Alex Rodriguez

Professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez is not only playing Madonna, he's got a knack for some high stakes poker as well. X17 reported that Rodriguez was spotted at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles playing $10/$20 No Limit Hold'em with wagers up to $10,000 per session. Rodriguez seemed to be in a good mood during the session and even signed autographs for adoring fans.

Apparently Rodriguez is a regular at this casino and at the poker tables as an eyewitness told X17 that he likes to play the high limit tables when he is in town.

Rodriguez is not a stranger to the poker tables as A-Rod was warned about playing poker in illegal poker clubs in New York City back in 2005. Back then the Yankees warned him that playing and visiting illegal poker clubs could be detrimental to his image.
