A-Rod busted in illegal Poker ring !





The Yankees slugger reportedly played in the illegal high-stakes poker ring in that included A-list celebrities such as Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Rodriguez also recently played in a separate high-stakes game that had a $40,000 buy-in, Star magazine and RadarOnline.com reported today.

Poker player Adam Bilzerian told the publications “I was surprised to see just how good a poker player Alex is.” In one game with the past two years, “A-Rod won a bunch of money,” Bilzerian said.

The ring that included celebrities came to light recently after Maguire was sued by a trustee trying to recover money lost in a Ponzi scheme allegedly masterminded by a Beverly Hills hedge fund manager. Maguire won more than $300,000 in the poker games from the hedge fund manager, Star has reported.

The poker ring cost $100,000 to get into.

“Initially, A-Rod came to the game and simply watched,” one source told Star.

“But once he knew what it was all about, he brought into the game. He played two or three times, I would estimate.”
