Online Poker Site Review » Poker News » Tobey Maguire Settles Lawsuit


It has been reported movie star, and expert poker player Tobey Maguire has settles his lawsuit related to the 2008 Hollywood poker games. Maguire was being sued for $300,000 as a result of a poker game involving disgraced businessman Bradley Ruderman.

It has been widely reported Maguire agreed to an $80,000 settlement with the bankruptcy trustee. I am sure Tobey Maguire is glad to get past this situation. I think it is awful the way his name has been drug through the mud, simply because he won at poker. It is important to remember Tobey Maguire is simply another victim in this case.

In 2004, Maguire took up tournament poker. He has finished in the money in several events and has been tutored by poker professional Daniel Negreanu. Maguire can be seen on ESPN’s coverage of the 2005, 2006, and 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Championship.

Phil Hellmuth said during the June 28, 2007, episode of Poker After Dark that Tobey has won $10 million by playing poker in Hollywood. Maguire played in the 2007 World Series of Poker. He survived days 1a, 2a and 3 but was eliminated in 292nd place on the fourth day, taking $39,445 in prize money.
