A-Rod being investigated for illegal poker games

Hollywood A-listers Matt Damon, Toby Maguire and Leonardo Dicaprio are being accused of being involved in a high stakes illegal poker ring, and now the scandal has infiltrated the sports world. Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is being investigated by the MLB in connection with the gambling ring. Poker pro Dan Blizerian revealed how things quickly got out of hand during a Beverly Hills high stakes poker game, “I would estimate A-Rod lost, like, a few thousand dollars that night. After everything that happened, he paid-up and left.”

ESPN New York spoke to a source within the MLB who said, “We’re talking to people involved in the investigation and we’re taking this very seriously. Because he had been warned about this before, I would say a possible suspension would be very much in play.”
