Tobey Maguire made $30-$40 Million in High Stakes Poker

by Jeremy Olson on June 25, 2011

One of the biggest poker stories breaking over the past few days is how Spiderman star Tobey Maguire was named in a high stakes poker lawsuit involving hedge fund manager Brad Ruderman. The crooked manager stole millions of dollars from investors, and he lost over $5 million in poker games around the Los Angeles area. Apparently, Maguire won over $310k from Ruderman in these games, and the defrauded investors are seeking money from both him and the other players.

A big side story to the lawsuit is that Maguire reportedly won between $30 and $40 million over a three-year period in these games. The celebrity gossip website wrote the following regarding what Star Magazine reported on the massive winnings:

Maguire won as much as $1 million a month over a period of three years, one source told Star, which is on newsstands Wednesday.

“That means he could have made up to $30 to $40 million from these games,” the whistle-blowing card shark predicted.

The ‘whistle-blowing card shark’ mentioned in this article is former Victory Poker pro Dan Bilzerian. He also had plenty to say about Maguire as he blasted the A-list actor when speaking to RadarOnline. The poetic poker pro said, “He’s cheap as f**k and plays like a cheap b*tch…a guy who’s worth all that money playing as if he’s broke. Come on, dude.”

Going back to Maguire and his winnings, if the story about him earning $30-$40 million is true, he would no doubt be one of the biggest winners (if not the biggest) of all-time. Obviously Maguire isn’t one of the greatest players of all-time, so the ridiculous sum of money he supposedly won is probably more a product of a good player butting heads with some terrible high stakes fish.
