“Molly’s Game”, the new memoire from the so-called “Poker Princess” Molly Bloom, arrived in bookstores Thursday (June 12, 2014) and it’s not without its juicy tidbits blasting the likes of “Spider-Man” actor Tobey Maguire. 

He “was the worst tipper, the best player, and the absolute worst loser,” according to Bloom, who organized high stakes celebrity poker games Maguire played in.

The 36-year-old Bloom also details how Maguire would get angry at how much the hostess was making - $50,000 on some nights – and would sometimes order her to “bark like a seal who wanted a fish” for a $1000 chip (tip). 

She tried to laugh it off, but Maguire persisted, “I’m not kidding. What’s wrong? You’re too rich now? You won’t bark for a thousand dollars?”

Bloom also claims in her memoire that Maguire would refuse to play without his Shuffle Master.
