Don’t Play Poker With Spiderman

Apparently Tobey MaGuire, best known as the actor who played Spiderman and the go to actor whenever a jockey needs to be cast for a horse racing movie, is being sued over an illegal gambling ring that ran secret multi-million dollar poker games.

An FBI Investigation found that Brad Ruderman, the CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, lost $25 million of investor money in the poker games, including over $300,000 to Maguire. The games had a $100,000 buy-in.  So, Brad Ruderman is a shitty poker player and a fucking moron.

Lawyers for Ruderman’s clients are filing several lawsuits against the winners, in order to retrieve some of the money. Maguire was reportedly the biggest winner in the game, winning up to $1 million a month for three years.  Is Tobey that good a player or is he a fucking mechanic fixing the deck?

Other taller actors were involved in the poker ring, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon; however, they are not being sued. Despite his role in Rounders as the legendary poker player Mike McD, one source recalled, “Matt never won.”
