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.

Looks like three different handwritings. He has someone cut the check and he just signs?

Uhhhhhhhhhhmm. Am I the only one that noticed the hand writing on each check is totally different? I'm not sure if that would be relevant to the case but definitely something to look at.

in the beginning i thought this was an interesting story but now it just seems like ppl are reaching. all of these comments of the check writing (payee, pay to order of, etc.) is ridiculous. so long as HIS SIGNATURE is the same who gives a **** that someone who works for him (more than likely personal assistants)filled out the rest of it.

I believe that he gambled the money away. But the handwriting is NOT the same on the checks...and yes his assistant may have filled some of the out! But that does not explain why the signature doesn't look the same in even 2 out of 3!!

Inga . . . nobody cares . . . and from what I've researched Tobey's a BIG winner. Of course he loses sometimes like EVERY OTHER GAMBLER but he's a talented poker player who's made in excess of 6 figgas. He does what he wants with HIS money . . . U mad cuz he doesn't wanna pay for YOUR expenses? lol
