Poker is a game that’s enjoyed by people from all walks of life. The rich and famous, the blue collar and everyone in between.
Ben Affleck, Bill Gates, Tobey Maguire, Nelly, Jennifer Tilly, Michael Phelps, Alex Rodriguez, Russell Westbrook, Paul Pierce, Sergio Garcia, Rafael Nadal, Ronaldo and Neymar are just a small sample of the notable figures who have been known to enjoy a turn on the felt.
There’s a secret world to poker, however, as some of the biggest games don’t take place at a casino or even a poker club. Some of the richest poker games in the world actually take place in the privacy of homes or hotel rooms where the ultra-rich trade pots that are worth cars or even houses to mere mortals.
Sometimes it's not even about the money. It's about the famous faces who sit down at the table away from the prying eyes of a public casino.
