Tobey Maguire's 'POKER ACCOUNT' Shows Losses

7/11/2011 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tobey Maguire has filed legal documents -- obtained by TMZ -- showing he was a loser as well as a winner when it came to high-stakes poker, and therefore he shouldn't have to return any winnings to the crook he beat.   And Tobey apparently played so much, he had separate poker accounts.

Maguire is responding to a lawsuit filed against him in connection with Brad Ruderman, a convicted Ponzi scheme felon.  Ruderman is in bankruptcy, and the trustees want Tobey to repay more than $300,000 he won from Ruderman in Texas hold 'em.

Maguire included 3 checks in his legal papers, showing he paid Ruderman a total of $168,500 between July, 2007 and January, 2009.

This story is as boring as that of the Dodgers. Who cares they play poker for money and win and lose. Not an exciting story sorry to say. Give us some Lindsay story to hate on lol

Sounds like a gambling problem to me. Better keep his day job to supply this dangerous habit.

Only a moron would leave a paper trail with all the dough these idiots have. Were I they, I'd have stacks of hundo's for this purpose were I slime gambling Hollywood mutt. Idiots.

They all deserve so little in this town today, but yet have so much handed to them for practically nothing.. it's freaking incomprehensible.

Who cares? Toby can surely afford it, and it is not illegal.

Next story. Maybe TMZ can run some more inane Ryan Dunn stories.

$105,000 is the maximum that he should have been paid for phoning in Spider-Man 1-3.

He's so stupid with his money, it's retarded.

I guess his squeaky clean, save the planet, don't eat meat, don't wear leather, marry a hollywood sweetheart jewelry designer and have a couple of kids was just too much. Everyone needs a vice, so just man up and take your lumps. Nobody thinks playing poker is a bad thing, except those pesky feds. Good luck buddy.

I'm pretty sure Tobey isn't the only person the crook lost to. Are the trustees going after everyone else he played poker with?

I owe my bookie another 8 grand. And yes when you start losing, you have to quit, or else, because the losing streak will never end.

This is a shameful addiction. All of these guys really are hurting their reputation, not to mention their families. Horrible.
