ruderman wich totaed $168,500. As it turns out, Maguire has a specific bank account that he opened solely for his poker games. Still, the amount that he lost to Ruderman does not exactly balance things out because he lost only $168,500 while the lawyers are trying to get $300,000 from him. The losses halve the amount he has to pay, if ever he really is forced to do so. Meanwhile, Maguire really has to thank his lucky stars that those who were involved in the case were not being tried criminally, which would be an even bigger headache than his current run in with the law.
