Tobey Maguire Eliminated from World Series of Poker
Friday, July 13th, 2007
Tobey Maguire outlasted more than 95% of a field filled with most of poker’s greatest players. Out of 6538 players, Tobey took 291st place. Which is really good among professional and non-professional players.
Alas, he was recently eliminated from the World Series of Poker but got deep enough to earn himself $39,445. So that should help pay off his mortgage. Source: Poker.Bodogbeat.com and our fellow fan InsomniacFreak.
Tobey also had time to hang out with his friend Kevin Connolly. He took his cute 8th month old daughter Ruby with him.
WSOP Updates, $10,000 Main Event, Day 3
Tobey’s still in the game!

797 players survived the six days that made up Days 1A-D, Day 2A and Day 2B of the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event. 621 of them made the money in the highest-profile poker tournament of the year, and 337 of them survived to play on Day 4 and work closer to the final table and poker history.
The field of celebrities at the 2007 Main Event included movie stars, musicians, hockey players, retired baseball players and writers. At the end of Day 3, three of those celebrities remained: actor Tobey Maguire (“Spider-Man”), musician Sully Erna (lead singer, Godsmack), and television writer/producer Sam Simon (co-creator of “The Simpsons”). Maguire and Erna spent time at the same table thanks to the random redraws, and Erna caught a miracle card during hand-for-hand play to survive into the money. Source: PokerNews.com

Tobey Maguire’s Spidey Senses Tingle at the World Series of Poker
Tuesday, July 10th, 2007
Tobey Maguire was dealt A/K suited. The air was silent with tension as he licked his lips and thought, “My Spidey senses are tingling. I’ve got this pot. Ace is the highest card in the deck. I can’t lose.”
Maguire pushed all-in and received one caller who showed pocket Jacks making Maguire a slight underdog.
But similarly to Spiderman 3 being a bad film that still made money, the Flop gave Tobey Maguire a box office smash with top pair: K/Q/4.
With a 3 on the Turn and a 4 on the River Maguire defied the odds and made money, again.
He is now sitting with a respectable $42K and continues in the tournament. Poker.bodogbeat.com
