Four For Friday - The Poker Room

Way back in the day, I had a blind about some people participating in an underground poker game. It was high limits and a precursor to the Molly Bloom games. Well, it turns out that two of the former participants teamed up to start a new room, but in a much nicer place than the back of a restaurant in Koreatown. I had no idea that this A list mostly movie actor who is an Oscar winner/nominee even knew this permanent A list NBA player who retired not that long ago. You have to be invited to join and there are only about a dozen people so far. Just enough people to make sure they can fill one or two tables a couple of times a month. There are no other athletes involved because the former NBA player said he doesn't like anyone else in the league anyway, and prefers to be around the entertainment community. Apparently no women will ever be invited. No female waitresses or servers. This was both of the founders' mandate. They don't seem to think that the guys, including themselves will be able to refrain from sexually harassing the women or trying to sleep with them and then they might report them which would expose the game. Knowing those two, that is pretty much their thought pattern in life.

Ben the drunk gambler/addict/groper

Tobey Maguire is not an Oscar nominee/winner. Barkley and Jordan did not retire recently.

Jen said...

LooLooEasy...THANK YOU!!! Barkley retired in 2000 and Jordan in 2003, not recently. And both would be considered perm A+, as would Kobe.

Brayson87 said...

Yeah anyone who is famous for raping the help probably shouldn't have female employees.

Da Fresh Prince said...

I do not think that Maguire or Casey are A-list, either.

Dark and Stormy said...

DiCaprio, McGuire, and Kris Humphries

Kobe Bryant, who was notoriously anti social when it came to his peers and Ben Affleck.
